Friday night’s game saw the ladies start in a close battle with the Lady Cougars. At the end of the first quarter, the Musketeers were up 13 – 12. The second quarter was just as close. With a little over a second left in the half, the score was deadlocked at 25. Coach McBride called a timeout and drew up a play that the girls executed with perfection. Kendra Sill drained a three from the corner and the Musketeers headed to the locker room with a 28-25 lead.
The second half started with a flurry of Eastern points. They outscored the Cougars 15 – 9 and entered the fourth quarter with a nine point lead. Unfortunately, the final period was plagued with turnovers and an inability to score. The Cougars outscored the Musketeers 19 – 7. The game ended with the Musketeers having a chance to make a three to tie the game that wouldn’t go in.
The Ladies were led in scoring by Kendra Sill with 14, and Shelbi Patton and McKenna Jeter each with 11.
Tonight’s game with Austin has been postponed until January. The Ladies will be in action next Friday November 20 against Sale
