Parsons girls fall to Pittsburg, remain winless

PITTSBURG — The Parsons Vikings will get five more cracks in the regular season to earn its first win after falling to the Pittsburg Purple Dragons 50-20 on Friday night.

The Vikings were held scoreless in the first quarter and went into halftime down 20-6. Parsons head coach Pat Schibi said after the game that size proved difficult to overcome against the home squad.

“I thought the girls battled hard in the first half defensively,” Schibi said. “But their size got to us. It caused us to pick up fouls. We just don’t have much to go to as far as height. But holding them to 20 points in the first half was impressive.” 

Ela Hendrickson led Pittsburg with 18 points, while Nakia Dodd paced Parsons with 12.

“We had trouble putting the ball in the hole tonight,” Schibi said. “But I thought our effort on defense was pretty good.” 

With the loss, the Vikings dropped to 0-14 overall and 0-7 in SEK League play. The Purple Dragons improved to 6-9 and 4-3 respectively.

Parsons returns home on Tuesday to face Coffeyville.

“We feel like it’s a winnable game,” Schibi said. “It was a close game over there. We’ve just got to block out and take care of the ball. It’s all the little things I keep preaching. When we put all of them together, we can be successful.”

Erie boys blow out Bluestem, girls win by two

ERIE — Erie boys and girls basketball teams swept Bluestem Friday night. The boys won 78-49. The girls won 42-40. 

In the boys game, Erie rolled out to a 22-14 lead after a quarter and never gave any ground. 

Mark Bogner scored 30 points to lead Erie, hitting six 3-pointers in the process. Matthew Vail scored 24 points, hitting three 3-pointers on the night. Dawson Lehman was in double figures as well with 11 points. 

“We wanted to come out very aggressive tonight on both ends of the floor, and I felt like for the most part we were able to achieve that,” Erie boys coach Nick Pfeifer said. 

“It took us a little time to settle in defensively, but when we did I thought we were able to control the game. Offensively, we got good looks by attacking off the bounce and getting the ball in the paint. From there we did a solid job of finding open shooters and getting to the offensive glass,” he said. 

Erie is now 12-3 overall and 3-1 in the league. In the JV game, Erie won 47-16. In the C-game, Bluestem won 28-25. 

 

IN THE GIRLS game, Erie defeated Bluestem 42-40. Heaven Ellis led all scorers for Erie with eight points. 

Coach Sindy Daniels said the Red Devils were down by 16 points once in the game. 

“The Lady Devils never gave up. When it seemed like everything was going for Bluestem and nothing was going right for us, they kept chipping away. We were down 16-28 at halftime and we had Molly LaForge and Maddie Kramer both in foul trouble in the first quarter with two fouls in less than 2 minutes into the game. We had our bench players step up and give us really good minutes tonight. I am very proud of their fight tonight. That just shows everyone that with hard work, determination and working together as a team, anything is possible,” Daniels said. 

Erie’s JV defeated Bluestem 37-21. Erie is 9-6 overall and 3-1 in the league.
