BY TIM HANSON
The Trojans were bounced from the 2014 Region 5 tournament by the Bismarck Shiloh Christian Skyhawks, 66-36, in the tournaments’ opening game.
It took until the 6:56 mark before the 23-1 Skyhawks got on the scoreboard with a deuce from Gabby Wilkinson. Haley Zinke answered with a drive and bucket just seconds later to tie the game at two.
That was the only score for the Trojans in the first quarter as the Skyhawks scored twelve unanswered points and led at the end of one :14-2.
Wilkinson started the second quarter with a triple to put her team up 17-2. The Trojans got a free-throw from Kennedy Son-drol and a deuce and a free-throw from Brooklyn Anderson to cut the Skyhawks’ lead to 19-6 at the 6:22 mark.
The Trojans were plagued by turnovers and fouls in the second quarter but Tasha Williams and Brooklyn Anderson managed to score five points each the last half of the quarter.
The Skyhawks led at the half time break: 36-15.
The only bright spot for the Trojans in the third quarter was a pair of free throws from Trista Crimmins; followed by a bucket from Mariah Sellon. Williams scored the last five points of the quarter but the Trojans trailed, 49-24, at the end of three.
The Trojans traded buckets with Skyhawks the first three possessions of the fourth quarter with Sellon and Crimmins getting deuces and Zinke a triple.
