Tue 11-24-2015

The 2-A #10 Okoboji Pioneers defeated 1-A #10 George-Little Rock in Milford on Tuesday night 66-46 to open up their season.  The Pioneers raced out to an early 12-4 lead and took a 21-14 lead after the first quarter.  G-LR would not get any closer the rest of the game as Okoboji outscored the Mustangs 20-8 in the 2nd quarter to build a 41-22 lead at the half.  G-LR played even with Okoboji in the 3rd quarter as the Pioneers lead 51-33 entering the final stanza.  Okoboji would build the lead to 26 points in the 4th quarter before ending up with the 20 point victory.  The Pioneer twin tours of Megan Peschong and Molly Mitchell were too much for the Mustangs to handle inside, as Mitchell had 22 points and 11 rebounds while Peschong added 14 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists.  Emily Wintz added 9 points and 3 assists, Cory Hoffman had 7 points with 5 assist and Kailye Hromatko chipped in with 6 points.  Okoboji will be back in action on Tuesday, December 1st at West Lyon.
