Lady Eagles Fall to 71st in Opener


The lady eagles basketball team had a strong start to the game jumping out to a 14-4 run in the first quarter and striking first on the team that knocked em out of playoffs last year.  We led 14-10 at the end of the first.  71st fought back in the second and took a 3 point halftime lead.  Then they smacked us hard in the second half and we didn't fight back scoring 26 and 25 points in the 3rd and 4th quarters to our 11 and 14 points.
Felecity Havens lead the lady eagles with 17pts.  Sophia Neubauer added 12 points and Morgan Davis back from her season ended ACL injury last year added 8 points and 8 rebounds.
Final Score 71st 78, Lady Eagles 49  Overall 0-1
Hopefully the girls will bounce back tonight as we face Havelock HS.
Happy Thanksgiving
Coach Gale
