‘Razzle Dazzle’

Morton’s Lady Potters 55, East Peoria 22

I stayed home with the kitten, too cold for old folks and babies.

Assigned a spy to East Peoria High School’s gym.

Spy’s first report: “M 17-0 at mask timeout.”

“29-8 at 4:44 of 2d. Ellie VanMeenen 10 pts, Tatym Lamprecht 9, Katie Krupa 8.”

“Lots of great steals and passing.”

“Katie razzle dazzle behind the back pass to Tatym for 2. Even EP students oohed.”

(A veteran courtsider chipped in, “Bob Cousyesque.”)

“37-9 half.”

“49-11 mask break 3rd, full subs.”

“55-22 final. By quarters 21-8, 37- 9, 51-16, 55-22. Fun night.”

Morton now 15-2 for the season, 6-1 in the Mid-Illini. East Peoria is 1-13, 0-6.

Lamprecht led Morton’s scoring with 17. Krupa 16, VanMeenen 10, Graci Junis 4, Izzy Hutchinson 4, Abbey Pollard 2, Maria Lopko 2. (Two starters out. Maggie Hobson, Covid-19. Addy Engel, back injury.)
