BRAINERD, KANSAS – The season hasn’t been what the Berean Lady Warriors have expected. Some preseason expectations haven’t been met and they took some of the frustration out on the Remington Lady Broncos 52-27 on Tuesday night.
“I thought we played well tonight, especially in the first half,” Berean Academy head coach Kristin Wiebe said.
Berean improves to 9-5 on the season. Remington drops to 1-9 and now has lost six straight games.
Five losses to three teams, including two to the Class 2A defending champion and undefeated Sterling Black Bears.
“I tell them sometimes a loss is a win,” Wiebe said. “Tonight, we won but I feel good about those losses we’ve had.
A strong first half saw the Lady Warriors jump out to 37-11 halftime lead. On by an 18-5 second quarter for Berean. Senior Brooke Wiebe had seven points in the quarter as five different players found the scorebook heading into halftime.
It wasn’t all lost for Remington. They outscored the Lady Warriors 16-15 in the second half; including holding Berean to only two points in the fourth quarter.
Abbie Entz and Cassi Wedel were big reasons why the Lady Broncos were able to limit Berean. They each scored four points in the second half. Lucy Entz contributed four of her six in the fourth quarter.
“There’s a lot we can do better,” Wiebe said. “We’ll just have to get better from here.”
Brooke Wiebe led Lady Warriors with 11 points and Miranda Wiebe had eight points. As did Courtney Slabach.
For Remington, three different players scored at least six points. They had six different players get into the scorebook on the night.
