Ready to roll! COMPARE...MILBANK FORD WILL NOT BE UNDERSOLD! The OHS Lady Trojans opened the new year by entertaining the C-G-B Wolverines last Tuesday night. The Trojans proved to be good hosts by absorbing a 48-37 loss to C-G-B. After falling behind by seven points at the first quarter break, the Trojans rallied in the second quarter to tie the game at 20 at the half. The third quarter proved to be the difference, as C-G-B outscored the Trojans 17 to seven and took the ten point lead which held up through the fourth quarter. The Trojans were led in scoring by Kelly Miller and Tiffany Finke with l l apiece. Heidi Wittnebel ted in rebounds with 11 boards. Wittnebel also scored six points. Finke and Amanda Hillman had seven rebounds each. The Trojans only shot 16 percent from the field. "Not many games are won with that kind of shooting percentage," said coach Connie Newman. The ladies traveled to Hancock last Friday night for a conference game against the Owls. The defending state champions proved to be too much for the Trojans, as they came away with a 82-53 victory. Hancock jumped to a 16-2 lead in the first quarter, and even though the Trojans would make a slight comeback, that deficit was too big a margin, which was 20 points at the half, to overcome. The Trojans managed to stay in the ball game in the second half, but the constant defensive pressure by the Owls was too much for Ortonville. The Trojans were led in scoring by Tiffany Finke with 14 points. Amanda Hillman had 12 points and seven rebounds. Heidi Wittnebel chipped in with ten points and six rebounds. Laura Lantis grabbed five boards. The Trojans improved their shooting, shooting 39 percent from the floor, but too many turnovers limited the total number of Trojan shots. s Toll Free For A Deal - 1-800-594-9409 "Working hard to earn your business.
