03/05/2016 - CLASS B CHAMPIONSHIP: Elkhorn South Shuts Down Waverly

By Jeff Motz

The rematch went to Elkhorn South on Saturday afternoon.

A 12-0 second quarter run helped the Storm to a 43-33 victory over fellow Eastern Midlands Conference rival Waverly in the Class B Girls State Basketball Championship game at Pinnacle Bank Arena. 

Elkhorn South (24-5) avenged a 36-28 loss earlier in the year to Waverly.  It also marked the first Class B championship game in recent memory that two at-large or wildcard teams played in the final.

Counting for the 12-0 run was senior forward Paige Piatkowski, who scored six of her 11 points during that stretch.  Piatkowski hit a three-pointer, while Hannah Raymond sank a free throw.  Piatkowski then converted on a three-point play, while Kathryn Emsick hit a tray and Cassie Legband scored on a put back for a 19-9 Elkhorn South lead with three minutes left in the first half.

After Waverly cut the deficit early in third quarter 20-17 off a basket from Ashley Cook, Elkhorn South sprinted out on a 12-3 run for a 32-20 lead.

Ashley Cook led the Vikings with 13 points.  It marked the first title game appearance for Waverly in 15 years, when they lost to South Sioux City in 2001.

Elkhorn South shot 42 percent from the field, to Waverly's 37 percent.  The Storm made 50 percent of their three-point shots, to the 20 percent from the Vikings.  At the free throw line, that was won by Elkhorn South, 61 percent to 27 percent.
