Area girls struggle to score

By The Herald Staff | 2/15/2014

La CYGNE — It was a tale of two halves for the Lady Eagles Friday night. The team fell on the road to Prairie View 42-34 after leading at the half 20-15. Brock Campbell, Wellsville girls basketball head coach, said his team struggled on both sides of the ball coming out of the locker room.

“I thought we played really well the first half,” Campbell said. “In the second half we just struggled to score. We only shot two free throws in the second half. We got outscored 12-2 in the third quarter. Defensively we just broke down in the second half.”

The Lady Eagles stay on the road Tuesday when they travel to play at Osawatomie. The team will have to improve its shooting in order to come out with a win, Campbell said.

“We are going to have to play well to win,” he said. “We need to step up offensively and hit some shots. It will be a tough test for us on the road.”

Wellsville (34) — Giest 7, Newhouse 7, Patton 7, Kayhill 5, Sparks 4, Coons 2.

Prairie View (42) — Diehm 23, Davis 7, Boone 6, Halaquist 4, Konitzer 2.

Iola 41, Central Heights 33

The Lady Vikings were outscored 10-4 in the second quarter Friday night on their way to a 41-33 loss at home against Iola. Scott Lane, Central Heights girls basketball head coach, said his team’s biggest struggle was shooting the ball.

“Another tough game,” Lane said. “We played good defense, but we struggled to consistently put the ball in the hoop.”

Central Heights also shot poorly from the charity strike, hitting just eight of 23 from the free-throw line.

The team travels to Anderson County Tuesday.

“We will regroup for Tuesday’s game and hopefully snap this losing streak,” Lane said.

Iola (41) —  Hoar 18, Wade 11, Driskel 4, Macha 4, Piazza 2, Lohman 2.

Central Heights (33) — Meyer 13, Markley 8, Erhart 6, Kraus 2, Hayward 2, Schaefer 2.
