After dominating the season with a 26-3 record, the Falls City Beaverettes had high hopes of making it all the way to the state championship game. On March 3, Falls City played the Martin’s Mill Lady Mustangs in the state semifinals in the Frank Erwin Cener on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. Although the Beaverettes put up a tough fight, the Lady Mustangs came out on top 49-31 and advanced to the state championship.

The first quarter started off with a bang for the Beaverettes, as they took control of the tip-off and Kelsi Salziger scored the first 3 points right off the bat. Both teams played aggressive defense and the score remained close throughout the quarter, which ended with the Lady Mustangs leading 16-14.

During the second quarter, Chelsey Stolle immediately tied the game in the first few seconds. Ashleigh Blocker played solid defense with steal after steal, allowing the Beaverettes to keep the score close in the first few minutes of the quarter. The Lady Mustangs began to pull ahead, however, and it appeared the Beaverettes were beginning to lose steam. The Lady Mustangs were ahead 34-26 at halftime.

The third quarter brought a rough start for the Beaverettes as the Lady Mustangs stole the ball right away and continued to steal for the majority of the quarter. The Beaverette defense double-teamed the Lady Mustangs, but was unable to keep them from scoring. The Lady Mustangs sank buckets one after another and were ahead by 12 points at the end of the third quarter.

By the top of the fourth quarter, the Beaverettes had begun to slow down. The Lady Mustangs held onto possession of the ball throughout most of the quarter. They continued to play a passing game and the Beaverettes were forced to foul in order to regain control of the ball. The majority of the points scored by the Lady Mustangs in the fourth quarter came from free throws.

The Lady Mustangs continued to run out the clock and the game ended in a 49-31 win for the Lady Mustangs, sending them on to the state championship game.

Salziger led the scoring for Falls City with 14 points, and Stolle added another 8. Tiffany Dziuk scored 4 points, Camari Crawford and Blocker helped with 2 points each, and Kayla Kotara sank a free throw to add to the total.

The Beaverettes can be proud of a season which saw them go unbeaten in district play and win postseason games over Johnson City Johnson, Mason, Thrall, and Snook.

Throughout the game, the team never lost the support of its fans, who filled the stadium with blue and cheered the girls on to the end.

Falls City will lose seven seniors, but can look to the future with a strong supporting cast of players who will bring in experience and enthusiasm next season.
