That's what New Haven’s win over Chamois, 44-30, would have sounded over the air waves as New Haven’s offense was more like an army coming from all directions.

Emily Kallmeyer scored a team high 12 points, seven of them coming in the last three minutes of the first quarter after Chamois scored the first seven points.

Monday night was the second time in five days New Haven and Chamois crossed paths.  Last week Chamois easily defeated the Lady Rocks by 18 in the Hermann Tournament but Monday it was New Haven on top as they knocked of the lady Pirates by 14 points, 44-30.

New Haven trailed 13-9 after the first eight minutes when Stephanie Scheer came off the bench to begin the second quarter and New Haven’s offensive onslaught.

Scheer hit a jumper to bring New Haven within two, 13-11, and Less than a minute later, Scheer stepped back a few feet, sinking a three to give New Haven the lead, 14-13.

After Scheer scored five straight then it was Kayla Meyer who ended the half scoring five straight points, which led New Haven out scoring Chamois 26-8 after Megan Shockley banked one in as time expired to end the third quarter, 35-21.

“Stephanie [Scheer] came in hit shoots, Kayla Meyer, and Emily Kallmeyer really played well. It takes a lot of pressure off other players when everyone is looking to score.  They are all good shooters and tonight hopefully gave the girls some confidence shooting in games,” coach Doug Peirick said after the game.”

Over the past three months New Haven has seen several girls improve their game to the point of consistently playing well game after game.  “Kayla [Meyer] has really come on strong, especially on the defensive end with rebounding and offensively has been posting up and our guards are doing a better job of looking inside.”

Monday was a must win for the lady Shamrocks as they enter into conference play, leading up to districts, which are less than four weeks away but a lot of basketball to be played.

New Haven will travel to Elsberry on Saturday night for a 6 p.m. start time.  Monday they will host Sullivan who is 2-0 in conference and 16-2 overall.
