“We had a real slow start offensively,” Brock Campbell, Wellsville head girls basketball coach, said. “We had some mental breakdowns.”

Several players had a hand in the Lady Eagles’ fourth-quarter push, including Emily Newhouse and Grace Graniewski, who put up six points each in the final quarter.

Wellsville (2-6) stays at home Saturday for a showdown with Chase County.

POMONA — West Franklin couldn’t overcome an early hole as they dropped to 2-6 with a 57-24 loss at home to Chase County. Struggles early in the game were the Lady Falcons’ downfall, head coach Kyle Conley said.

“We dug a deep hole early,” Conley said. “We were down 11 at the half. For whatever reason we just struggled to play early. The kids work hard, but we just had a tough time hitting some shots and making adjustments.”

Emily Reed led the team with 10 points.
