The Clifton-Clyde and Linn girls both had chances to win Tuesday’s basketball game at Clyde, but it took two overtimes for the Lady Eagles to finally claim a 49-43 league victory. The game ran over two hours and featured 78 free throw attempts with six girls fouling out of the game. Both teams also had struggles with turnovers: Linn had 41 turnovers to Clifton-Clyde’s 18.

Clifton-Clyde was down two starters for Tuesday’s game. Kiara Knox was out with an injury and the team’s leading scorer and rebounder, Mallory Callihan, got sick just before the game and did not play. Despite that, the Lady Eagles took the lead in the game and held it, leading 19-11 at half.

In the third quarter, Linn pushed to narrow Clifton-Clyde’s lead, scoring 14 points to the Lady Eagles’ eight to end the quarter down just two points, 25-27.

PRE-SEASON BASKETBALL REPORT

The Hanover boys qualified for the state basketball tournament last year for the 15th time in the last 24 years. They were also undefeated in the regular season in the Twin Valley League and had a 24-2 overall record. But after losing all five experienced starters from last year’s team, Hanover’s program will be put to the test this year.

Coach Kim Lohse enters his 25th year as head coach at Hanover. He has a 507-109 record with the Wildcats. Under Coach Lohse, Hanover has won 13 league title and state championships in 1998, 1999, 2009, 2010, 2015 and 2017.

He’ll be working with players who have not had a lot of varsity experience, but last year’s junior varsity had a 16-2 record and the team will be filled with athletes who also had a very successful football season.

Attention basketball parents

Basketball season is here and the Washington County News wants to continue its comprehensive sports coverage of prep sports for Clifton-Clyde, Hanover, Linn and Washington County.

We may need some help including player stats in our game articles. We get our stats from coaches in many different forms and some offer more than others. Some stats are uploaded the night of the game, but sometimes they come late (or not at all).

But you can help!
