GLENVILLE — Kalli Van Ryswyk scored 13 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Spring Grove Lions girls’ basketball team defeated the Glenville-Emmons Wolverines 65-31 Friday in Glenville.

“I thought we hung with them in the first half,” Glenville-Emmons coach Lisa Ziebell said. “The girls played tough defensively, But I knew Spring Grove’s running game would wear on us.”

The Lions used that running games as they went into halftime with a 31-18 lead over the Wolverines.

“I told the girls the longer we kept the ball our of their hands, the less they can score,” Ziebell said.

The Wolverines shot 9-of-31 from the field and shot 7-of-11 from the free throw line.

Along with Van Ryswyk’s 13 points, Emily Belshan had 8 points for the Wolverines.
