Tigers have split results in Sioux Falls


December 18, 2019

Ipswich had mixed results versus Hitchcock-Tulare during a basketball classic at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls last Saurday. The Lady Tigers indeed dropped a 55-38 outcome after trailing 18-8, 25-18 and 40-25 with three quarters in the books.

The Patriots and all scorers for that matter were led by Dannyn Peterson with 23 points and Elizabeth Salmen also reached the double-figure scoring plateau with 12 counters. Only three other H-T players scored. The team shot 20-56 from the floor and included five treys. They were 10-18 in free throw attempts.

Ipswich countered with 18 points from Halle Heinz, including a trey. Next was Katie Bierman also in double-figures in the scorebook with 11 points. But further IHS scoring tapered off to five points from Bailey Pitz, also including Ipswich's remaining trey. And Chesney Olivier and Tessa Kilber scored a basket apiece to complete the effort.

Ipswich shot an overall 12-40 from the floor including the pair of treys and was 12-19 at the charity stripe. The Patriots countered with a 20-56 floor-shooting effort that included five treys and were 10-18 at the line.

Ipswich was narrowly out-rebounded 40-31, thanks in part to Peterson's double-double afternoon with 13 retrieves. The Lady Tigers, meanwhile, were led by Lindsey Grabowska with seven rebounds and she also contributed two blocks. Ipswich committed 27 turnovers and H-T 24. Thirteen of those were by steals, led by Heinz with four.

Now to that boys' game and defense was the name of the game! In more like a football score Ipswich dominated its Patriot counterparts 49-14. The IHS Tigers indeed blanked the Patriots 17-0 in the first quarter and didn't let up a whole lot after that. The Tigers led 31-8 at intermission and 41-10 with a quarter to play, as they won each individual quarter including the final eight-minute span.

It was a balanced scoring effort for the IHS boys, led by Ty Kadlec with 12 points, including two treys. Max Geditz was next with nine points with one trey, followed by Josh McQuarie with six points and Ethan Gilbert with five points that included Ipswich's other trey. (Will Kadlec also added five points for the Tigers.) Eric Severson added four points and Dillon Weig, Taylor Thorson, Matt Hettich and Tucker Green two points apiece. The Tigers helped enable all that with 17 assists, led by Gilbert and Ty Kadlec with three apiece.

Ipswich shot 21-42 from the floor and that included those four treys. The Tigers were just 3-13 at the line, though, which could have given them an even more impressive edge. Hitchcock-Tulare made only five of its 35 floor-shot tries with two of them treys and was 2-5 at the line.

Ipswich forged a narrow 30-29 rebounding lead, paced by McQuarie with five and the Tigers played an impressive floor game with only nine miscues; H-T, 21. The Tigers utilized 14 steals, led by Ty Kadlec's four.

The Ipswich varsity program was scheduled to host a girls/boys twinbill on December 17 vs. North Central. The boys are to play at Langford Area on December 19 and then host Webster on December 21. The girls, meanwhile, will play host to Langford on December 20, as well as Webster (along with their Tiger boys counterparts) on December 21.
