Spartans Dethrone the Knights

Posted on: December 7, 2020

Wednesday night, the Spartans hit the road for an ECC match up against the Kings Knights. The ladies came into the match after falling at home to St. Ursula and were eager for a win. The match was closely contested throughout the entirety of the first half and ended with a score of 27-23 after Claire Klimkowski battled in the last thirty seconds for 4 points for the Spartans, including a layup just as the buzzer sounded. The second half was much like the first until the Spartans pulled away following two 8-0 runs, a lead they would hold until the end of the game. Cecelia Hilgefort bucketed 30 points and 11 rebounds, while Claire Klimkowski (8 points) and Rachel Reichard (7 points) also contributed to the scoring in the Spartans 55-49 victory over the Knights.

The Spartans are back on the court Monday, December 7th against Lebanon with tip-off set for 7:00 PM at Klinger Court.
