Girls basketball: Rebels' team effort tops Prince of Peace

GOOSE LAKE — On a night where one senior was honored for a big offensive achievement, the Northeast Rebels followed up with a team-built offensive blast in a 58-34 girls basketball win over Prince of Peace.

Addie Oberman was presented a special commemorative ball honoring her achievement of 1,000 points that was met last week, and she followed that up with scoring 16 more points Tuesday night.

“I thought we kept things very consistent tonight,” Rebels coach Charles Jargo said. “We scored in double figures by quarter, which is always one of our goals, and defensively, we limited our fouls.”

Jargo referedback to Northeast’s only loss of the season (Dec. 13 against Monticello), where the Rebels committed 26 fouls, and he believed that cost them the game. The Rebels committed 15 against the Irish.

“We still need to do a better job of that, and we’re going to key in on that over Christmas break,” he said.

Oberman wasn’t the only Northeast girl to score 16. Breanne Butler also scored that many, including 12 in the second half.

“We’ve been waiting for her to come along and play like we know she can,” Jargo said. “She’s been slowed down by an injury some, but tonight was her best offensive performance this season.”

Aleenah Marcucci was the third Rebel to score in double figures — she scored 10.

Meanwhile, for the Irish, turnovers and allowing second-chance opportunities were what Irish coach Scott Maddasion believed hurt their chances to win.

“We considered that a mental error, and when you compound those, you’re not going to give yourself a good chance to win,” Maddasion said. “We knew coming in that they liked to crash the boards, and we didn’t execute screening out our opponent.”

In terms of turnovers, Maddaison believed his Irish got overaggresssive.

“We didn’t think too smartly tonight,” he said. “All in all, I think we played an OK game. We had shots going in and we were driving hard to the basket, but we just weren’t thinking.”
