December 6, 2018

LAKE MILLS — The Lake Mills boys basketball team went on a 29-2 scoring run in the first eight minutes of the second half as the L-Cats took control of the game and won 66-33 against host Fort Atkinson in a nonconference game on Tuesday.

Lake Mills’ Matt Johnson connected on five 3-pointers and scored a game-high 19 points. Teammate Charlie Bender scored 14 points and J.T. Toepfer notched 12.

For Lake Mills (2-1), forcing turnovers and not enabling Fort Atkinson (0-4) to get post touches were key components for a big second half.

“I thought we did a nice job pressuring the guards and not letting them get into their offense,” Lake Mills head coach Steve Hicklin said.

Mike Herrington finished with nine points and Adam Moen had seven for a Lake Mills team that held Fort to 12 second-half points.

“We did a good job cleaning up on the perimeter and not letting them get post touches,” Hicklin said. “We generated a lot of turnovers.”

Lake Mills travels to Wisconsin Dells on Tuesday, Dec. 11.

“It was a good night to have an off night,” Dodgeland boys basketball coach Bill Otte said. “A couple times, Seth got hit. He hit a couple 3s in there. We did not shoot the ball very well. We had looks. We just didn’t knock them down. We hit shots when we needed to in order to keep the lead.”

Senior forward Zach Yuenger added 16 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three steals for the Trojans. Senior guard Nick Blome added three steals.

Central Wisconsin Christian (3-1, 0-1) was led by senior guard Nate VanderWerff, who led all scorers with 24 points.

“We fouled him on a 3 (near the end of the game) and he hit three free throws,” Otte said. “There are things we need to shore up now. It wasn’t our best game, but we got the W, and that’s matters the most right now.”
