Goessel girls lose first league game

Staff writer

The Goessel Bluebird girls basketball team traveled to Little River Friday. It took more than five minutes for the Bluebirds to score their first field goal. The Bluebirds only scored five points in the second quarter and saw the deficit at nine points at halftime. Karis Janzen and Kendra Flaming led an attack where the Goessel girls outscored the Redskins, 8-2, to get as close as 21-18.

At the 5 minute, 30 second mark in the fourth quarter, Goessel trailed 27-22, but Little River dominated the rest of game, finishing as winners, 36-24. Scoring for the Bluebirds was Flaming with 11, Janzen 6, Shanna Klassen 3, and Aspen Frey and Jennifer Van Horn with 2 each. The Goessel girls are now 4-1 in Heart of America League play and 7-3 overall.

The girls will have three games next week in the Berean Tournament.
