December 21, 2010

Milton High used a big finish Monday night to regain a share of first place in Badger South girls basketball.


The host Red Hawks recovered from an early seven-point deficit to whip visiting Monona Grove, 59-40, in a makeup game and move into a tie with idle Madison Edgewood at 3-0 in the conference.


Edgewood needed an overtime to edge Monona Grove, 62-56, last Friday, and the Silver Eagles also gave Milton (4-0 overall) a tough time at the start. In fact, Monona Grove (0-2) led 19-14 after the first eight minutes with the help of four three-point goals.


After the Red Hawks gained a 26-24 halftime edge, Liz Eide scored six or her 21 points in the third quarter to help Milton gain some breathing room at 40-36. The 6-2 senior finished it off with a nine-point final period that led to a 19-4 domination by the Red Hawks over the last eight minutes.


Ashley Roherty backed up Eide with 11 points for Milton. Freshman guard Taylor Nelson had four of her team’s six three-point goals in leading Monona Grove with 15 points.
