The East girls’ basketball lost last week to Station Camp 30-11 in a game that felt a lot closer than the score resembled. The East girls still searching for their first win on the season kept this game close, but a few too many costly mistakes and not converting on enough shots led to the Bison running away with this game.
“Our girls are playing so much better on the defensive side of the ball in comparison to the beginning of the season, we just need to be better on offense, “Head Coach Scott Steinbrecher stated. East was down just 7-4 after the first quarter, but the Bison kept the Panthers scoreless in the second quarter and went into the half with a 16-4 lead.
“Our girls are working so hard in practice and getting better every game they play, we need to continue to improve on our shot selection and convert on the shots we are taking,” Steinbrecher commented.
Portland has been a team that has struggled in the second half of almost every game this year “We have been in every game this year at the half, but we just can’t carry that momentum out into the second half,” Steinbrecher stated
“I am super impressed with how much the girls have improved this season so far. We have a lot of work left to do, but the girls will not quit,” Steinbrecher replied.
Leading the Lady Panthers in scoring for the game was Madison Hall with 8 points and Eme Loza with 3.
“We will work hard in practice on our offense and encourage the continued defensive success, I feel like this is a talented group of girls that need just a little more work,” Steinbrecher commented.
