KINGMAN — Fresh off their 2018 Prescott Lady Badgers Winter Classic finale against the Lee Williams Volunteers, Prescott once again took to the court to face their region foe; this time on the road and in a game that counts towards both teams records.
In the first game, the Volunteers were able to capitalize off Badger turnovers and took the victory 48-42 and although Thursday night’s game was lower scoring, the Volunteers took this victory as well, 30-20. For head coach Bobbi Yoder, turnovers were an issue once again.
“(We had) too many turnovers and second chance opportunities in the second half,” coach Yoder said. “(That) along with a poor shooting percentage was our downfall tonight.”
For the Badgers, Hollie Dalton led the way with 10 points and five rebounds, accounting for half of her team’s points. Following her was fellow sophomore Kira Reily, who added six points and eight rebounds in the game.
With the loss, the Badgers fall to 7-10 on the season and 1-3 in region play. They will be back in action again on Tuesday, January 8, at 5:30 p.m., as they host crosstown-rival Bradshaw Mountain, where they will try to end their two-game losing streak.
The Volunteers have extended their winning streak to three games with their victory over Prescott, but still only sit at 1-3 in region play as well. Lee Williams will play again on Friday, January 4, at 5:30 p.m., when they host non-region opponent, River Valley.
