Kane falls just short to Bradford

The Wolves Den was rocking Wednesday as the 10-3 Kane Lady Wolves took on the 10-0 Bradford Lady Owls but fell short, 47-41.The crowd didn’t leave disappointed as both teams put it all on the line. It was a little sloppy at times but all in all it was a great high school game to watch.Bradford came out just as Kane thought with full court pressure and was able to get the Wolves on their heels to create turnovers. This led to some good opportunities at the other end. The second quarter proved to be big for the Bradford as Ali Rinfrette put on a shooting clinic as she connected on two 3-pointers and accounted for 12 of the 16 Owl points in the quarter. Little did anyone know that those six points would be the margin of victory. Bradford took a 29-23 lead into halftime.The second half was a reversal of quarters. The Lady Owls started to try to use the clock a little but that was just what the Lady Wolves needed and they were able to capitalize on it and took a 35-34 lead into the fourth quarter. Also, probably the biggest move of the night was when Kane head coach Dave Kiehl used a box and one on Rinfrette. Shannon Kocjancic and Angie Geer held her to only two points the entire second half.See full article by purchasing the Jan. 19 edition of The Kane Republican.
