Osky GBB Knocks Off Burlington; Boys Fall to Washington

By Sam Parsons

The Oskaloosa girls basketball team hosted Burlington last night while the boys hit the road to face Washington in Tuesday night basketball which saw the Indians claim one victory.

The girls started well against Burlington, jumping out to a 13-6 advantage in the 1st quarter before the Grayhounds rallied back and closed the quarter on a 7-0 run to enter the 2nd quarter tied at 13-13. The 2nd quarter, however, was when the tide shifted dramatically toward the Indians. Led by Presley Blommers (21 points, 7 steals) and Dasia Foster (20 points, 15 rebounds), the Indians dominated both ends of the floor in the quarter to the tune of a 20-3 run. On the final play of the half, Burlington’s star freshman, Mylee Stiefel, went down with a right leg injury and was forced to miss the rest of the game.

In lieu of the Stiefel injury, the Indians took their 33-16 lead at halftime and sat on it the rest of the way. The Indians didn’t let the Grayhounds cut the deficit to less than 15 points at any time and walked away with a 63-40 win to improve their record to 3-2.

The boys, on the road at Washington, started strong with a 32-21 lead at halftime, but quickly saw that lead melt away in the 3rd quarter when Washington’s defense completely stymied Osky’s offense. Osky was held off the scoreboard for the entirety of the quarter, while the Demons put up 15 points to take a 36-32 lead entering the fourth quarter, and further distanced themselves from the Indians 18-11 in the fourth to finish the job and get the win 54-43. Osky fell to 0-4 on the season.

On Friday, Oskaloosa has a girls and boys doubleheader at home against DCG. You can hear that broadcast on KBOE with girls coverage beginning at 6pm.
