CLINTONVILLE In what used to be a heated Bay Conference rivalry before this season the Shawano girls basketball team defeated Clintonville 50-18 in a non-conference game Friday night. The Truckers are playing their first season in the Valley Eight Conference this year.

The two teams got off to a very slow start only playing to a 6-6 tie after the first period. Missed shots and turnovers ruled the first period as two players led their respective teams. Kendra Wohlrabe scored all six of Clintonville's points in the period, while Shawano's Amanda Redmann scored four of the Hawks first six points. Redmann led the Hawks with 18 points, while Wohlrabe led the Truckers with 10 points.

Redmann and Darcie O'Kimosh stepped up their games in the second period combining to score Shawano's 11 second quarter points. The Shawano defense also held their own holding the Truckers to just two points in the second period to take a 17-8 lead at the half.

The second half proved to be a much better played half for the Hawks who opened the third period on a 12-1 run. Things could have been worse for the Truckers as the Hawks struggled from the foul line shooting only 9-of-18. Clintonville, on the other hand, scored three of its five third quarter points from the line to fall behind 35-13 after the third quarter.

In the fourth period Redmann and O'Kimosh continued to dominate the offensive scene closing out the game on a 11-1 run to take the 32-point win. O'Kimosh finished the game with 17 points for the Hawks.

The Hawks (6-4, 4-4) will return to Bay Conference action on Jan. 21 when they host Ashwaubenon. The Hawks lost to Ashwaubenon in their second game of the season on Nov. 23.
