Sputtering Starts

Winfield High School senior Isabel Jellings is fouled by Towanda-Circle forward Mallory Cowman as Jellings drives into the lane in the fourth quarter Tuesday in Ollie Thomas Gymnasium.

A sluggish start isn’t conducive to the success of the Winfield High School girls basketball team.

One night after scoring just one first-quarter point in a loss at Buhler, the Lady Vikings were shut out in the first quarter Tuesday night in a 49-32 home loss to first-place and undefeated Towanda-Circle in AV-CTL D-III action in Ollie Thomas Gymnasium.

Circle led 11-0 after the first quarter and 20-9 at halftime.

Aleigha Gale buried a pair of fourth-quarter 3-pointers and led Winfield 1ith 10 points, all coming in the second half. Emily Randall and Camden Humphreys added seven points apiece for the Lady Vikings, who finished 4 of 9 from the foul line.

Kimalee Cook scored 10 of her game-high 13 points in the second half foe the Lady Thunderbirds (8-0, 4-0), who were 11 of 16 from the line.

Mallory Cowman added 10 points and Madi Michaelis went 4 of 4 from the line in an eight-point effort.
