"Gladstone had some intensity early, then cut our lead to two points in the third quarter," MSHS coach Ben Smith said. "But we were able to force some turnovers at the end of the third quarter and beginning of the fourth we turned into points.

"Nothing was easy. We got just enough stops to come out with a win."

The MSHS junior varsity team won, 64-43.

Gwinn 54,

Bark River-Harris 49

At Gwinn, Ellie Olsen and Jordyn Hutchens tossed in 16 points apiece to lead the Modeltowners to a nonconference win.

Bella Wedig added 17 rebounds for the Modeltowners (1-2).

"After playing Marquette and Gladstone, it was nice to play a team we could match up with," GHS head coach Ben Olsen said.

"We cut our turnovers in half and rebounded better. Wedig was a huge spark plug and everyone came together."

Caitlyn Frazer notched 18 points for BR-H (0-3).

"She gave us a lot of problems," Ben Olsen said. She's tough to defend."

BR-H won the junior varsity game, 47-26.

L'Anse 60,

Houghton 45

At Houghton, Purple Hornets' point guard Madi Swanson played a leading role, scoring 30 points in her team's WestPAC win.

"Houghton's been our hardest opponent since I can remember, and it's just awesome that we can beat them this year," Swanson said.

The Hornets broke out to a significant early lead, but Houghton fought through its early offensive struggles, going ahead with 3:08 to go in the first half.

Swanson, bound for Lake Superior State next year on a basketball scholarship, dictated the play for the last two-plus minutes to singlehandedly establish a 32-26 halftime lead, scoring on a jumper in the key, a three-pointer and two drives to the basket, the second of which put her over 1,000 career points, according to LHS statistics.

Houghton climbed back to within four, only for Swanson to extinguish the rally with back-to-back triples and a jumper from the left for a nearly insurmountable 50-38 lead after three quarters.

L'Anse (2-0, 1-0 WestPAC) travels to Jeffers Thursday night, while Houghton has more than a week to regroup before a Dec. 19 trip to Gwinn.

Dollar Bay 57,

Baraga 52

At Dollar Bay, a career night from Meagan Kangas helped Dollar Bay win its Copper Country Conference and home opener Tuesday night over Baraga.

The senior forward racked up 22 points in the Bays' 57-52 decision. Coach Steve Krahling said Kangas found openings in Baraga's zone defense.

"She was able to get inside and muscle her way into good lay-ups inside," he said.

Though the Bays (1-1, 1-0 CCC) led 26-19 at the half, they couldn't gain much more separation than that.

Baraga made its last gasp, closing within three with 22 seconds to play, but their attempt to get the ball back by fouling Julia Daavettila failed when the senior knocked down both ends of a one-and-one to ice the win and hit 20 points for the game.

The Bays overcome four Baraga players scoring in double figures. Melissa Putala led the way with 15, Gabby Mayo added 12 and both Audrey Barrett and Jenna Heikkinen had 10 apiece.

Baraga (0-2, 0-1) returns home Friday to face Ontonagon.

The Bays are idle for a week until a Dec. 17 home game vs. Jeffers.

Menominee 43,

Westwood 33

Westwood fell on Monday at Menominee in non-conference play.

Elizabeth Duphinais-VanBuren led the Patriots with 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field and a 5-of-5 night from the free throw line. She had a team-high six rebounds, as well, while Emily Carlson snared five.

Westwood trailed 23-20 at halftime.
