Leinie Hughes jumps for the Lady Scotties in the overtime tip-off against Glendive on Jan. 26. Glasgow finished on top with a score of 51-48.

The Lady Scotties split two games last week, with an overtime win against the class A Dawson County Red Devils Jan. 26, and a conference loss to the Poplar Lady Indians on Jan. 28.

For the second time this season, Glasgow defeated Glendive, this time on the road in front of the always animated DCHS student section.

Despite the antics of the crowd and some questionable calls from the game referees, the Lady Scotties kept their composure and played a pretty consistent game.

Leading the way offensively for the Scotties was Leinie Hughes with 19 points. Defensively Hughes also snagged 11 rebounds and clinched the double-double for her efforts.

Lexi Nixdorf and Khloe Krumwiede also hit double digits, with Nixdorf shooting 100 percent from the floor and Krumwiede sinking 100 percent at the line.

Ziggy Chamberlain came off the bench to contribute during the game.

Defensively, the Lady Scotties were tasked with shutting down Glendive's Wyniah Mintz, but she managed to score a team high 18 points, while they racked up 24 personal fouls along the way.

No harm, no foul, though, as the game progressed into overtime and Glasgow held their own for the 51-48 win.

The Lady Red Devils gifted the Scotties with 12 attempts at the charity stripe in the four-minute overtime, half of which were successful.

Glasgow 9 9  14  7  12 - 51

Glendive 3  12  10 14  9 - 48 

Glasgow: Khloe Krumwiede 10, Lexi Nixdorf 11, Ziggy Chamberlain 3, Jordan Kulczyk 5, Leinie Hughes 19, Tyra Johnson 3. Fouled out: Khloe Krumwiede.

Glendive: Thea Robson 5, Jaley Wyse 1, Wyniah Mintz 18, Bailey Pearcy 11, Carrie Nagle 3, Karsen Murphy 6.

In their second meeting of the season, Glasgow was looking to avenge a loss against the Poplar Lady Indians. If the

Lady Scotties had played the whole game, they may have done just that. Following a dismal first quarter with five-points put up solely by Jordan Kulczyk, Glasgow performed barely-better in the second quarter with eight points. Turnovers were also running high. As the girls headed to the locker room for halftime, they had already turned the ball over 11 times.

When the Lady Scotties returned to the game, they showed the crowd what they are really made of and exploded offensively, scoring 20 points to put the scare into the Lady Indians.

Junior Ashtyn Myrick's contribution during the contest was short-lived as she sustained an injury from a hard hit to the floor.

In the end, however, Glasgow could not overcome the height of Imani Bighorn nor the on-point shooting of Alleen Russell, who scored 20 points in the contest. Poplar gained control in the fourth quarter and finished on top 53-39.

Glasgow 5  8 20  6 - 39 

Poplar 15 14 8 16 - 53 

Glasgow: Khloe Krumwiede 1, Lexi Nixdorf 4, Jordan Kulczyk 13, Leinie Hughes 19, Tyra Johnson 2. Fouled out: Lexi Nixdorf

Poplar: Alleen Russell 20, Kylee Stump 5, Samantha Youngman 5, Reese Belton 1, Chlo'e Shields 6, Imani Bighorn 16.

The Scotties will be playing Harlem at home on Thursday, Feb. 2. Senior night festivities will be held just prior to the game with Tyra Johnson, Leinie Hughes, Lexi Nixdorf, Jordan Kulczyk and Khloe Krumwiede being recognized. On Saturday, Feb. 4, the Lady Scotties will travel to Scobey for a non-conference match-up against the Spartans.
