February 15 vs. Eldon
We hosted the Eldon Mustangs on Saturday night. Early foul trouble put Eldon at the free throw line where they earned 15 of their 31 halftime points. We weren't able to keep pace and went into half trailing 16-31. We had a strong third quarter, but we were unable to dig ourselves out of the first half deficit. The final score was 31-61. Brooke alley led us in scoring with 9 and Hannah Ricketts added 8.
February 19 @ Southern Boone
Last night we traveled to Southern Boone. It was a low scoring first quarter, but Southern Boone pulled away in the second quarter with pressure defense that caused us to turn the ball over and not allow us many looks at the basket. We played with passion and intensity in the third quarter, winning that quarter by 2 points. Unfortunately, our improved effort and focus in the second half was not enough. We were missing a couple of key components as sickness hit the team. We were proud of the girls for not using that as an excuse and for fighting back. They played together in the second half and never quit. The final score was 27-46. Brooke Alley led us in scoring with 15 points and Courtney Cotton added 8 points.
We have our final game of the season tonight at Harrisburg. We tip off at 6 P.M. We would love to see you fill their stands for our final game! Thanks for all of your support this season!
