"This was a nice way to start the new year with a team win," said coach Dale Henrich.

The Tigers owned a 15-point lead at halftime before the Bulldogs chewed down the Tiger advantage to just three points with 12 minutes remaining. The Tigers then called a timeout and two minutes later they were up by 17.

MaKenzie Smith scored 18 points and Katie Holzheimer added 16 more after missing a month with an ankle injury.

Beth Holland chipped in another 12 points for the Tigers. Beth and her sister Becca, the two smallest players on the roster, combined for nine rebounds, Abbie Olson dished out a game-high five assists, and Smith added five steals and four assists.

Paynesville was led by Kayla Schaefer's 18 points, Erika Schlangen's 13 points, and Rachel Rittenhouse's 10 rebounds.
