Harlan went back up 5 but Karsyn Overmohle scored 4 straight and Kuemper was within 1.

Ogden at Glidden Ralston

Glidden Ralston 57

Ogden 37


The Glidden Ralston Wildcats get back in the win column as they snap a two game win streak with a dominant win over Ogden Monday night.

The Wildcats fell in two straight games, including against a ranked Westwood team on Saturday while Ogden were losers of three straight coming into this game. Ogden started off playing like they wanted to badly break that losing streak as they’d get up 5-0 against the Wildcats in the first quarter. Glidden Ralston was able to tie up the game at 5-5 and never looked back. They went on a 20-0 to end the first quarter and led 20-5. That success continued in the second quarter for the Wildcats, at one point getting up 27-10 and leading 34-14 going into halftime. Paige Klocke’s season continues to be written with great performance after great performance, and again she put up 20+ points with 29 in this game. 

Ogden had a nice start to the second half trying to crawl out of a 20 point deficit. They’d go on a 12-2 run to cut down the Wildcat lead to 36-26. The Wildcats weren’t phased as they were able to close out the quarter with a scoring run of their own, going 12-0 and leading 48-28 going into the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs were unable to find ways for a late game comeback as the Wildcats cruised in the final eight minutes to a 57-37 win. 

The win elevated the Wildcats to 7-6 overall on the season. Glidden Ralston is off until Friday, January 20th when they travel to take on Boyer Valley.
