Fremont 59 Orchard View 13
With their captain Bre Harris on the sidelines and coming off a tough loss at Reed City the Packers took to their home court Tuesday evening on a mission.
The Cardinals had no answer for the swarming Fremont defense that didn’t allow the visiting offense to even breathe in the second half holding OV to just 3 points.
Calla Miller and Natalie Jamieson each snared 5 steals, but defense was only part of Jamieson’s game on the night. She proved to be a force on the glass pulling down a game high 14 boards while canning 15 points in the process. Miller help fill the offensive gap created by Harris’ injury by firing in a game high 18 points. Anna Patenge aalso reached double figures finishing with 10 points
“The girls played hard for their fallen teammate,” said Packer Coach John Krim. “ I was very proud of the effort.”
The Packers (4-2, 1-1) resume play on January 5th when they face conference rival Big Rapids at home.
