Scouts split games with Titans

Scouts split games with Titans

Lili Eickmeier

David City junior Lili Eickmeier lines up a 3 in a game earlier this year. Eickmeier and the Scouts defeated Twin River in Friday's Senior Night.

David City basketball split a boys and girls doubleheader with Twin River on Friday at home. 

The girls started the night with a 62-43 victory, but the boys fell 60-42. 

The girls were tied 11-11 before the Scotus allowed just 20 points over the next 16 minutes and pulled away with a 16-point lead. 

"It was Senior Night, so it was nice to recognize and start the senior girls that have put a lot of time and effort into the last four years of their high school careers," head coach Sam Schlautman said. "Twin River shot the ball very well from the perimeter, I thought the girls did a good job of adjusting to different defenses. Lauren (Vandenberg) and Maya (Couch) rebounded very well, especially on the offensive end. Lauren had several second-chance points for us. Twin River kept battling, and Payton Andel hit some big shots in the fourth quarter to help us pull away.

The boys shot 14 of 42 from the field and gave away 16 turnovers. 

"Cold shooting and giving up way too many offensive rebounds was the story of the game for us," head coach Aaron Carlson said. "When we find ourselves not hitting outside shots, we need to find ways to get the ball in the paint and attack the hoop. Twin River also had 18 second-chance points, which was a killer for us."
