Joliet teams have bumpy week

After the euphoria of easily defeating Harlowton both Joliet teams landed back on earth with defeats to Big Timber.

The boys followed their neat 55-32 victory over the Engineers with a narrow 50-41 loss to the Herders.

They came up against Blake Finn who this night threw six 3-pointers and earned himself and his team 18 points. Joliet had lead briefly in the first half but a 3rd quarter thrashing, 25-12, made it game set and match for the Herders. Brett Robinson led for the J-Hawks in scoring with 14 with Taylor Rowlison on 10 and Reed Wetch on 9.

The Lady J-Hawks, who had defeated the Engineers 40-26, came unstuck against the Herders losing 64-45. Despite a first half storm by their opponents that saw out the first half 38-15 to the good and despite a spirited 2nd half that saw the teams finishing 15-13, 15-13 to the Lady J-Hawks, the damage had been done.

Tayler Wright led in scoring with 14, Skyler Wright had 12 points, Shayla Webber 9, with Tressa Schwend on 4 and three others on 2 each, Vanessa Nowak, Merrin Schwero and Makenna Bushman.
