ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

LONE TREE

Lone Tree used a stifling defense and the three-point shot to beat Iowa Valley 41-26 on Thursday. The Lady Lions struggled from inside the arc, hitting just eight of 35 shots. Lone Tree scored over half of its points from long range, led by Ashley Musser who made 3-4 from deep, and Riley Warson who was 3-6.

“We did shoot the ball better against Iowa Valley, and we needed to,” coach Jonathan Harshman said. “They forced us to take some threes and we had Riley Warson and Ashley Musser both step up and make three apiece. That was good to see because a lot of teams have challenged us to make perimeter shots and we have struggled in that department to date.”

Lone Tree shut out Iowa Valley in the first quarter and took a 10-0 lead. Maddie Forbes scored 11 points and had four steals for the Lady Lions who led 29-12 after three quarters of play. Elena Sieverding had four points, four assists and four steals. Liz Dodson had six points and two assists. Lone Tree created second chance opportunities with 16 offensive rebounds, led by Forbes and Maryssa Grover, who each had four on the offensive end and six total. Emily Feldman had four steals for the Lady Lions who finished with 17 total.

LONE TREE

The Lady Lions beat Louisa-Muscatine 44-36 on Friday to improve to 11-2 for the season.

Maddie Forbes led the Lady Lions with 22 points.

“We played pretty well defensively for most of the game until we had some break downs late and L-M made some difficult shots,” coach Jonathan Harshman said.

Lone Tree outscored the Falcons 18-7 in the third quarter.

“We played a very good third quarter after a slow start, which has certainly become a trend for us,” Harshman said. “However, that third quarter was very good on both ends of the floor.

“The fourth quarter we got bogged down offensively with some missed layups, missed free throws and a couple of turnovers. We were fortunate to make enough plays to secure the win.”

Elena Sieverding scored 12 points for Lone Tree and Liz Dodson added six.

The Lady Lions travel to Pekin on Tuesday. The Lady Panthers have won six in a row after a 3-3 start. Lone Tree hosts Mediapolis on Friday. Mediapolis lost its first conference game on Friday, 69-61 at Pekin.
