The Trojans (11-1-0) used a combination of stifling defense and outside shooting on offense to defeat previously unbeaten STMA (12-1-0) by a score of 54-44.
The Knights used a 2-3 zone defensively throughout the game, and lead 24-23 at the half as Wayzata struggled to adapt to the scheme.
Wayzata was able to keep phenom Tessa Johnson in check with help defense and always seemed to have a hand in her face.
Towards the middle of the 2nd half, things began to Wayzata’s way as the Trojans were able to secure defensive stops, get easy buckets on fast breaks, and shoot well from outside.
Wayzata’s execution was too much for the Knights, and late in the 2nd half with STMA trailing it became obvious the Trojans were destined to win this one.
Sophie Hawkinson scored 15 points with three field goals and three 3-pointers. Brynn Senden (Minnesota commit) had 11 points including two 3-pointers. Abby Krzewinski had 10 points, Kate Amelotte had 7 points, Jessica Oberlander has 4 points, and Ella Goodnature had 2.
