Eddies romp past Plainwell

EDWARDSBURG — It was supposed to be a showdown between Wolverine Conference division leaders.

What it turned out to be was just another blowout for the Edwardsburg girls basketball team, which defeated visiting Plainwell 63-28 Tuesday night.

Edwardsburg senior Abbey Krugh said that the Eddies would need to be focused and play together against the Trojans following last Friday night’s 59-24 win over Dowagiac.

“We have to pick up the intensity,” Krugh said about finishing off the regular season and preparing for the playoffs. “Plainwell is a pretty good team. We just have to be tougher than they are and outwork them.”

The outcome of the game against the Trojans was decided in the first quarter as the Eddies rolled to a 25-8 lead.

Edwardsburg did not look back and led 51-16 by halftime.

Claire Bartz led the Eddies and all scorers with 17 points. Krugh added 16 points and Katie Schaible 15.

Against Dowagiac last Friday, the Eddies raced out to a 22-5 lead, and then rotated its starters and subs the remainder of the game in a 59-24 win over the Chieftains Friday night.

Edwardsburg led 41-10 at halftime.

Dowagiac came out of the locker room focused on playing better basketball in the second half.

The Chieftains did just that, hanging with the Eddies and only getting outscored 18-14 over the final 16 minutes of play, most of which came under the running clock.

Krugh had 16 points for the Eddies.

Makayla Hill led Dowagiac with 10 points.
