Ten Sleep downs St. Stephen's boys and girls in Friday action

Jan 20, 2013 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

Ten Sleep overcame an early 10-point deficit to win 52-35 Friday afternoon against the home-standing St. Stephen's Eagles girls basketball team.

In the boys contest, the Ten Sleep Pioneers crushed the Eagles 77-27.

St. Stephen's was missing its top two players for different reasons.

Cole Littleshield was ineligible, and Lakota Oldman injured his wrist last weekend against Greybull.

Oldman is expected to be out two to three weeks, and Littleshield is back next weekend.

The Eagles will host Dubois Friday night in a conference doubleheader.

The girls will go at 5:30 p.m., followed by the boys.

"We were transitioning really well in the first half," St. Stephen's girls coach Mike Redman said. "We were transitioning our defense back into the offense. We started to run our offense, and the plays started to get executed. We just ran out of gas in the second half. "

The good start resulted in an early 14-3 lead for the Eagles.

Ten Sleep started to chip away at the advantage. The visiting team took its first lead at 17-16 with three minutes left in the first half.

St. Stephen's struggled all game long at the charity stripe and was 0-8 in the second quarter. The Lady Eagles finished the game going 2-13.

In the third quarter, Ten Sleep took control of the game, outscoring St. Stephen's 16-2 for the league victory.

St. Stephen's freshman Rachelle Lynch connected for 19 points in the loss.

With its star players out of the lineup, the Eagles showed a little life hung in with Ten Sleep for the first eight minutes.

The Pioneers had a slim 10-9 lead heading into the second quarter.

In the next period, the fierce scoring tandem of Logan Burningham and Friscoe Erdahl couldn't be stopped. Burningham stepped outside for three 3-pointers, and Erdahl recorded five field goals for a huge 43-17 advantage at the break.

Erdahl ended the game with 22 points, and Burningham had 21 points.
