Lady Hornets suffer at hands of Lady Cyclones

The Pine Bluffs Lady Hornets let in a blustery wind courtesy of the Southeast Lady Cyclones Saturday night and suffered a biting 21-58 loss to the visitors.

“We struggled defensively against Southeast,” Pine Bluffs coach Lindsey Forbes said. “We didn’t move the ball well or play team defense. But you have to give Southeast credit, they played hard and shot the ball well.”

Indeed of the 12 players on the Southeast bench only two were scoreless on the night. They were 47 percent in the paint and 65 percent at the charity stripe.

Pine Bluffs top scorer was Andrea Baker. She put 12 points on the board, connecting one of four three-pointers, and was a perfect five of five at the line.

“We need to get back to basics and play team defense,” Forbes said. “The girls know we can’t give up 60 points and win many ball games. But, it’s a long season and you can’t panic or get frustrated.”

“Coach Gilbert and I believe in these girls and we will continue to improve,” Forbes added.

The Lady Hornets were unable to travel to Guernsey on Friday due to the winter storm that passed through. The game has been rescheduled for Feb. 12. Only the varsity will play.

Pine Bluffs is preparing to host rival Burns on Saturday. Game times are set for 1 and 2:30 p.m.
