#1 Lady Dutch Fall to #4 Grinnell, #3 Pella Boys Take Solo 1st in LHC with Win

Posted: Saturday, January 21st, 2017 at 5:58 am

The Pella High girls basketball team dropped its first Little Hawkeye Conference game of the season, 58-44 to Grinnell, while the Little Dutch boys took first place in the league with their 59-45 victory over the Tigers in a doubleheader heard live on

Grinnell’s Kyra Hungerford scored 12 first quarter points as the Tigers built a double digit lead. Pella chipped away to make it a five-point game at intermission, but Grinnell outscored the Lady Dutch 18-6 in the decisive third quarter to put the game away.

Katie Vander Molen led Pella with 14 points, and Kiara Bradley chipped in 9 points and 7 rebounds in her first game in two weeks.

The Lady Dutch drop to 12-2 and 6-1 in the LHC.

In the boys game, it was Pella that burst out to the big early lead, grabbing a 20-8 advantage after one quarter. The Tigers clawed back within 8 at halftime, cut it to 5 after three, and trailed only 45-42 early in the fourth.

That’s when Nick De Jong scored his only two points of the game, on a third-chance basket that kept the Tigers at arm length. Nick Finney then buried back-to-back three pointers to ice it.

Finney’s 16 points was high man for Pella. Donovan Holterhaus added 15 points and Drew Pringle scored 10 and grabbed 8 boards.

Pella is now 12-1, 6-1 in the LHC, and in solo first place after Pella Christian’s loss to Oskaloosa.

Both the Pella girls and boys will play Indianola tonight. Pregame coverage starts at 5:45 with the opening tip of the girls game at 6:00. Andrew Schneider, Brian Vande Lune and Mike Buchheit will call the action on 92.1 KRLS.

Pella Basketball Hosts ADM Tonight

Posted: Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017 at 6:00 am

Pella returns to the hardwood tonight with a non-conference doubleheader at home against A-D-M.

The top-ranked Lady Dutch come in at 6-0, while the visiting Tiger girls are 3-5. The teams have two common opponents – Pella Christian and Ballard. Pella beat both of those teams, while A-D-M lost to each of them.

On the boy’s side, Pella is 5-1 and A-D-M is 3-3. Each squad lost a close game to Pella Christian and beat Ballard. Little Dutch coach Mark Core says that the Tigers’ style is very similar to theirs.

“They’re a very perimeter oriented team. I guess I’d call them five guards even though technically a couple of them are more forward type players. They definitely play well on the perimeter and they’re scrappy on defense.”

Tonight’s doubleheader starts at 6:00 at Pella High School. Join Trevor Castle and Mike Buchheit for the live play-by-play, beginning with pregame coverage at 5:45, on 92.1 KRLS.
