Stacy Skemp couldn’t help but wonder Monday what a game between her Milton program and Evansville might look like if both teams were midway through their season.

Behind 14 points from sophomore forward Maria Messling, the host Blue Devils edged the Red Hawks 45-38 in a nonconference game.

Evansville improved to 3-5 on the season in a game that was the first for Milton after the school district delayed the start of winter sports until after the first of the year.

“A couple times we lost someone on the outside. At times we did great against them and trapped them, but sometimes it came down to endurance, and we’re still building that up,” Skemp said.

“Maybe if we’re both playing our eighth game, it looks a little different. But I’m proud of the effort our girls had tonight.”

Ava Brandenburg added a dozen points for Evansville, which was up 22-19 at the half.

Sophomore guard Tressa Shaw led a balanced attack for Milton, scoring eight points.

Milton hosts Janesville Craig on Friday night.
