Lady Lions lose in final seconds

LOOGOOTEE - The Loogootee varsity girl’s team lost to South Central 49-48, in a game that came down to the final seconds.

The Lions fell just short of beating South Central after a strong defensive effort kept the Lions from scoring in the final 20 seconds of the game at Jack Butcher Arena on Friday afternoon.

After trailing 5-0 in the first quarter the Lions fought back and went into halftime tied with the Rebels at 23.

“We struggled early with shots,” said Loogootee coach Chad Wade. “We could have had a bigger lead at halftime, and again we were battling from behind most of the game which is difficult to do with a young team.”

Despite having to battle from behind for the majority of the game, the Lions were able to get within two points of the Rebels in the final minute and a half of play. A Loogootee foul then put the Rebels up by four after two free throws.

The Lions then worked their way down court, passing to senior Taylor Hayes who scored three points on a fade away. Loogootee then forced a turn over when a South Central player traveled near Loogootee’s offensive end.

“We did a lot of silly things down the stretch,” said South Central head coach Randall Schoen. “We should have taken better care of the ball. It seemed like at one point we didn’t want to win the game. We were lucky to come away with a win.”

The Lions however were not able to capitalize and turned the ball over on the pass in. However, a strong defensive effort by the Lions and missed free throws by the Rebels gave Loogootee the ball back with about 20 seconds left in the game and trailing South Central by one point.

When the time out ended, the Lions attempted to drive through the paint but were blocked under the basket. The ball was passed to senior Christina Ziegler, who had 20 points for the night, but who was quickly covered by multiple Rebels and was unable to get a shot off before the buzzer.
