Lady Tigers at Archie

The Lady Tigers traveled to Archie Tuesday night for the first conference game of the season. The Lady Whirlwinds came out offensively on fire. Shooting from all over they took a quick first quarter lead 15-6. In the second quarter the Tigers regrouped and were able to cut into Archie’s lead and trailed by five at the half 16-21. In the 3rd quarter the Lady Tigers were patient and played better defense and worked the ball inside to take a 29-27 lead into the fourth. The last quarter saw Archie make several offensive runs and expand their lead to as much as eight points but the Tigers alway seemed to make a comeback. Archie held a 2 point lead with 10 seconds left and shooting a free throw, with a miss the Tigers got the rebound and took a timeout. With their offense set the Tigers were able to get off a shot with about 3 seconds left , the shot didn’t go down but with an offensive rebound the Tigers had one last chance but the shot failed to drop and the Lady Tigers lost 40-42. Too many turnovers hurt Rich Hill and the girls were not able to overcome the deficit of the first quarter. The Lady Tigers dropped to 0-1 in the conference and 8-6 for the season.
