    On Saturday, January 13, the Nemaha Central Middle School Thunder girls participated in a B-Team tournament at the NC Thunder high school gym. The NC team had 14 girls suited up for the tournament. The first team the Thunder girls played was Valley Heights. The game started off well with NC scoring 6 points in the first quarter, while Valley Heights trailed behind with only 2 points. The second quarter was full of excitement including Elli Rusche sinking a three. By halftime, the Thunder girls kept their lead, 14 to 4. After an inspirational halftime talk, the girls were prepared to hold their lead and get a win. The second half was exciting with NC winning, 26 to 16. Now that NC had won their first game they would take on Washington for the championship game.


    “It was a good learning experience and we can take a lot out of it,” said Lilly Schultejans.

    The next game of the day was against Washington for the championship. The NC girls scored 8 points in the first quarter, while Washington only had 2 points. The Washington girls caught up making the game close at halftime, but the Thunder girls were still up 12 to 10. The game became even closer in the third quarter when Washington scored 3 points and the NC girls scored only 2 points. With only a 1 point NC lead, both teams were anxious for the fourth quarter.  The NC Thunder girls were fired up and had a good offensive quarter scoring 8 points and holding the Tigers to only 4.  The NC Thunder team ended up winning the game 22 to 17.


    “It was really fun to be able to play a couple of teams that we don’t usually play and we were even able to get first in the end,” said Katelynn Scott.


    With the win, the B-team girls gained a lot of confidence after struggling throughout the season to win games.  What an accomplishment for the NC girls!
