Sometimes when your offense is not clicking the defense must carry the load and that is exactly what the Wabash Lady Apaches did Thursday. Playing Culver at Grace College the Lady Apaches had a hard time finding the bucket, but the defense was stifling to defeat Culver 48-18.
Even though the offense struggled the first quarter the Lady Apaches controlled the game from the start. Sabrina Wagner sandwiched a three pointer between to Bailey Youkum buckets to lead 7-0 after one. Wabash would pick up the pace some in the second quarter. Youkum would get a bucket off an Abby Vinopal assist that started an 8-2 run to increase the Wabash lead to 15-2. Culver would score 6 of the next 8 points to make it 17-8 when Carmen Higdon hit a free throw, followed by a bucket from Chelsea Archer to lead 20-8 at the half.
The third quarter would be all Wabash as they out scored Culver 17-3 to lead 37-11 after three. The Lady Apaches had four different players score with Bailey Youkum leading the way with 9 points. The domination would continue to start the fourth quarter as Tabitha Wagner scored 4 points during a 6-0 run as Wabash went on to win 48-18.
Bailey Youkum led Wabash with 20 points. Carmen Higdon added 6, Jaycee Parrett 6, Tabitha Wagner 6, Sabrina Wagner 3, Tristin Vigar 3, Abby Vinopal 2, Chelsea Archer 2.
