Zaleski Sports


MOSINEE – Wisconsin Rapids ended the game on an 8-1 run and handed Mosinee its first loss of the season, winning a nonconference girls basketball game 60-57 on Thursday night at Mosinee High School.


Mosinee led 56-52 before Megan Clary made one of two free throws on consecutive possessions to cut it to two with 1:52 remaining in the game.


After Mosinee’s Claire Selenske made a free throw, Ella Bruns scored inside for the Raiders to make it 57-56 with 1:03 to go.


Wisconsin Rapids forced a turnover and Bruns was fouled retrieving the loose ball with 44.2 seconds left. She calmly sank both free throws to put the Raiders on top 58-57.


Following a missed shot by Mosinee, Bruns made two more free throws to push the Raiders lead to three.


Mosinee missed a 3-pointer on its next possession, and a half-court shot at the buzzer following a missed free throw from Rapids.


Megan Clary finished with 22 points and Chelsea King added 12 for Wisconsin Rapids, which improves to 13-8 this season.


Kate Fitzgerald scored 15 points, Jessica Maurer had 11 and Adalyn Lehman chipped in 10 for Mosinee, which drops to 21-1.


“The message coming in was to handle their pressure, their full-court and half-court was going to be intense,” Wisconsin Rapids coach Mitch Wolding said. “I think our girls handled it really well. They got out of their full-court press for a while, which was good for us. We knew if we could handle the pressure we would be in the game.”


Wisconsin Rapids plays a Wisconsin Valley Conference game at Wausau East on Friday.


Mosinee hosts Freedom for a nonconference game Tuesday. The game will be live-streamed at zaleskisports.com.
