The Central Lady Falcons hosted Lake Geneva Badger Tuesday on Parents Night. The Falcons prevailed 50-41 to improve to 6-2 and 2-2 in the Southern Lakes Conference.

Coach Dan Derler’s Falcons jumped out to an early lead on the strong play of Faith Lois and inside spark of Randi Rederer. However, the Badgers had a strong outside shooting game from Gina Ambrose to shrink the lead to 10-8 at the end of the first quarter.

The Falcons had a great second quarter due to the play of point guard Abbie Reeves and Lois to take a commanding 26-15 lead into halftime. Central continued its strong play by extending their defense and scoring from Rederer, Lois and Reeves to expand their lead to 38-25 after three quarters. Many in the crowd seemed to think the game was in hand, however Badger turned around the defensive pressure and turned Falcons turnovers into easy baskets, and closed the Falcon lead to 45-41 with under a minute to play. With Reeves handling the ball with some help from Lois the Falcons held on the lead by hitting their free throws at the end of the game.

The Falcons were led by Reeves’ 16 points and 3 steals, with Lois’ chipping in 15 points and dominating the boards with 10 rebounds. Rederer had 12 points and 3 steals.

Badger was led by Gina Ambrose with 14 points.
