Lady Warriors thump Western Brown

Eastern Brown and Western Brown’s girls squads faced off in the Brown County Holiday Classic Tuesday afternoon and the Lady Broncos’ offense had a night it would rather forget.

The team scored just 10 points in the first half en route to a 44-27 loss on their home court.

Mikayla Farris and Hannah Sininger were the only two players to score for either team in the first quarter. Sininger hit a three-pointer and a two-point basket to give her five points while Farris had Eastern’s first 12 points on six field goals.

After Sininger’s scoring, however, the Lady Broncos went ice-cold. The team didn’t get another basket until Sugaree Shaffer’s two-point basket with 2:47 left in the second quarter.

Western Brown’s struggles on offense carried over into their defense. They allowed seven different Lady Warriors to score in the second quarter, as Eastern put up 20 points to take a 28-10 lead into halftime.

Things didn’t get much better in the second half, as Eastern put up 16 points behind eight from Molly Prine. Shaffer added four more points for the Lady Broncos in the third quarter.

Western Brown’s defense played much better in the fourth quarter, though by that point the Lady Warriors had turned to the bench. The Lady Broncos did not allow a point in the fourth quarter, but they mustered just seven points themselves and would lose to Eastern by 17.

Farris scored 12 straight points for the Lady Warriors but did not score the rest of the game. She also pulled in 13 rebounds for Eastern. The eight points Prine tallied in the third gave her 11 for the contest. The Lady Warriors shot 36 percent from the field.

Sininger finished with 11 points for the Lady Broncos. Shaffer added six for Western Brown and Nena Taylor scored all four of her points in the fourth quarter.

The Lady Broncos fall into the consolation game against the Georgetown Lady G-Men while Eastern advances for a rematch with the Fayetteville Lady Rockets. The Lady Warriors defeated Fayetteville at home by four earlier this month.
