The Blackford Lady Bruins got off slow down 11-4 after 1 quarter and 35-6 at halftime. The Lady Bruins played better in the second half, but the deficit was to large to come back losing with a final score of 58-20.

Coach Mitch Waters said, “Tough loss tonight, because we really have felt like we have been making some strides as a team. We came out kind of flat in the first quarter, but not terrible. Then the second quarter we didn’t have an answer defensively allowing them to score 24 in the second period alone. We have to do a better job controlling the basketball to limit turnovers. A lot of their points were off of simple steals reading the passing lane and making layups. On a positive note, we “won” the 3rd quarter at 10-9 and kept the game pretty much where it was after the first half. Our girls never give up and that is a quality you can’t teach!”
