BREAKING: Bay draws first blood in crosstown rivalry

December 07, 2010 | 08:36 PM
Williams Bay -- While Stephanie Tadje is undoubtedly the senior leader for the Williams Bay girls basketball squad, it was two sophomores who led the Bulldogs to victory Tuesday night.

In front of a raucous crowd at Faith Christian School, the Lady 'Dogs finished the game on a 14-7 run over the last quarter and a half to steal a 22-18 win.

The Bay improved to 2-1 overall with the win, and Faith dropped to 0-2.

Faith clung to an 18-17 lead late after establishing a 15-8 advantage in the second quarter.

But sophomore Josie Bauscher worked hard in the paint with around 2:30 left in the game. She grabbed a rebound, missed the put-back, got her own miss and laid the ball in for the Bay's first lead, 19-18, since early in the second quarter.

Then it was sophomore guard Claire Canda's turn. She knocked down three of four free throws to ice the win in the final minutes. Canda was able to push the ball down the court after Faith misses and go strong to the rim.

With less than a minute remaining and down 21-18, Faith had a chance to tie but two long triples just missed their marks.

Tadje led the Bulldogs with 11 points, while freshman Alida Knudtson paced the Eagles with 11. Canda added six for the winners.

The Bulldogs boys squad will take on Faith Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Faith Christian School. A fundraiser is being held to help fight cancer. Attendees are encouraged to wear gray clothing for a "Gray Out."

Gray T-shirts will be available for $10 with the slogan, "One Game, One Cause, One Community."
