South Central Calhoun at Pocahontas Area

Pocahontas Area 58

South Central Calhoun 49


A battle between two ranked teams unfolded Tuesday night as the eighth ranked Pocahontas Area Indians hosted the 12th ranked South Central Calhoun Titans. 

South Central Calhoun had won 10 of their last games and just came away with a 70-57 win over Alta-Aurelia while Pocahontas Area went 3-2 in their last five games. Both teams started off with some mistakes with ball handling and scoring early. Kylee Schliesman showed off her athletic abilities in the paint in the quarter with six points and started to give the Titans some momentum. After some back and forth, the Titans were able to hold on to a 13-8 lead going into the second quarter. Schleisman took a back seat in the next quarter and was able to command her team to 23 points. Riley Batta started to fire up with a three pointer and two other buckets while Mia Babcock found herself with six points in the paint. The momentum clearly was in favor of the Titans as they led 36-21 at halftime.

Titans’ Head Coach Curt Batta says his team battled some minor injuries, but was happy to see how his team commanded the floor in the first half. The second half saw the tides turn on a dime in favor of Pocahontas Area. The Indians were unstoppable from beyond the arc, draining five three-pointers to cut down the 15 point lead all the way down to two points, and eventually tied it at 42 point before the end of the quarter. Despite only shooting 26% from long range, the Indians caught a bit of momentum and used it. Carly Janssen and Akaysa Duitscher both hit two three-pointers to lead the comeback for Pocahontas Area. South Central Calhoun were unable to catch a break to make many baskets in the quarter, putting down only six points. 

In the last eight minutes of regulation, the Indians continued to attack the hoop with Duitscher and Abby Oberhelman, while the Titans continued to struggle. Coach Batta says off-screen points are what hurt them the most in the quarter and some unfortunate foul calls that did not go their way. Pocahontas Area grabbed the lead and never let it go as they were able to knock off South Central Calhoun 58-49.

For the Titans, Schleisman ended up with 19 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists while teammate Riley Batta had nine points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals. The Titans were handed their first loss in conference play and are now 4-1 in the Twin Lakes Conference and 10-2 overall on the season. They are off until Thursday, January 19th when they take on Emmetsburg on the road.
