Girls roundup: Calumet, Chassell, Jeffers, E-TC all win

L’ANSE — L’Anse went into halftime trailing Calumet by just two points, but the Copper Kings erupted for a 20-9 third quarter on the way to a 50-43 West-PAC victory Thursday in L’Anse.

“The key to the game was we didn’t shoot well and we turned the ball over,” L’Anse coach Scott Lloyd said. “Their ball pressure was too much in the third and fourth quarters, but other than that I felt like we were evenly matched.”

Calumet (6-6, 4-2) had three players in double-figures: Niina Anderson had 16 points, Amber Johnson added 12 and Lea Bjorn chipped in 11.

For L’Anse (3-8, 0-5) Sarah Dix scored 15 points and Josie Rice recorded 10.

Next up L’Anse travels to Ontonagon Saturday at 7:15 p.m. to make up a game previously scheduled for Jan. 22. Calumet hosts Lake Linden-Hubbell on Monday at 7:15 p.m.

BARAGA — Jeffers led Baraga by seven points at the end of the first quarter and slowly built the lead from there for a 48-36 Copper Mountain Conference win Thursday in Baraga.

“We just weren’t very good tonight,” Baraga (7-7, 7-4) coach Tom Goodreau said. “We failed to rebound the ball again and turned the ball over too much. We made a decent run in the third quarter but when Jeffers pushed back, we failed to respond. We didn’t guard their shooters as well as we normally do.”

Jeffers (9-6, 9-2) was led by Ivy Klemett with 13 points and Gracia Asiala added 10. For Baraga, Martina Jahfetson had 14 points.

Next up Jeffers (8-5, 9-2) hosts Wakefield-Marenisco on Thursday at 7:20 p.m. Baraga plays the same team on Monday.
