GRAFTON—The Grafton High School girls basketball team played host to the Lewis County Minute-maids last Friday night, at Scotty Hamilton Gymnasium.
Ally Peters had a game-high 19 points, but it was not enough for the Lady Cats, as they lost to Lewis 57—40.
The Lady Bearcats out played Lewis in the first quarter, as they found themselves up one when the first quarter horn sounded.
In the second quarter, the wheels fell off the bus for the Bearcats, as they were outscored 21 to 10.
Then, as the half-time buzzer sounded, the Cats found themselves down 32—22.
The second half was more of the same for the Bearcats, as they could manage 18 points, but allowed Lewis to score 25.
The Bearcats did have a “bright-spot” at the end of the game, as they only allowed Lewis two points in the final four minutes.
“I was proud of the girls and the effort they gave at the end of the game,” said coach Andrew Moore. “We just need to find away to get that effort for four quarters,” he added.
Peters led the Cats with 19 points, which almost accounted for half of the Bearcat points.
The remaining Cats in the scoring column were Bronlie Jacobs (4), Jocelyn Countryman (4), Hannah Taylor (3), Tiffany Bolyard (2), Brooklyn Teeple (1) and Bailey Toothman (7).
The JV’s were also in action as they fell to Lewis 49—27.
The scoring for the Cats came from Tori Jackson (8), Megan Kisner (3), Hailey Skiles (2), Kassidy Simmons (2), Bailey Toothman (2), Tiffany Bolyard (4), Brooklyn Teeple (3) and Jocelyn Countryman (3).
The GHS girls will be back in action on Thursday as they travel to Preston County. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 for JV and 7:30 for varsity.
