The Meskwaki Warriors girls basketball team won three games last week after its previous win streak was snapped at home by Grundy Center.

The Warriors fell to the Spartans, 78-60, on Jan. 19. Since that loss, the Warriors have won three-straight home games to improve to 18-2 on the season.

On Jan. 22, Meskwaki defeated North Tama 64-48. The Warriors jumped out to a 17-8 advantage after the first quarter before maintaining a nine-point lead, 35-26, at halftime.

Meskwaki's girls team put the game away in the third quarter. The Warriors offense continued to roll and its defense stepped up as they outscored North Tama 16-7. It was the second time Meskwaki defeated North Tama this season.

The Warriors beat Don Bosco last Friday by a score of 68-32. They continued their winning streak on Saturday by defeating Clarksville 71-53. Another strong first half helped the Warriors build a big lead. They led 34-22 at the break after outscoring Clarksville by nine in the opening quarter.

However, Clarksville more than doubled its first half total in the third quarter. Clarksville scored 29 points to Meskwaki's 10 as the lead was cut to two points. Then Meskwaki locked down defensively and held Clarksville to only two points in the final quarter, while it scored 18 to win the game by 18 points.

Meskwaki's girls team is scheduled to host AGWSR on Monday for its regular season finale. In the Class 1A regional, Meskwaki has earned a first-round bye. The Warriors will play the winner of the game between English Valleys and H-L-V at 7 p.m. Feb. 12.
