Camanche falls short to Mediapolis

WILTON — After building a quarter of rapid momentum against a challenging team in Mediapolis, what happened at the end of the second quarter was something the Camanche Indians could not control.

Camanche fell one game short of reaching the Iowa girls basketball state tournament, falling to the Bullettes 48-30 on Saturday night.

The Indians scored nine points in the second quarter, which may not seem like much, but after starting the game with two field goals (both from Kylie Vogel), Camanche came out with strong defense and those nine points seemed as if the Indians could spoil Mediapolis’s chances off getting to Wells Fargo Arena.

The closest the Indians got to the Bullettes was 14-13 halfway through the second quarter.

Vogel had the ball with under 5 seconds remaining in the second quarter, seeking an opportunity to get a late basket and build more momentum heading to the locker room.

Vogel then shot the ball near half court, trying to force the Bullettes into an unnecessary foul. The whistle blew, and many in the gym thought the senior standout was heading to the free-throw line. The official closest to the play didn’t see it that way.

Vogel was charged with the offensive foul, which made anyone cheering on the Camanche blue red in the face.

“That was not an offensive foul,” Camanche coach Danny Vogel said. “Kylie should have been going to the free-throw line to be shooting three free throws there, which would have given us a little momentum. That call was a huge momentum swing. It hurt us.”

Despite that one play, it wasn’t the reason why Camanche lost. The Indians just couldn’t find the bottom of the basket.

Camanche hit 10 field goals in the game and went 7-for-18 from the free-throw line.

“We just didn’t make our shots, but we had our opportunities,” coach Vogel said. “I thought they played hard, but we just didn’t shoot it well. I thought the girls played extremely hard.”
