With five new starters in the lineup, New Haven Head Coach Doug Peirick was interested in seeing how his new lineup would fare.
And the Lady Shamrocks came through, posting a 42-15 win at Bourbon last Monday, Nov. 19.
“We did some real good things in this game and we did some not so good things,” Peirick said. “This was a game that we were able to find out what we need to work on and get better at.”
The Lady Shamrocks jumped out to a 13-2 advantage at the close of one quarter. At the half, New Haven led Bourbon, 22-3. New Haven was up 34-7 after three quarters.
“I thought our two guards, Makenzie Munsinger and McKenzie Overschmidt, had a real good game,” Peirick said. “They handled the ball and didn’t turn it over.”
Munsinger was New Haven’s scoring leader with 16 for the game. She knocked down one three-point shot and went 3-3 from the free-throw stripe.
Overschmidt posted eight points.
Kayla Brumels, Mackenzie Wilson and Alexis Sidwell each scored four points.
Claire Meyer, Ellie Westermeyer and Hannah Rethemeyer had two points apiece and were the rebounding leaders.
“Ellie Westermeyer and Hannah Rethemeyer rebounded well with seven and six rebounds respectively,” Peirick said. “Everyone got to play and all but two scored.”
New Haven is playing this week in the Montgomery County Tournament.
