In a game with 68 free throws attempted, the Goodhue girls basketball team secured a 75-62 victory over Triton Tuesday in Dodge Center.
The second-ranked Wildcats (21-4, 10-2 HVL Blue) made 24 of 35 free throws in the win. Sophomore Mikayla Miller scored a game-high 28 points and added four steals and four rebounds. Sophomore Mikayla Tipcke tallied 18 points and seven assists while sophomore Meridith Watson contributed nine points, 10 rebounds and nine steals. She took over a starting spot when senior Erica Tipcke was forced out by illness.
“I think she’s settling in so that’s good to see,” Goodhue head coach Josh Wieme said of Watson.
Taylor Macvey led Triton with 17 points and Abby Buehler scored 12 points. Triton shot 23-for-33 from the free-throw line.
The Wildcats led 41-30 at halftime but Triton got too many offensive rebounds, Wieme said.
“They got a lot of second chance shots against us and that’s something we need to improve on,” he said.
Goodhue closes out the regular season against Kasson-Mantorville Tuesday in Goodhue.
