Emily Kallmeyer was nails down the stretch hitting 5 of 6 free throws in the final 40 seconds.

New Haven, Mo. - In Thursday night’s game at Cuba it was obvious New Haven had not played in three weeks thanks to winter storms that forced their first two games to be cancelled following the Christmas break.

“You could really tell that we had not played in 21 days.  We were not sharp on offense, to many tipped passes, and slow in defense.  It didn’t that we missed several practices during the layoff either”, said Coach Doug Peirick. 

New Haven got off to a slow start as Cuba jumped out to an 8-3 lead, before Kayla Meyer scored a layup at 3:32 mark.  While New Haven held Cuba scoreless during the rest of the first quarter, Stephanie Scheer hit a 17-footer, making it a one point game, 8-7.
