Tuesday evening, the Sanford-Fritch Lady Eagles met a tough, ready-to-play Spearman Lynxxettes team at home for a shot tying in first place for district.
But the Lynxxettes werenâ€™t having any of that, from start of the game. The momentum was never in the Lady Eagles favor, starting off trailing after quick 6-0 Spearman run. S
pearman controlled the boards, effectively, which kept Sanford-Fritch from any second shots. A couple of sparks led by Christa White and Jacy Judd wouldnâ€™t be enough to turn the game.
First quarter ended with Sanford-Fritch trailing, 9-16.
The second quarter wasnâ€™t much better for the Lady Eagles. Too many missed free-throws, lack of rebounding and excessive fouling cost the game. Halftime had Spearman up by 18.
Third quarter was the Lady Eagles best quarter productively, scoring 15.
These points were mostly from sophomore Mikala Setliff at the free-throw line. Sanford-Fritch again behind ending at quarter 32-54.
The last quarter the Lady Eagles slowed the Lynxxettes offensive attack down but fell short losing 41-65. The Lady Eagles will travel to Bushland Friday looking to get back on win streak.
