The Lady Bengals of Clay Center Community Middle School traveled to Abilene Tuesday, Nov. 16 and came away with a decisive win led by Savanah Bloomdahl who sunk 18 points in the 34-17 contest. 

The rest of the “A” team scoring was balanced as Kylie Pfizenmaier added six and Boston Craig had four. Contributing three apiece were Braylee Langvardt and Miley McGee.

Langvardt had a great night on the boards, pulling down 11 rebounds while Bloomdahl grabbed seven. Leading the team in steals were McGee, five; Craig, four; and Brenna Long, three. Craig added two assists to her stats. 

“We took care of business today. Despite too many unforced errors, this was our most consistent offensive effort of the season,” said Head Coach Dick Ahlberg.

The “B” team squeaked by with an 18-16 victory over their hosts. 

Assistant Coach Traci McDonald said, “It wasn’t pretty today, but we held on for the win. And on the road, that’s a good thing.”

The Lady Bengals outscored Abilene 10-2 in the second quarter for the difference in the game due to cold shooting the last half.

Pfizenmaier had the hot hand with 10 points, while Aubrey Tadtman added four, and Long and Kelly Martin each had two. Pulling down four boards apiece were Langvardt and Pfizenmaier, while Tadtman had three. Steal leaders were Long with four, and Pfizenmaier at three.
