Lady Chiefs enjoy unexpected weekend with three victories

Dec 18, 2016 By Randy Tucker, Staff Writer

Wyoming Indian and Wind River joined Shoshoni and Dubois at the Wrangler Invitational after weather cancelled the Big Horn Classic.

The Wyoming Indian Lady Chiefs rolled to a 3-0 weekend in a much different setting than head coach Aleta Moss had in mind.

Wyoming Indian rolled over rival Wind River, 53-34, in the Shoshoni auxiliary gym after having their original venue, the Foothills Classic in Big Horn and Tongue River cancelled due to bad weather.

The Chiefs and Cougars both intended to play the entire weekend in Sheridan County, but were happy to get an invite to the Wranglers' tournament in Shoshoni after South Pass was closed and Cokeville was unable to attend, with Southeast chosing not to travel.

The Chiefs have blown out the Cougars in recent years, but this game was more even for both teams.

The Lady Chiefs held the advantage throughout, but Wind River was able to compete in the contest.

Wind River cut an early double-digit Wyoming Indian lead to just eight points late in the third period before the Chiefs recovered and pulled away in the final minutes.

Amryn Brown had an excellent outing with 22 points and Morning Gambler scored 11 to pace the Chiefs.

Madi David led the Cougars with 11 and Natasha Lookingbill finished with nine.

Wyoming Indian 70, Dubois 24

The Lady Chiefs rolled over Dubois on Friday morning, 70-24, in a game shortened by the 40-point mercy rule late in the third period. The Rams were held scoreless in the final period and tallied just one field goal in the third period.

Brown tallied 27 for the Chiefs and Gambler scored 10, whileCalyn O'Neal led Dubois with 12.

Lady Cougars

It was a long weekend for the Lady Cougars, with Wind River dropping three straight to move to 0-7 on the season.

The Cougars fell to Rocky Mountain on Saturday afternoon, 43-20, after dropping a 54-17 decision to the second-ranked team in Class 1-A, the Little Snake River Rattlers.

Wind River plays Rocky Mountain again at Worland on Friday, while the Chiefs and Rams are idle until after Christmas.
