The Cambridge-Isanti girls got out to a fast start against Monticello Tuesday night and kept it up the entire game, defeating the Magic 83-41 in Mississippi 8 conference play. Shana Oberlander scored all 15 of her points before halftime as the Bluejackets scored 52 points in the first half. In addition to Oberlander’s 15, three other Bluejackets scored in double figures- Whitney Olson scored 14 while Deandra Vavra and Kesley Holmberg each dumped in 10. The Jackets, now 8-5 in conference play and 16-7 overall, travel to Becker on Friday night to take on the Bulldogs (8-5 conference, 12-11 overall) in the second half of a boys/girls doubleheader.
It was a tight, defensive struggle in the boys’ half of the doubleheader but in the end, Monticello made one final stop to win a close one, 53-51. Trailing 52-51 with 20 seconds left, Cambridge-Isanti set up a play to the basket but Christian Metz’s shot in traffic bounced off the rim. After Monticello made one of two free throws with 3.7 seconds remaining, the Magic swarmed guard Braden Johnson and didn’t allow him to get a potential game-winning shot off before the buzzer. Izak Sheforgen led the Jackets with 14 points on the night with Zak Mathson the only other Jacket in double figures with 10. The loss dropped the Bluejackets to 7-5 in Mississippi 8 play and 11-9 overall, and they’ll be the early game in the doubleheader at Becker on Friday.
