After a solid pounding at the hands of Lingle-Ft Laramie Friday night the Lady Tigers responded with a home win Saturday against Hot Springs, (S.D.).
The Lady Doggers got off to a fast start with a 10-4 run and Lusk could never recover against the Wyopreps.com second ranked team in Class 1A. Lusk’s offense came to life a little in the second period, yet turnovers were a major problem. When Hailey Bruegger’s three pointer fell through just before halftime the lead was the smallest it would get all night. LFL led 24-13 at the break and hardly resembled the team that lost in Tiger Gym three weeks earlier.
NCHS managed just three points in the third quarter while the Lady Doggers extended the lead to 34-16. Lusk shooters were cold all game long and any fourth quarter comeback would be difficult against the home team. Aside from Lexie Dockery’s triple in the fourth quarter, the Lady Tigers were 0-12 from long range in the game. Free throws were also lopsided in favor of the Lady Doggers- while LFL made 21-27, NCHS was just 8-18. The teams played even keel in the final period but that wasn’t enough, as LFL won by the final score of 45-26.
