Hermann, Mo. – The Lady Shamrocks walked away with the win, holding off the Lady Warriors in this evening's consolation game 41-35.
Rachel Steinhoff had a team high 16 points with Emily Kallmeyer and Kayla Oetterer both scoring eight points, improving to 9-8 on the year.

New Haven led by two to start the second half.  The third quarter featured sloppy play at times by both teams, turning the ball over seeming out of control.  However, New Haven was fortunate as they let Warrenton have second and third chance points off of missed shots, but Warrenton was never able to capitalize.

Emily Kallmeyer knocks down a jumper from the corner late in the second half for two of her eight points.

New Haven was able to consistently knock down 15-foot jumpers, keeping them in the game and a three point lead after 24 minutes of play.

The Lady Shamrocks settled down in the fourth, playing good defense and keeping Warrenton off the boards.  New Haven was able to control the tempo, which was huge because they had extended their lead to five and were able to run time off the clock, forcing the Lady Warriors to foul.

New Haven hit their free throws down the stretch, pushing the lady rocks to their ninth win on the year.  More game photos below.
