In a physical contest Saturday night, the Sully Buttes Charger girls pulled away in the second half to pick up a 58-38 win over Little Wound at the Warner Stratford Girls Classic.
The Chargers needed ball movement to get around the taller Lady Mustangs, and were helped by Rachel Guthmillers’ six three point shots. Guthmiller finished the night with 21 points. Marinda Archer had solid back-to-back games this weekend, and finished the night with 17 points, while Lauren Wittler added 13 points.
The Chargers had a cold night shooting from the free throw line, going 18 of 29. The Lady Mustangs shot only four free throws for the game, and were three of four from the line. Leading the way for Little Wound was junior Miracle Spotted Bear, who tallied 20 points.
With the win, the Chargers are now at 17-1 on the year, with two games left to play during the regular season. Both games are at home; Tuesday a girls/boys doubleheader against Sunshine Bible Academy, and Thursday another doubleheader against Faulkton Area.
Due to a scheduling conflict, the Tuesday game will not be aired, but the Thursday game against the Trojans will be on Country 95.3FM and pierrecountry.com.
