Erin Laursen scored six, Audrey Winterhof five, and Amber Loucks four for Coach Tim Galvin's young team, which has but a single win on the season.

Bulldog rebounders were led by Shaina Thevenin, who took eight caroms off the glass. Glawe and Kayla Bruns each had six boards. Thevenin also had five steals.

Aurelia boys coach Grant Peckenschneider said his team "played a solid game on defense. We were up by nine, and Schaller went on a 9-0 run to tie it in the mid- third quarter, but we hit some big threes in the third to get a little momentum back."

Senior Aaron Bruce "played a solid game al night," according to his coach. Bruce led the Bulldog scorers with 24 points. Peckenschneider was also very pleased with the play of Nick Hirschman, who he said "took a step forward tonight. He attacked the bucket and had 15 rebounds. Hopefully that gives him more confidence down the stretch. Glad to see him rebound like that."

Hirschman also scored seven points, and Camrin Meyer had a double-double, with 10 points and 10 boards, and also had three steals and blocked three shots.

Coach Peckenschneider said, "We are trying to click a little going into the tournament. We have some decent players, and if we put an entire game together, we could make a little noise in the post-season."
