Pirates lose to Glarner Knights

NEW GLARUS — Junior guard Jaylynn Benson scored 25 points as New Glarus defeated Waterloo’s girls basketball team 57-44 in a Capitol South game on Friday.

Waterloo (9-11, 0-9 in conference) led 23-8 to start the game before New Glarus (10-10, 4-5) closed the half on a 21-4 run.

“We were handling their press,” Waterloo girls basketball coach Gabe Haberkorn said. “Then we made some mistakes during a five minute stretch with some turnovers and we weren’t converting. The wheels kind of fell off and they took the lead. We just couldn’t stay with it. We couldn’t keep composure.”

Junior guard Skyler Powers led the Pirates with 18 points. Freshman guard Sophia Schneider had 10 points and five assists. Junior forward Brooke Mosher scored nine points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Junior forward Joslyn Wolff had six rebounds and three blocks.

“It was a five-point game late, and we had to foul,” Haberkorn said. “They made free throws (18-of-29) and we didn’t (7-of-16). At one point, they had a four-point lead, and we missed four straight front ends on one-and-one’s.”
