DUNKERTON – Clarksville’s girls’ basketball team held a 29-27 lead against then-Class 1A No. 4 Dunkerton as late as a few minutes to go in this Iowa Star game at Dunkerton.

But a steal, basket, and-one for the Raiders’ Carli Tiesinger put them ahead for good in this eventual 34-31, low-scoring tilt on Tuesday, Dec. 19.

Dunkerton hit its free throws down the stretch to seal it.
