Shears then opened the second half scoring with a lay-up and then a 3-pointer for a 28-14 lead.

Twice more Kendrick cut the lead to 11 at 36-25 and 38-27 but each time Prairie responded. The first with a basket by Shears and on the second with a 3-pointer by Forsmann.

A layup by Schlader and a free throw and then a basket by Uhlenkott made it 46-29 2 minutes into the fourth quarter.

Vs. Potlatch
Prairie outscored Potlatch 15-0 in the first quarter on their way to a 63-17 win on Senior Night. Ellea Uhlenkott, a senior, puts up a shot against Potlatch on Senior Night.
Potlatch was 0 for 7 from the field and 0 for 3 from the line in that opening quarter and had 11 turnovers.
Prairie meanwhile wasn’t blistering the nets as they hit just 5 of 15 from the field and 3 of 6 at the line but it was enough to build a double digit lead.
Schwartz, a senior, normally the first player in off the bench, started instead Wemhoff and scored Prairie’s first 2 points of the game on a short baseline shot. Shears, also a senior, followed with a 3-pointer. It took awhile for the third senior, Uhlenkott, to get on the scoreboard.
Prairie followed that start with a basket by Lockett, a free throw each by Shears and Schwartz, another 3 by Shears and 2 baskets by Wemhoff, who came off the bench last in the quarter.
Potlatch finally got on the board 20 seconds into the second quarter with 2 free throws. It was over 2 minutes later before they scored their first basket. In between those two scores Prairie added 7 more points. Schlader scored a putback, Shears drove to the hoop after making a steal, Schlader scored a free throw and then had a steal that led to a basket by Wemhoff. That made it 22-2 and Potlatch’s first basket made it 22-4.
Prairie outscored Potlatch 13-5 the rest of the half to take a 35-9 halftime lead.
Both sides shot a bunch of free throws in the second quarter. Each team was 7 for 13 at the line in the quarter.

The Pirates outscored Potlatch 16-5 in the third quarter as they held the Loggers to 2 baskets although 1 was a 3-pointers.
Prairie meanwhile got a free throw from Lockett, a basket from Wemhoff and 2 free throws from Schwartz in a 5-0 run. After Potlatch’s 3-pointer, Shears answered with a 3-pointer then Schwartz scored a lay-up. Forsmann made a free throw, Schlader a 3 and Shears finished off the quarter by taking a steal to the hoop for a layup to make it 51-19 at the end of the period.
The fourth quarter was played with a running clock. Schwartz opened the quarter with her second 3-point play of the game and Shears followed with her fourth 3-pointer to make it 57-14.
At that point coach Lori Mader realized that Uhlenkott had yet to score in her final home game and set up the offense to get her a basket.
The first attempt didn’t work and Wemhoff wound up scoring a 15 footer. With 2:23 left Uhlenkott got on the board with a lay-up and after a 3-pointer by Potlatch, scored the game’s final 2 points at the free throw line.
Shears wound up with 17 points with Schwartz scoring 14. Wemhoff scored 10, Schlader 8, Lockett 5, Uhlenkott and Prigge 4 each and Forsmann 1.
