Westhope-Newburg tops Stanley in girls hoops

Stanley – The Westhope-Newburg Sioux used a 33 point second half to top the Stanley Blue Jays 49-41 on Friday.

It was a tale of two halves for the Blue Jays, the first was good, the second not so much. Stanley was able to jump out to 27-16 lead in the first half. The Sioux flipped the script in the second half outscoring the Blue Jays 33-14.

Foul trouble was a factor for the Blue Jays in the third quarter and the Sioux took advantage to close the gap and take their first lead of the game.

Abby Iverson poured in a game high 29 points to lead all scorers.

The Blue Jays travel to Kenmare on Tuesday.
