AREA GIRLS BASKETBALL: Mohawks edge No. 14 Twin Cedars in battle of unbeatens

BUSSEY — Moravia gave up just three points in the third quarter and held on late for a thrilling Bluegrass Conference win in matchup of unbeaten girls basketball teams at 14th-ranked (1A) Twin Cedars. Sabers’ senior Payton Fee missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of the Mohawks 48-45 Bluegrass Conference win.

Coming off a triple-double effort against Cardinal on Thursday, Katelynn Tracy dominated the paint for the Mohawks Friday. Tracy scored a team-high 18 points and grabbed an incredible 21 rebounds as Moravia rallied from an early eight-point deficit by outscoring Twin Cedars 15-3 in the third quarter.

“We weren’t really scared, but we played a little timid in the first half,” Mohawks head coach Clint Woodward said. “We came out and got the momentum in the third quarter. That was a big quarter of defense for us.”

Alee Hugen did everything to give Twin Cedars their ninth straight win of the season. Hugen scored a double-double of her own with 27 points, 13 rebounds and five steals as the Sabers scored 17 fourth-quarter points to close a nine-point deficit down to three.

Moravia (8-0, 4-0) is back in action today at home against Harmony. No. 14 (1A) Twin Cedars (8-1, 3-1) heads to Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont on Monday.

Reddetts hold off Chariton, 61-57

CENTERVILLE — Maddie Lange scored a game-high 20 points, exactly the same number the Centerville girls needed to hold off Chariton in the fourth quarter. The Reddetts matched the Chargers with a 20 points in the final eight minutes to hold on for a 61-57 South Central Conference win on Friday.

Lange led the Reddetts perimeter attack, nailing five of Centerville’s 10 3-pointers. Jess Demry added 13 points and four assists as the Reddetts overcame 19 missed free throws to hold on after Chariton pulled within two late in the contest.

“We played a little bit more zone then we have in the past and we hit some perimeter shots,” Centerville head coach Nic Belloma said. “We do need to work on our free thrown shooting, but overall it keeps us in the conference race.”

Miranda Davis led Chariton with 15 points while Kylie Bengston added 13, including the Chargers’ lone 3-pointer. Chariton (2-5, 1-2) is back in action today at Wayne while Centerville (3-8, 2-2) hosts Fort Madison on Monday night.
