The Ozaukee High School girls’ basketball team had mixed results last week.

In their best game of the season so far, the Warriors edged visiting Milwaukee Riverside, 56-54, Dec. 3 in a nonconference match-up.

Last Thursday, Ozaukee dropped a 59-47 game to a tough Lady Dutch team in Oostburg.

In their third game in five days, the Warriors lost, 64-55, loss to visiting St. Mary Central.

Ozaukee coach Tim Wolff was more than pleased with his team’s effort against Milwaukee Riverside.

“I thought we played our best game of year,” he said.

“I was really was proud of the effort that Izzy Clark, Gabby Klas and Cami Miller did on rebounding.”

Miller finished with nine points and nine rebounds. Clark and Gabby Klas both pulled down seven boards.

“I was also pleased with the ball-handling skills and handling the pressure by Becca (Schauer),” Wolff said.

Schauer, a senior point guard, led the Warriors with 20 points and added six steals and four assists.

Gabby Klas finished with 19 points, including three long-range baskets. She had 14 points at the break.

“Gabby had some big three-pointers in the first half of the game,” Wolff said.

Riverside was led by Tania Simpson with 10 points. Sidney Schruggs, Trinity Simpson and Shauna Mixon-Boyd each scored nine points.

When the Warriors met Oostburg, Wolff knew they were up against a talented team.

The Lady Dutch proved to be aggressive around the basket.

“We got out-rebounded and gave up way too many second-chance opportunities,” Wolff said.

“We had some decent outside shooting, but we have to be better at rebounding.”

There were stretches in the game where the Lady Dutch got five or six straight rebounds.

The Warriors sank nine three-point shots, led by the Klas sisters.

Gabby Klas connected on four attempts from beyond the arc, while Greta hit on three.

Gabby Klas led the Warriors with 16 points. Schauer scored 12, grabbed five rebounds, made three steals and dished out five assists. Greta Klas scored nine and Clark added seven.

 The Warriors were noticeably tired on Saturday when St. Mary Central visited Fredonia.

“I was very disappointed in our overall effort. I feel like we should be the better team there,” Wolff said.

“I have to give them credit because they played well. They executed and we didn’t.Maybe three games in five days were too much. As a coach, I’m going to have to do a better job of getting them prepared.”

Schauer finished with 19 points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals.

Miller was one rebound away from a double-double. She had 11 points and nine rebounds.

Greta Klas scored seven points. Clark grabbed seven rebounds.

The Warriors’ defense could do little to slow down Jaydin Vosters, who finished with 30 points. Her teammates Chloe Vogel scored 11 and Rosie Butler had 10.

The Warriors fell to 2-3 overall and 0-3 in the Big East Conference.

Ozaukee hosted Manitowoc Lutheran Monday. On Thursday, the Warriors will play at Sheboygan Lutheran. On Dec. 17, they will host Kohler.
