03/07/2014 - GIRLS STATE BASKETBALL: Thunderbolts Hold Off Late Surge From Dusters

By Jeff Motz

Lincoln Pius X started strong and withstood a late comeback from Holdrege on Friday afternoon.

The Thunderbolts earned a 57-43 win over the Dusters and advancing to the Class B Championship game Saturday at 1pm at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

An 11-11 game late in the first quarter led to an 8-0 Pius X run.  Maddie Simon scored four points of her game-high 24 points during the run, while Elise Wordekemper and Kennedy Sander each scored a basket to put the Thunderbolts ahead 19-11.

Pius X led by as much as 37-17 in the third quarter.  Holdrege then stormed back and got to within seven at 48-41 with 1:50 left.  Free throws down the stretch from Bailey Knobbe and another basket from Sander helped secure the win for the 'Bolts.

Sander added 12 points for Pius X.  Rachel Jelden scored 12 points to lead Holdrege and Julianna Burr added 11 points for the Dusters.
