Hillman Girls Roll to Victory Over Posen
POSEN, MI- You had everything you needed for a great high school basketball game. You had the divisions two top teams, you had the divisions two best players and you had a packed gym anticipating a battle. Then the Hillman Tigers got rolling.
They got rolling and they never stopped, establishing themselves as the clear team to beat in the North Star League as they dominated the Posen Lady Vikings in a 62-25 win.
Hillman was relentless on defense as they forced the Vikings into double digit turnovers in the first half as the Vikings had no answer for the Tiger full court pressure. On offense it was a balanced attack as Nicole Barbeau and Hannah Crane each scored 14 points. Saige Flaugher added 11 and ran the show on offense and pressured the Posen guards all night in the back court.
The Posen offense just never got going. Ella Szatkowski was the lone Viking in double digits as she scored 13, but the 1,000 point scorer faced relentless pressure from the Tiger defense and was forced away from the basket a majority of the night.
Overall, it was a much different game than the 54-47 battle the two teams had just 24 days ago, which also resulted in a Tiger win.
