LAWTON - The Galva-Holstein Lady Pirates took on the ranked Lawton-Bronson team in girls' basketball play last week and fell to the Eagles, 71-36.
G-H coach Ken Slater said his team fell behind quickly by 10 points, but then played L-B tough through the remainder of the first half, after the Lady Pirates settled down. However, said Slater, "they proved to be a very difficult team to stop, as they overpowered and outplayed us."
Slater did see some positives in his team's play, but said they need to work on cutting down the unforced turnovers, and improving their rebounding, as well as "toughening up on our defensive transitions."
All in all, though, said the coach, "the girls are improving, and continuing to play hard."
Individually, Heather Joslin hit 15 points to top Galva-Holstein scoring, and both she and Brandi Wagoner snared six rebounds.
