OHS girls take the win over Mark LindqUiSt nominated as Montevideo in close game Ortonv,lle'sOYA The Ortonville lady Trojans hosted a big, aggressive Montevideo Thunderhawk team on Tuesday night and came away with a hard-fought 55-49 victory. Montevideo was up 15-12 at the end of one quarter; a quarter in which the lead changed hands several times. The Thunderhawks broke quickly to start the second quarter and moved up by as much as nine points before the lady Trojans rallied and went ahead by one on a Heidi Wittnebel bucket at the buzzer 30-29. The third quarter had Montevideo outscoring the Trojans 12-9 to lead after three quarters 41-39. The fourth quarter proved to be the difference as the Trojans outscored Montevideo 16-8 for the victory. The lady Trojans had real trouble with the Montevideo 6' 1" center as she scored 17 points. All but four of those, however, were in the first half. It was a team effort controlling her in the second half, but the brunt of the effort went to Laura Lantis and Amanda Hillman. Ortonville was led by Wittnebel with 20 points, 13 boards and three steals. Tiffany Finke followed with 17 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals. Tiffany Radermacher set up the offense and chipped in with seven points and four rebounds. Margo Reiffenberger helped the defense and scored six points, with three assists and two steals. Ruth Goergen, Elizabeth Thompson and Jenni Bowen came in and gave valuable minutes as the starters rested. Hillman had five boards and hit two huge free throws. Lantis had a strong defensive effort and hit a big third quarter bucket. The B-squad and ninth grade teams both played close games, with the B-squad losing to Monte in a close 24-23 game, and the ninth grade also falling 35-24.
