Rockets Force 36 Turnovers in Win Over Hillcrest

By Craig Olson - Fergus Falls, MN

The Underwood Rockets forced 36 Hillcrest turnovers on Friday night as the lady Rockets improved to 5-1 with their fourth straight win, a 77-31 victory over the Comets in Fergus Falls.

"We took good care of the ball, played very good defense and did a lot of things we wanted to do tonight," said Underwood Head Coach Brian Hovland.

The Rockets made 32-of-67 (48%) of their field goal attempts and buried 9-of-13 free throws.

Brenna Tinjum scored a team high 17 points, added 5 steals, 3 assists and 2 rebounds to lead Underwood.  Sydney Hovland (12 points), Kayla Rocholl (13 points, 5 steals, 3 rebounds, 2 assists), Brooke Hovland (8 points, 3 steals), Corina Mark (8 points, 3 assists, 3 rebounds) and Morgan Evavold (8 points, 5 rebounds) all contributed to the win.

Leaders for Hillcrest were Mackenzie Foss (13 points, 4 assists), Augusta Ewan (7 points), Olivia Foss (5 points, 6 rebounds), Anna Rasmussen (4 points) and Molly McGuire (2 points).

"Our girls played hard against a tough, athletic Underwood team," said Hillcrest Head Coach Hannah Clark.  "Their defensive pressure got to us and we struggled to get into any kind of offensive flow."

Underwood will host Rothsay in a Little Eight Conference contest on Tuesday night, while Hillcrest swings back into action at Parkers Prairie on Tuesday night.
