FARINA – Better numbers than they’ve seen in years, the South Central Lady Cougars took the to floor and for the first time in years could actually practice 5-on-5.
Coach Gary Kapper features 14 varsity players including 6 freshmen. “It’s a plus just having those numbers,” said Kapper. “we can rotate kids in and out and keep them fresh.”
CHBC jumped out to a 12-0 lead early before Alannah Sigrist hit the first Lady Cougar’s bucket of the season with less than a minute to go in the opening quarter.
SC would trail by as many as 22-8 before a rally saw them cut the deficit to 10 before CHBC hit buckets down the stretch to finish off SC 39-26.
“We need to work on our defense and get our motion offense going , but this is something to build on,” added Kapper.
SC will host North Clay on Thursday night.
