The Tomah High School girls basketball team made short work of La Crosse Logan Friday.

The Timberwolves unloaded for 50 points in the first half en route to an 80-36 victory at Logan High School.

Tomah improved to 7-1 overall and 2-1 in the Mississippi Valley Conference.

Logan is still looking for its first victory, and Tomah coach Mark Von Haden was happy with how his girls dictated the action.

“We forced Logan to play at our tempo, which created a lot of turnovers which turned into points,” Von Haden said.

Madison Lindauer led the Timberwolves with 27 points, 11 of which came from the foul line.

Reis Derousseau (18), Madisyn Brey (13) and Mallory Pierce (11) joined Lindauer in double figures.

Logan got 18 points from Jenna Davis.

The blowout victory allowed Von Haden to use his bench.

“We worked five-in/five-out rotations in the second half to allow our bench girls to get to play with some if our more experienced girls,” Von Haden said.

The Timberwolves return home Tuesday to host Mauston in a 7:15 p.m. nonconference game before traveling to the West Salem Tournament Dec. 27-28.
