Lady Cougars vault into Northwest Lead

    The Lady Cougars vaulted into a tie for first place in the Northwest Class 2-A with a pair of runaway wins this weekend. Friday at Shoshoni they started slow but a 24-0 run broke open the game for a 59-22 Wind River win. On Saturday at home in Pavillion, it was more of the same, with Wind River off to a slow start before pulling away from Greybull 64-38.

    The wins moved the Lady Cougars to 2-0 in league play, tied with the Lady Grizzlies of Rocky Mountain.

    Shoshoni fell 40-14 at Cowley on Saturday afternoon against Rocky to drop to 0-2 in the conference.

    Friday the Lady Blue played well early, trailing by just four points after one period and down only 21-16 at the half.

    The first-period highlights went to Shoshoni sophomore Brenna Metzler who hit a towering baseline 3-point shot as the buzzer sounded to end the opening period.

    Wind River’s full court, “CHAOS” style pressure limited the Lady Blue’s shots but they hung in anyway. The Lady Cougars couldn’t find the range despite repeated steals and open shots.
