A lack luster offensive first quarter doomed Woodward-Granger’s girls’ basketball team from recording their first West Central Activities Conference win.
The Hawks (2-12, 0-10) couldn’t get things going offensively in the first quarter where they scored just three points against the visiting Lions’ (10-4, 7-2) 14.
At home on Jan. 12, things got a little better for the Hawks in the second quarter when they broke the double digit barrier with 11 points but the Lions increased their 11 point lead to 17 after scoring 17.
It was a closer ball game in the third quarter as both team traded baskets with the home team finishing two better at 14-12.
Offensive woes returned for the road team who finished off the final eight minutes with six points against 14 from the Lions for a final 59-32 result.
W-G’s Katelyn Scharlau led the team in points with 11 on a perfect 4-for-4 night from the field. She also led the team in rebounds with 10 of the total 28- 17 defensive and 11 offensive.
As a team the Hawks shot 12-of-33 from the floor including 1-of-5 from three and finished 7-of-14 from the free throw line. They recorded seven assists (3-Kayley Dresback), 12 steals (6- Alyssa Bice) and one block from Lia Pitman.
