Queens Classic: Well-rounded Camanche handles Irish

CLINTON — Kylie Vogel was sick Friday night, but not in the way commonly used in basketball. Following Camanche’s 52-31 handling of Prince of Peace in the River Queen Classic opening game, Indians coach Dan Vogel said he was nervous for how his starting point guard would perform after battling the flu the day before.

“I think she was a little timid, a little out of sorts today,” Dan Vogel said. “Physically, she was a little weak, trying to finish around the rim. I’m honestly a little worried for her tomorrow.”

Illness aside, a feeble Kylie Vogel had enough in her to drop six points while leading the Indians in assists. She was part of a well-rounded night for Camanche, which had four players score eight points and one — Julia Moore — lead the way with nine. The Indians even showcased some able bodies off the bench with Jordan Nissen and Maddie Parker wreaking havoc on defense and converting tough baskets in the lane. They scored 16 of Camanche’s 18 points off the bench.

“They played really well tonight,” Kylie Vogel said. “They surprised a lot of people, I think, with how much they were able to help us. If we’re in foul trouble or something, it goes to show we can count on people from our bench.”

Despite the lopsided score, the game wasn’t out of reach until late for the Irish. Jackie Kokjohn led all scorers with 12 points and played a pivotal role in keeping Camanche’s offense at bay early in the second half. Although the Indians led 34-18 entering the fourth quarter, they’d managed only seven points, thanks to a bolstered defensive effort from the Irish.

“A little bit of a deficit didn’t really scare us at the beginning,” Prince of Peace first-year coach Scott Maddasion said. “Unfortunately, our shots just weren’t falling, and that’s kind of why we hung back there.”
