“That’s an amazing start,’’ said Fowler, who had just three points to go along with three assists and six steals.
Rademacher said that Fowler is basically the team’s “Energizer bunny.”
“She makes things happen out there,’’ he said. “She is quick and she anticipates well. We wouldn’t be where we are without her.’’
Fowler admitted that playing in last week’s Blue Devil Classic at Bismarck-Henning was good for the Patriots.
“It helped us a lot with the practice and learning about our team,’’ she said. “But there were so many games, that we were wore out.
“But overall, I feel like that experience helped us tonight. We knew what we had to do and we did it.’’
Synesael was the only Seeger player in double figures with 18 points, but the Patriots did get points from nine of its 11 players against the Mustangs.
“It was good to get the players, No. 8 through 11, some real quality minutes in a game like this,’’ Rademacher said. “That will not only help us this season, but it should help our program next year and the year after.’’
Williams, a freshman, recorded another double-double for Fountain Central with 13 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. Williams scored 11 of her 13 points in the second half but the Mustangs never got closer than 18 points against the Patriots. Also scoring in double figures for the Mustangs was junior Morgan Grubb with 12.
Today’s action moves to Covington High School with the girls consolation game between Fountain Central and Covington tipping off at 12:30 p.m. (Eastern) and the championship game between Seeger and Attica is tentatively set to start at 3:30 p.m. The start times have been moved up two hours because of the impending Winter Storm Ion.
