Emily Menzel (24) and Laurynn Ruppenthal (12) of Stockbridge battle Sheboygan Lutheran's Alexandra Stricker (21) for the ball

Throw out a three-minute span in the first half and Stockbridge played even-steven with Sheboygan Lutheran.

Unfortunately for the Indians, they can’t do that.

After holding Sheboygan Lutheran scoreless for just under five minutes to start the game, Stockbridge saw the Crusaders come alive quickly reeling off 13 unanswered points to go up 13-2 and they would go on for a 56-39 non-conference girls basketball victory in Sheboygan Wednesday night.

“We weren’t expecting a 1-3-1 zone from them,” said Stockbridge coach Nate Menzel.

“They converted our turnovers into buckets. I told our girls a 1-3-1 is something experiential. You just have to get used to it and we did. They had too many weapons.”

Stockbridge’s Maddie LeGault led all scorers with 20 points. Anna Splittgerber and Rose Hahn, who led that early uprising with the Crusaders’ first seven points, each had 14.

The highlight of the game came at the final buzzer when Sheboygan Lutheran reserve guard Julia Richardson hit a shot from half-court. She is one of four seniors and it was Senior Night at the game.

Sheboygan Lutheran improved to 8-13 overall and Stockbridge falls to 11-4.
