Short-handed Lady Comanches fall to Booker in District 1-1A play

January 28, 2012

In spite of having only six players to start the game, and ending with just foUr on the floor, the Lady Comanches put up a valiant effort in a losing battle to Booker 47-26. The rest of the team was either hurt or at the County LIve Stock Show last night. Two of the girls fouled out in the last 10 seconds of the game, leaving four players on the floor. The girls were exhausted the fourth quarter and I give kudos to Sarah Kelly, Katelyn Wilson, Madison Heston, Alyssa Snider, Abby Summers, and Devin DeLapp for their heart.
It took a quarter for the girls to get warmed up. Summers sank a three and Wilson went 1-2 at the line for WT’s only points in the first. They had a decent second quarter with eleven points. Snider hit a trey, Wilson and Heston each had a bucket, and DeLapp made to field goals. They trailed just 20-15 at the half.
Kelly, Heston, and Wilson all made buckets in the third. Wilson also was 1-2 at the line. In spite of the odds against them, the girls were still in the game trailing by ten 32-22. Unfortunately, they ran out of gas in the final period and made numerous turnovers. It didn’t take long for the game to get out of hand. Kelly had the only score for WT with two field goals and Booker added fifteen to their total.
Again, hats off to the girls for giving it all they had. The loss leaves the Lady Comanches still winless in District play.
