Indians defeat Decorah, Move to 5-0

The Waukon Indian girls basketball team hosted the Decorah Vikings on Tuesday December 4th and looked to continue their early season winning streak. Waukon jumped out to an early lead and finished the quarter with a 20-13 advantage. Waukon’s Daneshia Snitker, the state of Iowa leading scorer per game was hot in the early going pouring in 11 1st quarter points. The Vikings tried to counter by running another defender towards her at times, but the Tribe answered in a big way with Alyssa Collins. Collins started dominating the paint as she did not face many double teams and scored 5 baskets of her own in the 2nd period and the Indians 35-22 lead into the lockeroom at halftime.

The Indians had a solid game and seemed to be in a bit of a lull in the 3rd period as Decorah outscored them 15-13 and the Indians could not quite slam the door shut on the game until the combo of Kiersten Christianson and Alyssa Collins scored the first 6 points of the 4th period. Waukon finished the game with a 66-51 victory moving them to 3-0 in the NEIC and 5-0 overall.

Alyssa Collins dominated the inside and led the Indians with 24 points, 9 rebounds, and swatted an amazing 8 shots along with altering many many other attempts by the Vikings. Daneshia Snitker was great again as she poured in 22 points and ripped down 7 rebounds and swiped a pair of steals. Kiersten Christianson had 7 points and 5 assists and Abie Mellick scored 3 points, dished out a career high 6 assists and swiped 3 steals. Christianson and Mellick both had a great part in some nice post feeds helping Collins to her big night.

Waukon will host Spring Grove on Thursday night.
