POWERS, Mich. — The Stephenson girls basketball team edged North Central 65-57 on Tuesday.

Autumn Rasner scored nine of her game-high 18 points in the first quarter to help Stephenson get out to an 18-10 lead.

“Autumn is one of our senior leaders and it was really nice to see her get out to a hot start,” Stephenson coach Shanna Beal said. “She’s been scoring in double-digits lately, but she hasn’t been herself. So it was great to see her start fast because the team feeds off her.”

North Central couldn’t gain any ground after the first quarter as Stephenson kept switching its defenses and continued its strong play. In the second, third and fourth quarters each team scored 47 total points, allowing the Eagles to come away with the win.

“(The game) was a battle the whole way through,” Beal said. “I took some timeouts in some crucial moments and we switched up our defenses and the girls played a really good game. I’m proud of how everyone played tonight.”

Emily Johnson led Stephenson with a career-high 22 points and nine rebounds; Rasner had 18; Makayla Johnson added 12 and Karlee Kuntze had a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Andi Arsenault led North Central with 15 and Bri Arsenault added 14.

■ Oneida Nation girls basketball team led 27-17 at halftime and held on for a 45-33 Marinette & Oconto Conference win over Niagara on Tuesday.

Sadie Schuman had 16 points to lead Oneida Nation; M’Kenzey Ackley and Yehli Rodriguez each had 10; Alyssa House had five and Malia Jacobs added four.

Jasmine Racine led Niagara with 14 points; Jessica Oratch had eight; Cassandra Gill had six; Jaden Payette added three and Jaida Maki chipped-in two.

Carney-Nadeau had things very much their way Tuesday night in a 60-10 basketball rout of Superior Central.

Carney led 16-4 after the first quarter and 35-7 at halftime of the Skyline Central Conference outing.

“We played more disciplined tonight,” said C-N coach Kris Blahnik. “We worked on some schemes and were able to put in some girls who didn’t play in the last couple games. This was a good chance to evaluate players.”

Layla Blahnik-Thoune led the Wolves (2-1 overall and league) with 19 points and six steals. Zoey Poupore added 15 points and three assists.

C-N committed just six turnovers and the Cougars (0-4 overall and SCC) had 20.
