Gwinn ModelTowner Girls Basketball defeated the Superior Central Cougars on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and GoToGwinn.com Friday January 23rd, 2015

GWINN, MICHIGAN 01/23/2015- The Gwinn ModelTowner Girls basketball took on the Superior Central Cougars this Friday night at the home court in Gwinn. It looked like it was going to be an easy win for Gwinn but the Superior Central Cougars put up a little fight. Our Gwinn ModelTowner Girls were a little shaky with the free throws tonight but they wound up taking the lead towards half-time and never looked back. Gordon Mielke brought you all of the in-game action on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and streamed LIVE and on your smartphone at GoToGwinn.com.

The first quarter started off pretty good with Ellie Olson scoring the first two points of the game for our ModelTowners. The Cougars tried to keep up but our ModelTowners stayed in the lead. Katie Trowbridge for the Superior Central Cougars made an awesome long 3-pointer this quarter to put the Cougars on the board.  There were a lot of unselfish passes on the court by our Gwinn ModelTowners and everyone on the floor was able to get their chance with the ball. Gwinn took the lead this quarter with a score of 18-6. Gordon Mielke brought you all of the in-game action on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and GoToGwinn.com.

First Quarter Score:
ModelTowners: 18
Cougars: 6

Second quarter action took the Gwinn ModelTowners up to a nineteen point lead! The free throws were a little sloppy for Gwinn but they were lucky enough to not have to worry about falling behind if they didn’t make them. Tiara Taylor and Tori Lauren were unstoppable yet again this game and they managed to keep the baskets swooshing. The score for this quarter was 28-9 with our ModelTowner ladies in the lead. Gordon Mielke brought you all of the second quarter action on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and

Parents night!

streamed LIVE and on your smartphones at GoToGwinn.com.

Second Quarter Score:
ModelTowners: 28
Cougars: 9

The Cougars started to put up a fight in the third quarter and started to push their score up as much as they were able to. Tiara Taylor, with her height advantage, was able to keep making baskets and scored quite a bit in a row to keep our ModelTowners in the lead. Tori Lauren had a nice left-handed hook shot this quarter as well. The final score for the third quarter was 41-14 with our ModelTowners in the lead. Gordon Mielke brought you all of the in-game action on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and GoToGwinn.com.

Third Quarter Score:
ModelTowners: 41
Cougars: 14

The fourth quarter brought more troubles for our ModelTowner ladies at the free throw line. Gwinn kept up in the lead while the Cougars managed to score twelve more points this quarter. Towards the end, the ModelTowners played “keep-away” with the ball and took the win with a final game score of 51-26. Good job to Tiara Taylor who scored the most points, seventeen, for our ModelTowners this game. Gordon Mielke brought you all of the in-game action on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and GoToGwinn.com.

Final Score:
ModelTowners: 51
Cougars: 26
