LE MARS — The Gehlen Catholic girls rolled to a 77-33 home-opening win over Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn Tuesday night to get away to a 2-0 start to the 2019-2020 season.  The Lady Jays used a pressing defense and a transition offense to rattle off 13 straight points to get the early upper hand and led 33-21 by halftime.  An 18-7 third quarter advantage helped Gehlen open a 23-point lead heading into the fourth quarter and the Lady Jays outscored the Hawks 26-5 in the final period to turn the game into a rout.  Addison Weber led the scoring attack with 20 points and Lauren Heying added 17.  Hannah Jochims had ten for H-M-S.

In the boys game, Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn rallied from a 19-point first half deficit to nip Gehlen 59-56.  The Jays were limited to 20% shooting in the second half as H-M-S outscored Gehlen 32-18 after halftime.  Gehlen’s Zach Kraft re-injured his shoulder in the second quarter and went to the sidelines for the rest of the game, allowing the Hawks to take over inside.  It’s feared Kraft may be done for the rest of the basketball season after injuring the same shoulder that cut his football season short.  Ethan Peters picked up the slack with 17 points for the Jays while Peyton Rochford added 13.  Freshman Keaton Bonderson had nine points by halftime but was held scoreless in the second half.  Lance Berends had 14 points off the bench for H-M-S.  Gehlen falls to 0-2 heading into Friday’s home girl/boy doubleheader with Trinity Christian.

SERGEANT BLUFF — Le Mars opened play in their new league Thursday night with a pair of close finishes against Sergeant Bluff-Luton.  The Le Mars girls ran their record to 2-0 for the season with a come-from-behind, 49-46 victory over the Warriors.  S-B-L built a 19-10 first half lead before the Lady  Bulldogs drew to within 25-22 at the half and took their first lead of the game with 3:20 to play in the third quarter at 31-29.  The two were tied 43-all with 1:57 to play in the game when Le Mars outscored the Warriors 6-3 to the finish.  Jaelynn Dreckman had 21 points to lead Le Mars with Shaniah Temple adding 10 and Karlee Schiff 9.  Kenzie Foley had 13 for S-B-L.  In the boys half of the Missouri River Conference doubleheader at Sergeant Bluff Thursday, the Sergeant Bluff-Luton Warriors earned a hard-fought, 45-42 victory over Le Mars in the season opener for both.  The Warriors opened the second half with an 11-2 run to extend a 27-26 halftime lead to a 38-28 advantage with 2:43 left in the third period.  Le Mars closed the gap to 43-42 on a bucket by Aisea Toki with 35.8 seconds to play but Deric Fitzgerald iced the victory with a pair of free throws with 14-seconds left.  Le Mars was unable to get a shot off in the closing seconds of the contest.  Spencer Mackey led all scorers with 20 points to lead the Bulldogs while Daniel Wright had 16 points for the Warriors and Fitzgerald added 12.  Le Mars hosts Council Bluffs A-L in their home opener next Tuesday.

Chicago 31, Dallas 24

CHICAGO (AP) — Dak Prescott’s late rally ran out of time, and the Dallas Cowboys dropped their third straight game with a 31-24 loss to the Chicago Bears. Prescott threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Amari Cooper in the fourth quarter, but Dallas lost for the seventh time in its last 10 games. The Cowboys still lead the disappointing NFC East by a half-game over Philadelphia, which hosts the last-place New York Giants on Monday night.

LE MARS — The Gehlen Catholic girls ran their record to 3-0 with a 60-26 romp over Trinity Christian Friday night at Gehlen’s Deb Campbell Memorial gym.  The Lady Jays responded to the Tigers closing to within 12 points 15 seconds into the second half with an 18-0 run over the next four minutes to take a 30-point lead with 2:56 to play in the third stanza.  Sydney Livermore led a balanced Gehlen scoring attack with 12 points.  Kate Hill had a career-best 11 and Lauren Heying had 10.  Alyssa Maassen had 6 to pace Trinity Christian(0-2).

The Gehlen boys completed an improbable comeback victory over Trinity Christian, 52-50, Friday night.  It was the first win for the Jays (1-2) after a pair of heartbreaking losses this week.   Freshman sensation, Keaton Bonderson capped a 29-point night with a pair of free throws with 12.9 seconds to play to erase a 50-49 deficit.  Another freshman, Keaton Logan, added a free throw with 1.7 seconds to play after the Tigers missed an attempt to regain the lead.  Bonderson scored 23 points after halftime following a nasty fall by teammate Ethan Peters under the Tigers basket.  Peters flipped into the air and somersaulted onto his head after getting his legs taken out from underneath him while battling for a rebound with two minutes to play in the first half.  The game was held up for about 15 to 20 minutes while he was immobilized and then taken off the court on a stretcher to Floyd Valley Healthcare.  The report after the game in the locker room from head coach Mike Langel was encouraging.  The injury didn’t seem to be too serious but there initially was concern as he lay motionless on the floor and apparently blacked out according to those that attended to him.  Gehlen travels to Unity Christian next Tuesday to open War Eagle Conference play.  The doubleheader will be carried on KLEM.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – Franz Wagner led a balanced scoring effort for No. 4 Michigan with 18 points, and the Wolverines opened Big Ten play with a 103-91 victory over Iowa. Michigan overcame 44 points by Iowa’s Luka Garza and rebounded from its 58-43 loss to top-ranked Louisville on Tuesday night. In fact, Michigan exceeded its point total from Tuesday before halftime. Garza scored 27 points in the first half, including 15 of Iowa’s first 17, but it was the defensive end that prevented the Hawkeyes from winning this one. Garza scored the most points by an opposing player at Michigan’s Crisler Center.
