Wood River works 
out the kinks

Wolverines topped twice in non-conference action

The Wood River girls’ basketball team is working out the kinks of its new run and gun style.

Hailey (1-2) suffered a pair of losses in non-conference action against Arco and Valley of Hazleton last week.

"We are getting into foul trouble, which allows three things," coach Brent Carnduff remarked.

"One, it hurts our rotation. Two, it allows the other team free shots. Three, it allows the other team to rest."

But it is nothing Carnduff did not expect when implementing the new system and he expects the dividends to be apparent soon.

"We can run and we can shoot. The girls play hard and we have a lot of kids that can score. We do that well. We just have to figure out how to play without fouling," he said.

Foul woes played a big part in Wood River’s 75-71 loss in overtime to Butte County of Arco last Wednesday.

Playing on their homecourt, the Pirates sunk 27-of-38 free throws and blocked a shot with six seconds remaining to defeat the Wolverines.

Hailey’s Natalie Green had a huge night with 30 points. Tiffany Wheeler scored 9 points. Emily Smith and Syringa Stark tallied 8 points apiece. Also—Kelly Haisley 5, Martina Clauss 4, Liz Rippon 3, Dawn Bird 2, Jessica King 2.

Wood River was stellar from the charity stripe, dropping in 17-of-21 attempts for an .809 average.

Two nights later at Valley, the Vikings rallied from a two-point deficit at halftime to win 67-51 and remain undefeated.

"We tried to slow things down in the third quarter and we lost our edge a little bit," Carnduff said.

Emily Smith scored 12 points. Haisley 8, Rippon 6, King 6, Wheeler 5, Green 4, Clauss 4, Stark 4, Alexa Alberdi 2,

Hailey played its first home game of the season against Dietrich last night, Tuesday, Nov. 26, and entertains Wendell on Dec. 3.
