February 11,2020 – Slinger, WI – The girls’ basketball showdown happened at Slinger on Tuesday night. The two teams tied for first place at Slinger were the Slinger Lady Owls, coached by Tony Dobson and the West Bend West Lady Spartans, coached by Joe Pintens.
Both teams came into the game with 12 and 2 records. Unfortunately the Lady Owls fell pretty hard to the Lady Spartans with a final score of 57 to 33.
In a very physical game the Owls never had the lead and could never get closer than 12 points to the Spartans. Leading scorer for West Bend West was Maddie Baker with 24. Senior Anna Breuer had 13 for the Owls.
With only three games left in the regular season, Slinger will travel to Cedarburg Friday night and play their last home game next Tuesday against Grafton Blackhawks.
