IPSWICH – Aberdeen Christian used a balanced scoring attack to grab a 58-24 Lake Region Conference girls’ basketball win over Ipswich Tuesday night.

The fifth-rated Knights improved to 15-2 on the season with the victory.

Christian held the Tigers scoreless in the opening quarter en route to the win.

“I thought we played a really good game,” said Christian coach Michael Rohrbach. “Our press helped us get off to a good start and we moved the ball really well on offense.”

Mallory Miller finished with 21 points and eight rebounds to lead the victory. The Knights received at least five points from six different players in the contest.

Joy Rohrbach and Hanna Miller each scored seven points, Chloe Bosma followed with six, and Kaylee Block and Chloe Holt each added five.

Katie Bierman topped Ipswich with 13 points.

Christian, which has now won four in a row, faces second-rated Corsica-Stickney during the DWU Classic at Salem on Friday. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. The Knights face top-rated Aberdeen Roncalli next week.

“We have a tough stretch coming up, so it’s important that we’re playing our best and playing the right way,” Coach Rohrbach said, “and I definitely think we’re doing that.”

Rohrbach said his team is excited about Friday’s contest.

“We know that Corsica-Stickney is a very good team. They have five players who can score the ball, so we’ll have our work cut out for us, but we’re really excited for the opportunity to play them,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity for our girls to play in a classic and see how we can compete against one of the best teams in the state.”
