03/04/15 Gwinn, Michigan – The Negaunee Miners Girls Basketball Team traveled to Gwinn, Michigan tonight to face the Manistique Emeralds, in the first round of district playoffs. Carl Leander Johnson, the voice of the Negaunee Miners and Jesse Anderson were there to bring you all the exciting tournament action LIVE on Sunny.FM!
The Miners started the game scoring the first four points to take the lead against the Manistique Emeralds. They continued to dominate the game out of the gate, and ended the first quarter with a commanding lead 14-2 over their District 94 foe.
The Emeralds continued to struggle against the Miners’ pressure, and it showed up in the turnover column of the stat sheet. With 5:15 left in the second quarter, the Emeralds were yet to score a single field goal. Hailey Fezatt had a very impressive first half off of the bench for coach Sager’s squad, scoring seven points and netting herself five rebounds. After the Emeralds knocked in a free-throw and a low post bucket to cut the lead to 13, a set of threes from seniors Courtney Clickner & Adena Anderson doomed any hope of a Manistique comeback in this one. Negaunee continued to dominate the Emeralds to increase their lead to 24-5 at the half.
The second half was coast mode for the Miners. Freshman point guard Clara Johnson hit a pair of three pointers over the course of the third quarter, and senior Ashley Tresedder’s intense defense earned her a pair of steals, three rebounds, and seven points. In a game that saw everybody score, the Negaunee Miners girls basketball team advances to the District 94 Championship game once again!
