Carsen Sajonia of Joseph Elementary School scored 18 points Jan. 28 for the girls' basketball team, which won the second of two games at Quinn Court in Enterprise.

In addition to Sajonia, Joseph also took baskets from Hailee McLure, Hannah Schaafsma and Noelle Taylor.

For Enterprise, Callyn Stewart tallied 13 points while Emily Ketscher had 6.

The night began with Enterprise victorious, 24-14. This game was even - no lead of more than a single basket - until the home team took over the fourth quarter.

Jordan Armstrong scored 8 points for Enterprise, while Gwen Nohr and Joy Warnock each had 6. Emma Hall added 4 points.

Meanwhile, Joseph used Shayna Cooper's 8 points. McKenzie Parker, Anna Rinehart and Karianne Zollman each contributed a basket.

Joseph and Enterprise simply traded the outcomes in their two doubleheaders. Each time, the home team won the first game and the visitor took Game 2.

The first meeting, Jan. 12 in Joseph at Sather Court, featured a pair of close contests. In each game, the winning team snapped a tie in the second half and used a strong fourth quarter to win.
