FRIDAY RESULTS – January 24

COUNCIL BLUFFS — The Le Mars Bulldogs made their first of two Council Bluffs trips over the next two Friday nights, taking on Abraham Lincoln in Missouri River Activities Conference play.  The Lynx play the best defense of any of the league teams and it showed Friday night as A-L won the girls game 43-26 and claimed a 58-48 victory in the boys game.  The Le Mars girls were held to their lowest offensive output of the season and only two starters scored 22 of those 26 points.  Jaelynn Dreckman had 12 points and Shaniah Temple 10.  Kady Leusink and Maggie Allen had two each in the fourth quarter.  Yet the Lady Bulldogs battled to within 18-13 early in the third quarter before a 10-0 run by the Lynx put the game out of reach.  Jillian Dix had 15 for A-L and Lucy Turner 10.  The loss was the fifth straight for Le Mars, who slipped to 5-9 for the season and 3-6 in the M-R-A-C.  No. 15 (5A) Council Bluffs Abe Lincoln remained tied with Bishop Heelan for the league lead at 8-1 and the Lady Lynx are 11-3 for the season.

The Le Mars boys saw their eight-game winning streak end at the hands of the front-runner in the Missouri River Activities Conference.  A-L’s top scorer, Josh Dix, ran off seven straight points in the fourth quarter to extend a six-point lead and the Bulldogs never recovered.  Dix finished with a game-high 24 points while defending the Bulldogs top scorer, Spencer Mackey, and holding him without points for the night.  Aisea Toki led the Bulldogs with 15 while Alec Dreckman and Jaxon Baumgartner dropped in 11 each.  Le Mars falls to 9-4 for the season and 5-3 in league play.  The Bulldogs host Bishop Heelan Tuesday before returning to Council Bluffs next Friday to play Thomas Jefferson high school.

HARTLEY — Gehlen Catholic traveled to Hartley Friday night for a War Eagle Conference match-up with Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn.  The Gehlen Catholic girls had beaten H-M-S by 44 points back in the December in Le Mars but the Hawks turned the tables on the Lady Jays with a 55-52 W-E-C win Friday night.  The Lady Jays leading scorers, Addison Weber and Lauren Heying, were checked to a combined 15 points — 8 by Heying and 7 for Weber.  Kate Hill had a career high 21 to keep Gehlen in the game.  The Hawks rallied from a nine-point deficit early in the fourth quarter to secure their biggest win of the season.  Jasmine Lux led a balanced scoring attack for the Hawks with 15 points while Hannah Joachims added 13, with 11 coming after halftime.  Lydia Harders also had 11 points for H-M-S.  Gehlen falls to 8-6 for the season and 3-3 in the War Eagle Conference.

The Gehlen boys avenged a three-point loss to H-M-S back in December with Carter DeRocher and Keaton Bonderson combining for 38 points to lead the Jays to a 22-point victory Friday night, 64-42.  DeRocher finished with 20 while Bonderson had 18.  Dylan Lehmann also hit double figures for Gehlen with 10.  The Jays raced to a 32-19 halftime lead after trailing 16-12 after a quarter.  Lance Berends had 16 for the Hawks.  Gehlen improves to 4-10 for the season and 2-4 in league play.  Gehlen Catholic celebrates ‘Catholic Schools Week’ next week by hosting Remsen St. Mary’s Tuesday night.  The doubleheader will be broadcast on KLEM.

SUNDAY RESULTS – January 26

UNDATED (AP) — The basketball community is mourning the death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant at age 41.  The former Lakers guard, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others are dead after their helicopter went down Sunday morning about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Authorities said that nine people were aboard the helicopter and presumed dead. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Bryant was among the victims, while another person with knowledge of the matter says his daughter, Gianna, also was killed.  Bryant won five NBA titles during a 20-year playing career spent entirely with the Lakers. He retired in 2016 as the league’s No. 3 all-time scorer and remained there until Lakers forward LeBron James passed him on Saturday.  Bryant was the league MVP in 2008, captured two scoring titles and earned 12 selections to the NBA’s All-Defensive teams.

PRO BOWL ALL-STAR GAME —  A-F-C 38, N-F-C 33

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The Pro Bowl turned into a Kobe Bryant tribute. Players got together and faked fadeaway jumpers after big plays in an homage to Bryant. Green Bay receiver Davonte Adams pointed to the sky and flashed the number “24” on his fingers as an ode to Bryant’s jersey after a touchdown catch. The NFL’s annual all-star game also held a moment of silence for Bryant in the first half. The AFC beat the NFC 38-33 for a fourth consecutive victory in Orlando. The latest one might have been the last near Walt Disney World. The NFL is considering moving the game around.
