Osage takes down Eugene and Versailles falls to Cole Camp
Osage earns fifth straight win in battle with Eugene
School of the Osage made it five straight wins after taking down Eugene Thursday night 61-41.
Osage jumped out to a 21-6 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. The defensive effort may have had something to do with that.
"The girls really came out focused in this game and imposed their will on Eugene," Osage coach Scott Rowland said. "Our press seemed to slow down and bother Eugene into turnovers and tough shots."
Kerrigan Gamm led Osage with 22 points, Carson Wood added 19, Payton Good knocked down 11 and Sara Wolf recorded seven respectively. Wood also finished with a team-leading eight steals to go with six rebounds and assists.
"I was very pleased with this game. Eugene is a good team with a solid point guard and a 6-foot-1 post that can score," Rowland added. "We had two girls get their season high in points, but I was also pleased with the solid play of Payton as she scored in every quarter. It was a good effort one through seven as Zoie Kinder and Karli Wolf contributed good minutes off the bench and both Sara and Liberty Gamm were strong."
Osage (5-1) visits Camdenton on Monday at 4:30 p.m.
Versailles falls to Cole Camp
Versailles welcomed Cole Camp Thursday night and it was a tough night for the Tigers as they fell 58-28. Versailles (0-7) hosts Eugene on Monday at 6 p.m.
