The Sidney Cowgirls improved to 8-4 on the season as Maddy Duncan had 27 points, eight rebounds, and six steals in a win against South Page, 68-29, on Tuesday, Jan. 9 at the Sidney High School Gymnasium.
Sidney played tough defense all game as they held South Page to four points for the whole second half.  Offensively, the Cowgirls shot 41 percent from the field.
Head coach Amy McClintock said her team shot well, but, at the beginning of the game, felt Sidney got off to a slow start on the defensive side before they switched up the game plan.  
“Once we made a change, our defensive effort picked up,” McClintock said.
Other Cowgirls in the scoring were Caitlyn Ward, 16; Camryn McClintock, 10; Liz Lang, seven; Danica Laumann and Olivia Larsen, three each; and Jolie Sheldon, two.
McClintock, Duncan, and Laumann pulled in eight rebounds each and Ward had seven.
Larsen contributed seven assists and six steals.
Coach McClintock was pleased with how the team played and said it was a positive that the Cowgirls were able to get everyone involved.
“We were missing a couple of post players due to illness and I thought some of the other girls came in and did a nice job.”
The coach mentioned that Liz Lang had done a nice job for the Cowgirls in the past few games and that Presley Brumbaugh stepped up and played well defensively.
“Overall, I’m happy with the win,” said McClintock.
