The seventh-grade Wolf Point girls’ basketball team competed in a jamboree, Nov. 16, hosted by the Frontier Mustangs at the Wolf Point High School.

In the first game, Wolf Point was defeated by Frontier, 41-20. The Lady Wolves only played five girls, due to injury and ineligibility issues, in the match against the Mustangs.  

Frontier was able to dictate the pace in the first half establishing a halftime lead of 21-5. Hailey Brunelle, Lauren Crawford and Laressa Dale scored for the Lady Wolves in the first half.  

In the second half, Wolf Point was outpaced 20-15 dropping the contest by a final score of 41-20. Leading the way for Wolf Point in the game was Abby Juve with 12 points. Brunelle scored five points; Crawford, two and Dale, one.   

In game two, Wolf Point defeated the Plentywood Lady Cats, 34-6.

Strong defense and rebounding allowed the Lady Wolves to build a 16-4 half time lead. In the first half, Wolf Point was paced by the inside outside duo of Juve and Brunelle with four and 12 points, respectively.  

The Lady Wolves held the Lady Cats to only one field goal in the second half behind strong team defense to win by a final score of 34-6.  

Brunelle scored 20 points while Dale made eight and Juve scored six.

Coach Stacey Summers said the team played well considering they only had five players compete in the jamboree. She added that the less-experienced players stepped up this past weekend and will benefit from the experience on the court. 

The seventh-grade team will travel to Plentywood for a jamboree Nov. 23.
