Lions snap 4-game skid with win over WC

LOOGOOTEE — The Loogootee girls basketball had lost four straight games since its season opening win over Shoals, but Thursday night the Lions were able to get back in the win column.

The Lions (2-4) defeated Washington Catholic (0-5) 52-35 Thursday night at Jack Butcher Arena behind 16 points and eight rebounds from senior Christina Ziegler and six points apiece from freshman Emily Brookshire and Kylie Hall.

Loogootee ran out to a 12-4 lead after the first quarter, as Ziegler scored seven points in the opening eight minutes. Both teams contributed a sloppy first half and the Cardinals struggled to find any offensive rhythm. After managing just four points in the first quarter, the Cardinals notched seven points in the second and trailed 22-11 at halftime.

“After the last game, we thought we had to get some production from some other kids and find ways to score,” said Loogootee coach Chad Wade. “Over the last week with all the snow-outs, we really had an opportunity to work on our offensive motion and get other kids involved and of course (Christina) Ziegler is always going to be the catalyst.”

The Loogootee defense was swarming for all 32 minutes, but especially in the first half when the Lion defense didn’t all Washington Catholic to convert a shot from the field. The Cardinals made 11-of-19 from the free throw line. Cardinals senior Elizabeth Perkins converted 8-of-11 attempts from the charity stripe. Washington Catholic coach Michael Hopkins thought his team played better, but still needs to find more scoring.

“I looked around and I pointed at (Elizabeth) Perkins and said, ‘yeah she got things going again in the second half — we have to have a second scorer,’” Hopkins said. “Mary Anne (Wichman) is a second scorer, but she is handling the ball, so that takes her out of the picture, because somebody has to start it and get it going.”
