Though they only played one game last, week, the North Lake girl’s basketball team had a smashing success at Gilchrist, winning 37-13.
Like the boy’s team, the North Lake girl’s coach, Tracey Fivecoat, says the team is still a little weak offensively.
“The girls need to score, they’re missing a lot of opportunities,” she said.
Karrah Davidson, however, had what the coach said was her best game so far, getting open shots and driving to the basket. Fivecoat mentioned that she was working closely with Kendra Murphy throughout much of the game. “They had sort of a two-man game going,” she said.
Davidson lead the team in scoring, making 16 points between 5 field goals and 5 free throws.
Fivecoat said that the team is good about moving the ball on the offensive side, but needs more work on making shots. With their already strong defense, they were able to keep Gilchrist from scoring more than twice outside of free throws.
The coach expects the coming season to get tougher, as North Lake has already faced their league opponents at least once. “We’ve seen them and they’ve seen us, so it’s time to get to work,” said Fivecoat.
Their next games will keep them at home, playing Prospect on Friday, Jan. 24 and Paisley’s team on Saturday, Jan. 25.
