Dutchgirls open 2022 with losses to Fatima, Helias

Posted

Ending 2021 with a tough loss to Steelville in the Peoples Bank Holiday Classic at Sullivan, Ryan Flanagan’s Owensville Dutchgirls looked open the 2022 portion of their season on a positive note.

Hosting Fatima’s Lady Comets last Thursday at Owensville Elementary School (OES), the Dutchgirls saw the injury bug bite them early in the junior varsity contest.

Dislocating her shoulder earlier in the season, freshman Brynn Wright saw her season come to an end after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and her meniscus in her knee.

Leading 29-21 after three quarters in JV action against Fatima, the Dutchgirls were outscored 13-2 in the final seven minutes before falling to the visiting JV Lady Comets 34-31.

Ali Daniels led the JV Dutchgirls scoring nine of her game-high 11 points in the first half.

Before suffering her season-ending knee injury, Wright scored six points in the first quarter.

Anya Binkhoelter finished with five points followed closely with three points from Camryn Caldwell who returned from a hand injury that sidelined her for three weeks.

Kiana Guerrero, Audrey Quilacio and Grace Abell each added two points for the JV Dutchgirls against Fatima.

Varsity action between the Dutchgirls and Lady Comets also saw OHS take a 36-32 lead into the fourth quarter.

Edged 15-9 in the final eight minutes, Owensville ended up on the short end of a 47-45 final score.

Leading 12-7 after one quarter, Emma Daniels paced the OHS offense with five first-quarter points.

Doubled up 12-6 in the second quarter by Fatima, OHS found themselves trailing 19-18 at halftime.

Anna Finley led the Dutchgirls with seven first-half points.

Falling just short of a victory to open the 2022 portion of their season, the Dutchgirls were led by Finley with 13 points.

Emma Daniels also reached double figures with 11 points.

Monday night against Helias (Jefferson City) at OHS, the host Dutchgirls fell 26-10 in a two-quarter JV game before being outscored 35-16 in the second half of their 58-40 loss in varsity action to the Lady Crusaders.

Cameron Nowack and Quilacio led the JV Dutchgirls with four points each while Caldwell netted 17 points in varsity action against the Lady Crusaders.
