Four consecutive single digit quarters coupled with the Earlham Cardinals’ offensive presence gave the Woodward-Granger girls’ basketball team their seventh consecutive loss and kept them winless in the West Central Activities Conference.
At home on Feb. 2, the Hawks (3-18, 0-15) suffered their 15th straight conference loss in a 60-23 game versus the Cardinals (15-5, 10-5).
In the first quarter the home team couldn’t find their offensive rhythm as they were held to just three points while the visitors scored 14.
It was a closer ball game before halftime. Led by their defense the Hawks kept the Cardinals to eight points but could not cut the deficit when they finished with six.
A 13-point deficit ballooned to 30 points after the road team’s offense outscored the Hawks 25-8 for a commanding 47 to 17 lead. The fourth quarter played out a little closer with a 13-6 Cardinals’ run.
As a team the Hawks finished 6-of-32 from the field including 1-for-2 from beyond the arc and 10-for-23 from the line. Junior Kayley Dresback led the squad in points with seven.
The team totaled 26 rebounds - 18 defensive and eight offensive (senior Katelyn Peters- 6), three assists, seven steals (Dresback-3) and two steals from Peters.
The team headed to Guthrie on Feb. 6, for a conference showdown against the AC/GC Chargers.
