Lady Maroons unable to withstand Dillon defense

By: Logan Parvinen

The Butte Central Lady Maroons traveled to Dillon to take on the defending Class-A Western Conference Champion Dillon Beavers in a match-up that proved too much for the Lady Maroons as the Beavers cruised to a 59-26 victory.

The main takeaway from this game was Dillons overall defensive toughness and speed which the Lady Maroons couldn’t quite overcome. The full-court press from Dillon caused numerous turnovers and missed passes. The Beavers also dominated the boards while also causing havoc to the Lady Maroons in the paint.

The Lady Maroons were able to show defensive prowess of their own by allowing only 24 points in the second half. Montana Tech commit Brooke Badonivac was the leading scorer for the Lady Maroons with 14 points. Freshman Arika Stajcar was able to drain a couple three-point buckets early in the game to finish with 6 points on the evening.

Mollie Drew, who missed a majority of the second and third quarter due to foul trouble, finished with 2 points. Renee Creekmore and Amanda Weelock also finished with 2 points for the Lady Maroons.

Dillon had eight players add points to the scoreboard. Sydney Peterson, Halie Fitzgerald, and Leila Stennerson finished with 10 points each. Ariel Thomas scored 8 points and Kyle Konen scored 7 points, but they were the two main players who caused havoc defensively.

The main goal for the Maroons is to learn from the mistakes and get better each and every game. It is also crucial to keep a level head and not get frustrated regardless of what your record on the season says.

The Lady Maroons are set to host the Corvallis Lady Blue Devils on Tuesday December 20th at 7:15 pm MST. Both teams are searching for their first win of the Season.
