Third Quarter Surge Keeps Quarrier Girls Undefeated

DRvsHamlin_GBB_12-16-17After a slow first half, the Dell Rapids Quarrier girls basketball team exploded for 21 third quarter points and earned a 46-38 come-from-behind win over the #3 ranked Hamlin Chargers at the Entringer Classic on Saturday, December 16th. The Quarrier defense kept the Chargers in check all night long as Dell Rapids forced 17 turnovers and 30 missed shots in the game.

Both teams couldn’t find the offensive groove in the first half. Hamlin led at the end of the first quarter 11-9. The two teams combined for just a total of nine points in the second quarter, and Dell Rapids didn’t make a field goal in the second quarter. The Chargers led 16-13 at halftime.

Dell Rapids made the necessary adjustments at halftime and came out on fire. The Quarriers went on a 21-3 run to lead by as many as 15 points at 34-19. The Chargers closed out the third quarter with the final four points to cut the lead to 34-23. Hamlin took advantage of some Quarrier foul trouble in the fourth quarter and pulled within three points a couple of times in the game. But each time the Chargers got close, the Quarriers came up with a big made basket of clutch free-throws to keep Hamlin at bay to win the game.

Dell Rapids finished the game shooting 42% from the field, 36% from beyond the three-point line, and 69% from the free-throw line. Dell Rapids had 19 team rebounds, 10 steals, and six assists.

Arial Hoffman was named the game’s MVP. She finished with 16 points, two rebounds, two assists, and one steal. Emma Paul tallied 13 points and had five rebounds. Jayda Knuppe added six points and four rebounds. Ravyn Hoffman finished with five points and three steals, and Kaylee Hennen had four points.

Double Overtime Thriller Goes Way of Titans

DRvsTea_BBB_12-15-17Dell Rapids High School was the setting for a double overtime thriller on Friday, December 15th.  The #1 ranked Tea Area Titans came away with a 68-63 win over the #4 ranked Dell Rapids Quarriers.

Both offenses got off to a slow start as Dell Rapids led 10-6 after the first quarter of play.  As both teams settled into the game, the offenses found their stride.  Both teams combined for 30 points in the second quarter, and the Titans led 24-22 at halftime after a buzzer-beater.

The Titans pushed their lead to four points at 42-38 by the end of the third quarter.  The Quarriers went on a 7-2 run to take a 45-44 lead with just under 4:00 to play in the game.  Dell Rapids pushed the lead to 50-45 with 2:30 to go, and then lead 52-48 with 1:32 on the clock.  With just :20 to go in the game, Kaleb Joffer pulled down an offensive rebound and got his put-back shot to fall to tie the game at 52-52.

That’s when things got wild in Dell Rapids.  Carson Rentz dribbled to the Quarrier end of the floor and found a wide open Elijah Story in the left corner.  Story made the three-point shot to give Dell Rapids a 55-52 lead with :04 to go in the game.  After a timeout by Tea Area, Noah Freidel drove three-quarters of the court and hit a running three-point shot at the buzzer to tie the game at 55-55 to force overtime.

Both teams scored just two points each in the first half of the first overtime.  Tea Area scored to make it 59-57 with just under 2:00 to play.  Neither team would score over the next minute and a half, and the Quarriers had the ball with :26 to go in the game down by two points.  With :11 on the clock, Rentz hit a jumper just inside the three-point line to tie the game at 59-59.  Tea Area called a timeout with :06.5 to go.  After the timeout, Freidel appeared to hit the game-winning shot as time expired and the Tea Area fans erupted.  However, an official saw a timeout called by Coach Jason Fersdahl after the made basket prior to the final buzzer sounding and added :01.3 to the game clock.  Dell Rapids had to inbound the ball underneath the Titan basket.  Elijah Story made a baseball pass to the opposite end of the court.  The pass was tipped by Logan Heim to the middle of the Quarrier lane where Jeffrey Schuch laid it off the glass and in just prior to the buzzer sounding to tie the game at 61-61 to go to double overtime.

The Titans were able to make free throws down the stretch in the second overtime as three Quarrier starters fouled out of the game in the second overtime.  Tea Area took advantage of the foul trouble and outscored Dell Rapids 7-2 for the win.

Dell Rapids finished the game shooting 36% from the field, 31% from beyond the three-point line, and 74% from the free-throw line.  The Quarriers had 51 team rebounds, 11 team assists, but turned the ball over 24 times.

Schuch finished the game with a double-double.  He had 13 points and 18 rebounds.  Story and Mason Schmidt both finished with 16 points each to lead the team.  Rentz had 15 points.  Heim added 11 rebounds in the game.

Dell Rapids (1-1) will travel to Baltic on Monday, December 18th for their next game.
