Indians Defeat Go-Hawks in First Conference Game of Season

Halvorson Scores 1000th career point as well

The Waukon Indians traveled to Waverly Shell Rock Friday night to take on the Go-Hawks in the first conference game of the season.  The Indians played a good defensive game for the most part and led just about the whole game.  All five starters scored in the first quarter including Mary Halvorson scoring her 1000th career point with 4:10 remaining in the first quarter.

The Indians were happy to take what they could get against the Go-Hawk defense and picked and choosed wisley for shots in the second half as they built their lead into the 20’s.  Waukon did not have a great nite offensively shooting only 40% from the floor and 9-22 from the FT line however it was more than enough as the Indians held Waverly to only 9 points in the second half, finishing the game with a 49-28 victory.

8 different Indians scored in the game, led by Mary Halvorson with 15 and team highs of 11 rebounds and 4 steals.  Kristyna Herman had a nice game and showed some agressiveness on the offensive end as well scoring 9 points and grabbing 4 boards.  Logan Hjerleid had 8 for Waukon. 

Others contributing nicely for the Indians were Jordon Reiser, Keri Egan, Tatum Meyer, Carissa Berger and Chelsey Dreckman all scoring between 2 and 4 points each.

Coach Klinge has notched his 935th career win, now needing only 4 wins to set the state of Iowa all time record for coaching victories.

Waukon will host Charles City next Tuesday and Oelwein next Friday.
