Mount Ayr 71, Southwest Valley 65

MOUNT AYR — Sam Stewart and Keirston Klommhaus weren't going to be stopped throughout Tuesday's intense home contest with Southwest Valley, a 73-64 Raiderette win.

Stewart scored 30 and was 12 of 14 from the free throw line with six assists and four steals. Her counterpart, Klommhaus, scored 26 points, grabbed eight rebounds and registered five steals.

The Raiderettes outscored the Timberwolves 26-15 in a frantic fourth quarter for the victory.

"Two things won this game for us: free throws at the end and the turnover battle," coach Thad Streit said. "When we got down we never got rattled and we kept plugging away until the very end. I would like us to be a little more disciplined on both ends, but we played hard and good things happen when you play hard."

Morgan Shuey scored 22, Jentry Schafer added 18 points and eight rebounds, Payton Thomas' 11 points were big for the Timberwolves as well.
