The Stark County Lady Rebels are in the toughest part of their schedule.

Last Wednesday night the girls went to Ananwan to face the defending state champions. Then on Monday night they faced a powerful Wethersfield team and on Wednesday they had the team that’s tied for second in the LTC with the Geese, Princeville.

Annawan held Stark County to just three points in the first quarter while scoring 27 points on their end of the court.

The flurry of scoring continued in each of the remaining quarters as well. The Bravettes, who were celebrating their 2017 state champions with a banner reveal, posted 77 total points for the 77-39 victory.

Stark County did bounce back a little from the first quarter and settled in with 11 points in the second quarter and 17 in the third. The Lady Rebels added eight more in the fourth quarter. Nine players entered the box score for Stark County, led by Kylee Lindley with 12 points and Abby Stotler with 10 points.

Monday night in Kewanee, Wethersfield limited the Lady Rebels even more so in the first quarter, allowing just a single basket from Lindley.

Again the Lady Rebels improved quarter-by-quarter, but could not keep up with the barrage of field goals from both inside and outside the arc by the Lady Geese.

Wethersfield enjoyed a 38-11 lead at the half and increased that to 56-23 after three quarters. In the end, Stark County fell 60-39. The Lady Rebels are now 6-11 overall.

The team hosted Princeville on Wednesday night. We have those results available online at LTC tournament play begins today and continues all next week in Aledo.
