Kenyon-Wanamingo Girls Basketball Edges Triton
Kenyon-Wanamingo senior Maddie McCauley banked in a put back basket with two seconds left to give her team a 56-54 win over the Triton Cobras in Dodge Center Friday night. McCauley didn't feel well in school and went home to take a nap.
It's a routine she might want to stick with because she had 13 points, 10 of them in the second half. Classmate Tess Hokanson led the Knight scoring with 14 points, 10 in the second half.
The Triton Cobras played a triangle and two to take the top two scorers for Kenyon-Wanamingo, Riley Dummer and Julianna Boyum out of the game. The sophomores still combined for 12 points.
Dummer had 5 points in the first half and Boyum 7 points in the second half. Sophomore Megan Mattson added 8 points including a huge three pointer late in the second half.
The game featured 13 lead changes and a lot of fouls. Kenyon-Wanamingo was 20 of 33 from the free throw line and Triton 12 of 16. The Cobras had two players foul out of the contest.
The game was huge in terms of section seedings with identical records going into the affair.
Our Held Bus Service Knights of the game were McCauley, Hokanson and junior Kasandra Keller. The 5'4 Keller grabbed a number of rebounds in the game and was 4 for 4 from the free throw line.
Kenyon-Wanamingo is now 4-13 and Triton 3-13. The Knights host Christian Life Academy Monday and Goodhue Friday with the Friday contest on KDHL Radio.
Triton has home games Tuesday and Friday with Schaeffer Academy and Cannon Falls and goes to Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton on Thursday.
