Trotters look to keep improving


February 4, 2021

The Plains Trotters are working on turning their frustration into elation; or at least into better seeding position for the upcoming tournament.

Fresh off a tough 54-15 loss to District 14C-leading Charlo in Charlo Friday, coach Eddie Fultz and his Trotters will play Clark Fork in Superior Friday and will visit Noxon Saturday in another pair of conference games.

"This is a big week for us, we need to start thinking about seeding into our tournament," he said. "We want to put ourselves in the best possible position, and to be playing our best as we go in."

Fultz said Charlo had placed particular importance on their most recent game with the Trotters.

"(Charlo coach) Bret (Thompson) told me that they had the game with us circled on the calendar," Fultz said, "as they thought this would be one of their biggest conference games of the season."

Playing with the appropriate intensity, the unbeaten Lady Vikings, ranked No. 5 in the most recent Class C power poll, moved to the win with relative ease.

"We struggled with their pressure defense and things kind of got away from us," Fultz said. "We are continuing to work on breaking pressure defense and handling the ball better in practice."

Kimmy Curry and Kaylah Standeford scored six points each and Carlie Wagoner three for Plains in the loss to Charlo.

Charlo scoring was not available.
