POMEROY - The Alta-Aurelia girls returned to the basketball court here on Thursday for a non-conference match-up against Pocahontas Area/Pomeroy-Palmer.
The Warriors got off to a 13-10 first quarter lead in their first post-Christmas game, but they were outscored 18-8 in the second quarter to trail 28-21 at the break. The Warriors put together a nice second half, though. Sparked by an intense defensive effort, A-A was aggressive on both ends of the court and turned the game around, taking a 10-point lead after three quarters on the way to a 59-41 win.
The Warriors were led by point guard Jordan Henningsen, who scored 23 points, including 9-of-9 from the charity stripe, and added six steals and nine assists. Emily Grieme scored 12 points for the Warriors and also led the team on the boards with seven rebounds. Courtney Van Haaften and Meghan Glawe each had six rebounds for A-A and Glawe also scored six points.
No information was available for the Indians.
The Warriors (5-3) host Sioux Central in Alta Tuesday, and Thursday travel to Correctionville to battle River Valley.
