    The Nemaha Central Lady Thunder basketball team traveled to Hiawatha, the home of the Redhawks, on Monday, October 22. The night began with the 8th grade A-Team at the middle school and the 7th grade A-team at the Armory building.  The game started off with Ella Larkin tipping off. The Hiawatha team won the tip and the game was underway. The Lady Thunder team was off to a good start and found themselves up 10-6 at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Hiawatha team played hard but they only scored three points. However, the Lady Thunder team scored eight points and finished the quarter with 18  points, while Hiawatha had only 9. At halftime, the Lady Thunder team went to discuss what they were going to work on in the second half of the game.

    In the second half, the girls returned to the court all fired up and ready to play some more basketball.  In the third quarter, the Lady Thunder team had let down and only scored 4 points, while Hiawatha added 11 points closing in on the Thunder lead, 22-20. In the fourth quarter, the Lady Thunder team was able to hang on to their lead as they added 6 more points to their score, while Hiawatha only scored 2. The final score was 28-22, with the Thunder team getting the victory. Because this was such a close game, the A-team was excited to get the win.

    Jillian Stueve said, “We played well as a team and we had a great time.”

    The 7th grade A-team started out a little slower but still led in the first quarter 4-2. In the second quarter, the Lady Thunder team got their offense going scoring 11 points and holding Hiawatha to 4 points with their defense.  The halftime score was 15-6 with the Thunder out in front.

    The third quarter came around and Hiawatha was held scoreless in the quarter, while the Thunder team added 6 points to their score. Everyone was working hard, and things were going smoothly for the Thunder team. The last quarter was here, and the Lady Thunder team continued their success by adding 4 points to their score and holding Hiawatha to 2 points. The final score was 25-8, another good win for NC.

   Due to the number of girls that Hiawatha had out for basketball, the final game of the night was a combined team of the 7th-grade B-team and the 8th grade. This combination was a little difficult to get everyone on the same page. The Hiawatha team had an explosive first quarter and was leading the Thunder team 10-5. In the second quarter, the Lady Thunder scored 9 while Hiawatha only scored 4 points which led to a halftime tie of 14-14. The NC girls went to the locker room to talk some strategy.

    The strategies discussed were not working in the third quarter as Hiawatha added 6 points to their score and the Thunder team was unable to score.  At the end of the third quarter, the score was 20-14 with Hiawatha pulling away.  In the fourth quarter, the Thunder girls tried to get back into the game, but they came up short scoring only 4 points while Hiawatha scored 7.  The final score ended up 27-18 with the Thunder team taking the loss.  

    "I thought that it was fun because we played with the eighth graders," said  Samantha Holthaus.
