After trailing by four points heading into halftime, the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans Girls Basketball team defeated the Little Chute Mustangs 51-44 Friday night. The Spartans limited the turnovers and capitalized on scoring opportunities generated by a team season-high 14 steals. Cassie Schiltz had another very impressive outing accounting for more than half of L-C’s points with 27 total which is a season high.
One bright spot for the Mustangs was Tess Keyzers who had a nice game on offense putting up 19 but in the end, the turnovers really made this game one-sided in the second half given the 22 turnovers Little Chute gave up compared to L-C only giving up 12.
The Spartans improve to 3-1 on the season and will face the Kewaunee Storm at home on Monday for a 7:15 pm tip-off. Little Chute looks to rebound in a tough road match up against Waupaca on Thursday, December 15th at 7:15 pm.
