Goodhue has been a bit up and down this month but had the leadership and resiliency to take care of business Tuesday at home against Lourdes, winning 68-53.
The Wildcats held a slim four-point lead at halftime, a lead that would vanish with seven minutes left in the second half as the Eagles went up by four. Goodhue had all the answers from that point forward though and cruised to a 15-point victory.
“Incredible performance by our team today, and everything we needed after a disappointing loss last Thursday at home to Cotter,” Goodhue head girls’ basketball coach Josh Wieme said. “The energy was amazing. Our depth showed and our seniors stepped up and really led us to victory.”
Goodhue went 10-for-18 at the free-throw line and converted on six 3-pointers. Individually, Arianna Thomforde led the team with 17 points, followed by Elissa Lodermeier (14), Anika Schafer (12), Elisabeth Gadient (8) and Joslyn Carlson (6). Hannah Gadient and Torrie Rehder tied for the team lead with five rebounds apiece.
Goodhue, 7-3, is next scheduled to travel to Kasson-Mantorville on Friday.
