Hamlin beats Sioux Valley

Sean Welsh/Register Sioux Valley’s Ashley Bjerke goes up for a layup during the fourth quarter of the Cossacks’ 56-18 Lake Central Conference loss to Hamlin on Tuesday in Volga.

VOLGA – Undefeated Hamlin held Sioux Valley without a field goal for nearly 19 minutes to start the game during a 56-18 Lake Central Conference victory Tuesday night.

The Chargers led 17-2 after a quarter and 44-5 at halftime.

The Cossacks went 3-of-31 (9.7 percent) from the floor and 12-of-19 at the free-throw line.

“Well, we got outplayed in every facet of the game by a team that was bigger, stronger, faster; more basketball skill; got out-coached,” said Sioux Valley coach Jamie Granum. “I don’t know what more to say than that. That’s a team that starts five and they play year-round basketball and our year-round player (Miakken Vincent) is getting her ACL fixed today. Our thoughts are with her again.

“This is a group we have here that continues to come to practice and work hard. If there can be a small motivator out of this to get playing more – this is a game about time spent, and the more time you spend in the game the better you get.

“We’ll be back. We have some tough games here in a row and we’ll be back. It’s a fun group to be around.”

Hamlin’s Brynn Alfson (15) and Cami Stevenson (14) combined for 29 points on 11-of-19 shooting.

Perri Liedtke and Ashley Bjerke both had five points for Sioux Valley.

Liedtke dropped in a layup and was fouled at the 5:02 mark of the third quarter for the Cossacks’ first basket.

Sioux Valley (3-5, 0-2 LCC) takes on McCook Central/Montrose on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in Salem. Hamlin (7-0, 3-0) takes on Hills-Beaver Creek, Minn., in the Mustang Seeds/DSU Shootout on Saturday in Madison.
