Patriots move past Bobcats

FLORENCE, Wis. – Goodman-Pembine outscored Florence 16-4 in the fourth quarter and rolled to a 44-27 Northern Lakes Conference girls basketball decision Friday.

Rachel Stankevich scored 16 points and Courtney Goyak added 15 for Coach Dennis Bilski’s Patriots.

Florence trailed 28-23 entering the fourth quarter.

“We handled pressure pretty well for three quarters,” Bobcats coach Amy Johnson. “But in the fourth quarter we made some poor decisions.”

The shorthanded Bobcats also felt the effects of the flu, a player out with a concussion and another injury Friday.

“My girls ran out of gas a little bit with the things they’re dealing with,” Johnson said. “But they (Patriots) played well and the post players had some nice offensive rebounds.”

Aly Young’s seven points led Florence.

The Patriots (10-3 overall, 6-2 NL) face Elcho in Pembine on Tuesday. The Bobcats (1-10, 1-7) visit Laona on Thursday.

Goodman-Pembine defeated Florence 25-15 in the junior varsity game.
