An extremely slow start, foul trouble, and poor shooting dictated the game. Even though we scored 29 points in the fourth quarter it just wasn't enough. The Lady Trojans racked up 32 fouls sending the Minneota Vikings to the line 47 times. Coach Hoernemann points out, "The Vikings were successful on 28 of their attempts at the line. That is a game-winning statistic right there. On the other hand, the Trojans were 8 for 18 from the line." Lead scorers for the game were Jenna Longhenry with 9 (11 rebounds), Sarah LaVoi and Stacy Wiegman with 8 (4 and 5 rebounds respectively), Amy Smith with 4 (8 rebounds), Emily Sammon (6 rebounds) and Kelli Sis, 3 (3 rebounds) and Amy Speth, Lisa Spars (4 rebounds), and Amy Kellen with 2 points each. Despite the outstanding defense and hustle in the fourth quarter we dug ourselves too big of a hole early in the game to edge our way back to a victory, said Coach Hoernemann.

On Tuesday, Dec. 17 the Lad)' Trojans met the Blackjacks from Dawson on their home court looking for a little revenge for the earlier defeat. "We knew we had to defend junior guard, Rachel Bergland, who scored 33 points against us the first time we played. We also knew we needed to get the ball inside to our post players because we had a height advantage in our favor giving us an opportunity to put some points on the board," said Coach Hoernemann. At half time, Bergland had 10 points, and the Trojans were down by 9 (16-25). "We were feeling pretty good in the locker room. We just need- ed the ball to start falling through the hoop. We had plenty of looks inside, but the shots just weren't going in." "The third quarter really hurt us when the Blackjacks scored 18 points to our 9."
