GREAT BEND — Moundridge’s girls get their chance to hand Central Plains and superstar guard Emily Ryan their first loss of the year tonight in the Hilltop Hoops Classic.

The Wildcats advanced to today’s 8:00 semifinals on Tuesday with a 49-34 victory over Macksville in the first round. Game information had not been available.

Bethany Stucky made 11 of 18 floor shots and 5 of 6 at the line to power the Wildcats to the win. Kourtney Kaufman and reserve Hailey Unruh just missed double figures with 9.

Moundridge sprinted to a 23-6 first-quarter lead, only to turn around and tally just 2 points in the second quarter while Macksville totaled 11. But MHS doubled Macksville 12-6 in the third quarter and had the game under control.
