Vermilion women shut down at home

by Tom Coombe

The Vermilion Ironhawks head into a long holiday break looking to regroup.

Competing with only six players, the community college women’s basketball team picked up only one win during the nonconference portion of the season, which ended with an 82-26 home loss to Minnesota West on Dec. 8.

Because of finals week and the holiday season, Vermilion won’t play again until division play opens in early-January.

Minnesota West (10-2), one of the top teams in the southern half of the Minnesota College Athletic Conference, had no trouble with the Ironhawks last weekend.

The nationally-ranked Bluejays held the Ironhawks to only 12 first-half points and a 19.6 percent shooting performance for the game.

Vermilion also turned the ball over 19 times.

Leading 30-12 at the beak, the Bluejays poured on in the third, adding 31 points to salt things away.

Three Minnesota West players scored in double digits, with Dasia Potter netting 22 points to lead the way. Skyla Petersen and Hattie DeVries combined for another 29 for the winners, who also outrebounded Vermilion 57-27.

Vermilion’s Trina Roberts was her team’s top scorer with 10 points, while Ce Ce Bradford added eight points, six rebounds and a pair of assists. Sophia Moron also had four points.

The Ironhawks kick off a 12-game division slate Jan. 6 at Northland, with the first home division tilt on Jan. 13.
