The Union Girls Basketball team won in convincing fashion over Wapsie Valley 60-23 on December 6. Union had a strong start in front of the home crowd and mounted a 28-13 halftime lead. Breann Bader lead the way with 13 points in the half while the Union defense created turnovers and limited Wapsie’s offensive looks.
The second half was more of the same, as the Knights’ defense held Wapsie scoreless in the third quarter and built a 44-13 lead heading to the fourth.
“We knew Wapsie played a lot of young kids last year and had the potential of being much better, so I’m happy with the focus and intensity our girls showed tonight. We cut our turnovers in half compared the opening game and got 22 steals which can help on the offensive end,” Head Coach Robert Driscol commented.
