Pacific and St. Clair wrapped up a competitive Four Rivers Conference girls basketball season Thursday night.

The Lady Indians (18-5, 4-3) knocked off St. Clair at the Reservation, 52-39.

Pacific also won a home contest Tuesday over Eureka, 47-42.

“No one went undefeated in our conference, which shows how strong it was,” said Pacific Head Coach Josh Spuhl. “We’re excited about the rest of the season. Our goal always has been to keep getting better for districts.”

Pacific-St. Clair

Pacific held leads over St. Clair of 14-10 after one quarter, 26-19 at halftime and 41-29 after three quarters.

“As a team, we played great. I felt like we were in control for the whole game, but couldn’t pull away from them,” Spuhl said. “We had an 18-point lead around the end of the third quarter or at the beginning of the fourth, but St. Clair never quit.”

Lizzy Almo led a balanced Pacific scoring attack with 12 points. She was 6-6 from the free-throw line.

Ashley Hill and Kya Hill both finished with nine points.

Ellen Rogers pitched in with eight points. She was 6-8 from the foul line. Hunter Kelemen netted six points.

Abby Spuhl scored five points. Meagan Wakefield had three points.

St. Clair (10-13, 1-6) was led by Allison Hinson, who scored 11 points.

“It was a good effort. We played hard. We put them on the line too many times and they took advantage,” said St. Clair Head Coach Jena Carroll. “We are still making adjustments and still working hard to try and finish this season at our best.”

Karissa Hoffman, Sam Deason and Alicia York each added six points.

Katelyn Guehne pitched in with five points. Anna Reed and Emily Presley both scored two points. Kayla Klenke had one point.

“St. Clair has a big, strong team, especially their first five,” Spuhl said. “It seems like they scored a majority of their points on put backs. We did a better job blocking them out in the second half.”

Pacific was 19-24 from the free-throw line. St. Clair was 5-10.

“Lizzy, Ashley and Kya hit key free throws down the stretch,” Spuhl said. “We did a lot of our scoring from the free-throw line.”

Pacific-Eureka

Defense was the key for Pacific in Tuesday’s victory over Eureka.

The Lady Indians held leads of 14-11 after one quarter, 27-24 at halftime and 37-31 after three quarters.

“We played great team defense. I was very happy with how we communicated in the game,” Spuhl said. “We knew we had to work hard to contain the 6-1 (Lindsey) McCoy. She’s a tough player.”

Almo paced Pacific with 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Kya Hill finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds.

Ashley Hill added eight points, five assists, two rebounds and two steals.

Spuhl registered eight points, five rebounds and two steals.

Rogers collected five points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Wakefield scored two points. Kelemen added three steals. Karlie King also played.

“Kya and Lizzy had a good night. Ashley and Abby also played great down the stretch. Ellen had some big defensive plays as well,” Spuhl said. “We pulled away by eight points a few times, but Eureka kept fighting back. I’m glad we pulled it together at the end to get the win.”

Pacific shot 39 percent from the field, had 13 steals, 29 rebounds and was 5-8 from the free-throw line.

Eureka (13-10) was led by Kelsey Tepen, who had 15 points and seven rebounds. Lindsey McCoy added 10 points and seven rebounds.

“We were able to sell over 230 shirts for our pink out night,” Spuhl said. “We were raising money for the American Cancer Society.”

Pacific-Hermann

Pacific lost at Hermann on Feb. 11 by a 60-52 score.

With the score tied 31-31 at halftime, Hermann was able to slowly increase its lead in the second half, outscoring Pacific 29-21, including 19-13 in the third quarter.

“It was a competitive game throughout. We executed pretty well on the offensive end throughout the game and did a good job defensively in the second half,” said Hermann Head Coach Todd Anderson.

“Hermann is a well-coached ball team. They played extremely hard all four quarters,” said Spuhl. “We didn’t put a whole game together. We got frazzled in the second half. We only attempted two free throws in the second half, and finished eight of 10 on the night.”

Hermann guard Karinne Lane finished the game with 16 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and four steals.

Jamie Gleeson had 16 points, 11 rebounds and two steals.

Kirsten Leimkuehler added 14 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals. She was 3-5 from three-point range.

Tesla Ruediger collected seven points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals.

Kali Stiers pitched in with four points, four rebounds and four assists.

Makaley Schneider had three points.

Kya Hill paced Pacific in the game with 14 points. Ashley Hill added 10 points.

Almo finished with nine points. Kelemen and Wakefield both scored seven points.

Spuhl scored three points. Rogers had two points.
