EM Downs Meridian, Falls To BDS

The Exeter-Milligan girls started off play last week with a 49-33 victory over state-rated Class D-1 Meridian, 49-33.  The road victory avenged a loss in this years' MUDECAS Tournament to the Mustangs.
Meridian led the contest 21-19 at intermission, but the second half belonged to the Timberwolves.  E-M owned the third quarter, 13-5, and the fourth, 17-7.  The Mustangs shot just 22 percent (13-for-59) and a very poor 9 percent (2-for-21) from beyond the 3-point arc.  The Timberwolves shot 31 percent (18-for-58) from the floor. E-M owned the glass 45-30.  E-M had 15 turnovers compared to eight by Meridian.
Tara Mueller scored 12 points and grabbed 16 rebounds for the winners.  Kate Jansky added 11 points and eight rebounds.  Kelsey Bigelow tossed in 10 points and Katherine White added eight.  Both Hannah Beethe and Anna Sluka scored four points in the big win.
On Friday, E-M hosted Bruning-Davenport/Shickley in a rematch of the MUDECAS Consolation Final.  The Timberwolves jumped on the Eagles early and led the contest 23-22 at halftime.  The game was tied 34-34 after three periods and again at the end of regulation at 40-all.  BDS prevailed in overtime 6-3.
White powered in 12 points for E-M and snagged 11 rebounds.  Beethe and Mueller both scored eight points and grabbed a dozen boards.  Sluka netted eight points and Jansky had seven. E-M shot just 22 percent (15-for-66) from the floor.
The 13-4 Timberwolves (No. 3 in wildcard points in Class D-2) are the top seed in the 2018 Crossroads Conference Basketball Tournament.  They start off play on Wednesday in York against McCool Junction.  The semi-finals are Thursday, with the finals Friday at 6:30 p.m.
