Lady Indians Best Brimley, Lose to Cheboygan


Brimley — The Lady Indians took a close first-half game and dominated the second half to bring home a 57—42 victory.

Brimley scored the first two buckets of the night and led the entire first quarter, taking a 16—14 margin into the second stanza.

The Bays also led for much of the second quarter until the last minute, when Katie Rahilly struck twice, followed by a bucket by Madison Grigg that put the Indians on top, 27—26, at the half.

The third quarter was all Newberry. The Indians went on a 17-point run before the Bays could score. Newberry ended up with an 18-point advantage, 48—30, by the start of the fourth quarter.

Adrian Depew led Newberry with 19 points. Rahilly was right behind with 18. Grigg added seven, Emily Smart five and Alexis Groenhout and Aly Cameron four each.

Kendra Carrick paced the Brimley team with 18 points. Olivia Wilcox and Ivory Maxwell both had six, while Julia Stenglein, Abigail LaRue and Kierra Perron had four.

Cheboygan — The Indians enjoyed a fantastic first four minutes of the game as they jumped out to an 11—3 lead, and then the switch was turned off as the Chiefs erased their deficit to tie the game at 14 by the time the first quarter ended.

Cheboygan climbed out of the shadow in the second quarter as Newberry’s scoring woes continued. The Chiefs led 26—17 at the half and 42—32 at the start of the fourth quarter.

That 10-point hole was too much to overcome, and the Indians fell 56—41.

Depew and Rahilly led Newberry with 13 points each. Tomica offered eight, Grigg three and Aly Cameron and Felicia Raymond two each.

Caitlyn Franz and Angie Swiderek led the Chiefs with 12 points each. Isabelle Buhr had 10, Keyana Gahn and Hailey Kujawa seven each, Cassie Barton six and Kathleen McNeight two.

Junior Varsity

Brimley — Newberry’s JVs jumped all over Brimley in the first eight minutes of play, leading 15—4 at the end of the quarter.

The Indians continued their dominance in the third quarter, taking a 28—14 halftime advantage and increasing it to 44—17 by the start of the fourth quarter.

Newberry gave up some of its lead in the final quarter, but Brimley had much more to overcome, losing 52—32.

Abby Smithson led a balanced attack with 12 points. Ambriah Ducsay scored 11, Harley Kroll 10, Brenna Pavey nine, Jen Dzelak six and Makayla Wolf and Sophy Smithson two each.

Victoria Aikens topped the Bays with 12 points.

Cheboygan — Early foul trouble put Cheboygan at the line too many times. Newberry committed 11 fouls in the first half alone and 26 on the night. Kroll and the Smithson twins fouled out of the game.

The score could have been worse. The Chiefs only made 16 out of 36 from the line. Newberry hit seven out of 22.

As it was the game was relatively close. Cheboygan held a one-point lead, 13— 12, going into the second half and a four-point advantage, 29—25, at the end of the third quarter. The Chiefs stayed ahead of the Indians in the fourth, winning 38—32.

Ducsay scored nine points, Dzelak seven, Kroll six, Pavey five, Sophy Smithson three and Makayla Wolf two.

McKenna Benson paced the Chiefs with 13.
