Lady Cats Use Final Minutes to Secure Win

Axtell’s girls never trailed but the outcome wasn’t certain until the final three minutes as the Cats knocked off Lawrence-Nelson 46-36 in Axtell on January 14. Axtell moved to 5-7.

Kassidy Halvorsen scored the Cats’ first six points, then Lexie Eckhoff, the object of L-N’s defensive attention the entire game, got going with seven and Megan Kindschuh scored five in the opening period, two of them on a bucket with one second remaining. Just a few seconds before that Eckhoff had completed a traditional three-point play.

The second quarter was mostly back-and-forth, scoring wise, and Axtell went to intermission ahead 27-21. Eckhoff tallied five in the period.
