Cowgirls defeat Eagle Grove, lose to St. Edmond

Jossie Sann drives the lane and tries to draw the foul in last week’s home game with the Eagles. The senior finished with 14 points and had seven rebounds. She scored 12 points on Friday night at St. Edmond, along with gathering 12 rebounds.

With three Cowgirls scoring in double figures, the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows girls varsity basketball team had little trouble in downing Eagle Grove last Tuesday night. The 58-37 home win was their second in a row to start the season. It was 9-4 Cowgirls after one quarter and 26-15 at the half. The red and black then outscored the Eagles 18 points to 12 to extend it to a 17-point advantage after three periods.

  “We were a little sluggish in the first quarter again,” said head coach Kevin Kakacek. “The Eagles usually come out strong at the start, but Jossie (Sann) stepped up in the second quarter and everyone else followed her. We then came out in the second half with a big third quarter. All the starters played a good game.”

  Jenalee Hinkle had a nice night pouring in 21 points on 9 of 18 from the field, which included a three-pointer. Sann scored 14 points and Maddie Disney 13 points which included a trey. Megan Hoing and Kenzie Kolb each added four points, with Breanna Ellis and Brook Boyd scoring one point apiece.
