Coleville girls hoops endure tough week
The Coleville girls basketball team came out flat last Tuesday and dropped a game to a scrappy Silver Stage squad, 39-35.
“Poor execution on offense really killed us,” Coleville coach Will Sandy said.
The Wolves had 39 turnovers and 17 missed free throws, 12 coming in the fourth quarter.
Fallon Frye led the Wolves with 12 points and 13 rebounds. Samantha Gall had six points, 10 rebounds, four assists and nine steals.
Coleville rebounded to defeat McDermitt 44-23 Friday for its first league victory of the season in the McDermitt tournament.
Esperanza Buehrle led the Lady Wolves with 16 points and Jolene Sam had five points, six rebounds, nine assists and seven steals. Amara Rowley came off the bench to add seven points and ended the game with five steals.
Frye led Coleville with 13 rebounds.
“This was a big win for us,” Sandy said. “We always have a tough time winning in McDermitt and we have been battling the flu all week.”
Coleville lost to a very athletic and deep Lowry junior varsity squad the next night 30-28 in the tournament championship game.
“Although we played pretty well on defense and I was pretty happy with our overall intensity, we shot only 27 percent from the field.”
Sandy said his team gave up six baskets while failing to box out and control the defensive boards.
Gall led the Wolves with 10 points and was named to the all-tournament team. Breezy Rupp came off the bench to lead the team with nine rebounds. She had a season-high six points as well. Rowley had six steals and Sam had four assists.
Coleville is 5-2 overall and 1-0 in league play.
