Pirates win at Deary
Jennifer Enneking connected on her first 4 attempts from 3-point range then hit 4 of 6 free throws down the stretch to lead the Prairie Lady Pirates to a 40-30 league win at Deary Friday, Jan. 11.
Tiffany Schaeffer started the scoring with a 3 pointer. A 2-pointer from the wing by Kaylee Uhlenkott and Enneking’s first 3-pointer of the night gave Prairie an 8-0 lead.
Deary finally scored with 3:13 left in the first quarter.
Prairie led 10-3 at the break.
A free throw and a driving lay-up by Uhlenkott put Prairie up 13-3 two minutes into the second period.
Deary cut the lead to 5 but Enneking’s second 3-pointer and a 4-0 close to the half gave Prairie a 20-10 halftime lead.
Deary connected on just 2 of 23 shots from the field in the half. They went 6 for 8 at the line to help keep them relatively close.
Deary shot much better in the second half but wasn’t able to cut into Prairie’s lead as Uhlenkott hit 3 of 4 from the field and Enneking added 2 more 3-pointers. Prairie was also efficient from the line, hitting 8 of 13 free throws.
Deary was never able to get any closer than 9 points.
Enneking wound up with 16 points to lead the scoring while Uhlenkott scored 13. Tiffany Schaeffer scored 5, Sarah Arnzen and Kristi Poxleitner 2 each and Kim Schaeffer and Hilaree VanderPas 1 each.

Prairie was 5 for 9 from 3-point range with Enneking hitting 4 of 5. Her only miss was a long attempt at the buzzer at the end of the third quarter. It wouldn’t have been much of a surprise to have seen that go in as her attempt a minute earlier had taken a high bounce off the rim before dropping through.
