OGDEN — The Woodward-Granger girls completed a season sweep of host Ogden Friday with a 47-33 win in WCAC play, with the Hawk boys not as fortunate in dropping their second game of the campaign to the Bulldogs, this time by a 63-59 final. Ogden had won the Dec. 18 boys game, 58-46, with the Hawk girls a 49-33 winner in the first game that night.

W-G (4-10, 4-7) was off quickly in the first game Friday, racing to a 14-4 lead after one period and entering the locker room with a 27-12 advantage, which helped assure the win.

Ava Petersen had 13 points for the Hawks to lead all scorers, with Grace Deputy and Jenna Achenbach scoring eight points apiece for the guests. Darby Nixon, Makenzie Dresback, and Rian Jamison each provided five points, with Faith Kuehl contributing three.

Deputy had nine rebounds, three steals and four blocked shots, with Nixon providing eight assists and three steals while Dresback had four thefts and Achenbach five boards.

Reagan Church had nine points and 10 caroms for Ogden (0-14, 0-10), with Kaleigh Badker adding six points. Joelle Consier and Emma Moorman scored five points apiece and Lillie Ferguson and Katelyn Ellils four each for the Bulldogs.

The boys game was a nip-and-tuck affair, with Ogden leading only 12-9 after one quarter and 27-25 after two. The narrow margin slipped to three points, at 44-41, with three quarters complete, with the Hawks unable to overcome the deficit.

Carter Moran had 14 points, Worth Henry 10, Coby Peters and Brody Nardini nine apiece and Trevor Simmons eight for W-G. Seven points from Dylan Backe and two from Walker Deputy capped the Hawk attack.

Nardini had eight rebounds, six assists and three steals, with Backe tallying five assists and five steals while Peters had five boards and three rejections.

Ty Heeren (16), Noah Lingren (11), Lane Snedden (10) and Kolby Moorman (10) led the home team. Jack Christensen added eight points, Abraham Christensen five, Jacob Samuelson two and Payton Van Sickle one.
