7th grade girls fall to South Callaway
November 27, 2012Hallsville High School
from Coach Josh Lancaster
Last night we hosted the South Callaway Bulldogs in a rematch of the 1st game from this season 4 weeks ago. We've shown a lot of improvement since then as that first match-up resulted in a 27-8 loss. We doubled our scoring output from the first game in the 1st quarter as we raced out to a 16-5 lead.
From there, South Callaway started chipping away at our lead outscoring us 5-0 in the 2nd quarter as we lead 16-10 at halftime. They outscored us again 9-5 in the 3rd quarter as we clung to a 21-19 lead going into the 4th quarter and unfortunately we never were able to rally and hold together our 1st quarter momentum as we ended the game on the losing side of a 28-25 game.
Missed lay-ups combined with struggles ball handling and rebounding plagued us the final 3 quarters (mental notes for coach of things to continue working on at practice), but these girls have come a long way this season from where we started as we continue to build and improve each step of the way. We're just looking to develop more consistency in the things we do well.
We have 3 days of practice before a 3rd & final meeting with the North Callaway Thunderbirds at home on Friday night at 6:00 pm in the West Gym.
Thank you to all who came out to support the MS and JV programs last night and we appreciate all the support you continue to give us throughout the season!
