Huss, Yung lead SE girls

WEBSTER CITY – Firing on all cylinders, the sixth-ranked (Class 2A) St. Edmond girls basketball team easily stayed unbeaten Tuesday night.

The Gaels (5-0 overall, 5-0 in the NCC) trounced Webster City by a 63-24 final in North Central Conference action.

“I thought we came out and played one of our best first halves of the year,” said SEHS head coach Scott Messerly. “We needed to play better after the Algona game, which we were able to do (St. Edmond earned a 59-47 home victory over the Bulldogs on Friday).”

Junior Anna Yung delivered 25 points and six assists for the Gaels, while senior Alli Huss added 22 points and seven rebounds. Yung and Huss combined to go 19-for-23 from the field.

Jaci Stumpf, another junior, dished out 12 assists for SEHS. Freshman Megan Flattery also grabbed five boards.

“Webster City sat in a 2-3 zone (defensively) all night, which allowed us to get into the seams for a lot of layups,” Messerly said. “The second half just went so fast because of the running clock, but I was really proud of how our girls played.”

For the Lynx (0-6, 0-5), Cassidy Bultena led the way with seven points.

Dating back to the 2008-09 campaign, the Gaels have now prevailed nine straight times against Webster City.

Next game for St. Edmond is Friday when it hosts Iowa Falls-Alden (2-5, 2-2).
