“We started out strong and got on a good run, but then the girls allowed the physical play of Fulton City to stop their momentum. That is why they made a run against us in the second quarter,” Breckel said. “We tried to play man-to-man defense during this game which we have not done much of this year. It gave us a good opportunity to work on our skills. I am very pleased that the girls earned a win. That always helps motivate them to keep coming back to the gym and working hard.”
— Trigg traveled to Livingston Central where they suffered a 73-30 smashing, shooting just 21 percent from the field and a dismal 9-for-26 from the charity stripe.
Boyd led Trigg with eight points and seven rebounds, while Acree added six and seven boards. Audrey Futrell was 2-for-3 from the field for five points.
“This game was a tough loss for the girls. You always want to do well in your district games and things just did not go our way. Myself and the other coaches are trying to teach the girls about the fire and desire to win in the game of basketball,” Breckel said. “When a team makes a run on you the team has to come together and fight back. We are really stressing this with our younger girls and hopefully it will spread to the upper grades. Livingston has worked hard to get to the level they are at right now. We are going in that direction. If the girls will dedicate to learning the game of basketball they will be successful. You will see some good things from the 18 girls that we have playing with us right now.”
