Joliet’s girls were sitting on a 3-5 overall record on the season before they faced Roundup and Red Lodge last week. They had a chance to get to .500 on the season and it looked good, at first.
J-Hawks Tayler Wright, 12, Shayla Webber, 11, and Danni Lynn Nardinger, 12, all had double-digits in scoring to lead Joliet to an impressive six-point victory over roundup with a 41-35 win.
“The girls had a slow first quarter,” said coach John Nelson. “We responded very well after that. Overall it was a great conference win.”
The girls got 11 points at the free-throw line where they went 11-15 for the game and held Roundup to single-digit scoring in the last three quarters after giving up 15 in the first.
They took care of the ball, only having 11 turnovers and got good looks and knocked down smart shots to take the game.

In what started out as a very close game, sharply turned into a disaster for Joliet in their 32-point loss to Red Lodge.
The first two quarters were decided by just a few points. Joliet trailed 9-10 at the end of the first quarter and were only outscored by three in the second. They entered the locker rooms at the half with the score at 17-21 and what was looking like a very close game and possible win for the girls.
“The second half did not go our way at all,” said coach Hansen. “We continued to shoot poorly and Red Lodge shot very well. They are a very talented team and their pressure caused us lots of problems in the second half.”
No J-Hawk could seem to find any sort of offensive rhythm. Tayler Wright had eight for the game and Danni Nordinger and Holly Nowak each had six, and that was about it.
Nelson’s girls gave up almost 30 points in the third quarter and only scored two in the final period to balloon the Panthers score to 62 points and the embarrassing loss. The Lady J-Hawks moved to 4-6 on the season.
They had almost a week to practice and gather themselves before their next match up with Huntley Project, away, this Friday, at 6 p.m.
