Cotter girls use second half push to beat St. Charles

Gabby Bowlin scored a game-high twenty points and the Cotter girls basketball team used a second half surge to end St. Charles’ four-game winning streak with a 69-41 victory on Tuesday night.

Cotter (6-6, 3-3 Three Rivers Conference) led 27-23 at halftime, but quickly turned that four-point advantage into a cushion of  as many as 29  as they outscored St. Charles (4-6, 1-5) 42-18 in the second. Cotter’s smothering defense held Carolyn Shanahan to just two field goals.

Mikala Nelton and Jane Koll joined Bowlin in double figures with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Kirsten Weifenbach led the Ramblers with eight rebounds, while Bowlin had seven and Koll five. Cotter has now won four of its last five games.

Shanahan paced the Saints with 12 points, including 8-of-8 from the free throw line, and both Ty Thoreson and Anna Hershey scored seven apiece. Katelyn Ihrke added six rebounds.
