Lynx can’t stop Cadets

IOWA FALLS — The Webster City girls were unable to overcome a career-night from Ella Sharar and Iowa Falls-Alden here Tuesday, falling 75-52.

Sharar scored 42 points to lead the way for the Cadets, who broke the game open with a 27-point third quarter.

Leading the way for the Lynx was Olivia Gallentine, as she scored 17 points. Alivia Burns joined her in double figures with 10 while Addyson Beaulieu had nine.

“First off, gotta give credit to Ella Sharar,” WCHS head coach Mark Fisher said. “She’s a talented player and when she plays like she did, she’s tough to guard.

“Obviously it falls on me to come up with a better plan to stop her, but she also played very well. It was actually her movement off the ball that made her tough to defend.”

Gallentine recorded eight rebounds with Marissa Hedeen grabbing six. Izzy Grossoehme had five points.

Ady Poppen also scored eight points and had five rebounds.

“I thought we battled on defense, missed some shots early but kept with it and were able to get in more of a rhythm in the second half,” Fisher said. “Our girls continue to work to get better every day and we’re seeing it on the court.”
