MADRID — Cold shooting continued to plague the Woodward-Granger girls cagers Friday, as host Madrid did just enough to slowly pull away throughout their WCC contest en route to posting a 50-32 victory.
Madrid (5-3, 3-3) was an unofficial 17-of-53 from the field, and while 32 percent shooting is not spectacular, it was a marked difference over the 11-of-54 outing from W-G (0-5, 0-5). The Tigers also held a decided advantage at the foul line, sinking 14-of-20 as opposed to 10-of-19 from the Hawks.
W-G scored the first two baskets of the game and appeared set to make a 10 or 12-point run but could not put the ball through the cylinder. Madrid eventually stepped up to game speed with 10 consecutive points and never looked back, playing most of the contest with at least a 10-point advantage.
“We had all kinds of decent looks (some shots were forced), but, either way, you have to make shots to win games,” W-G head coach Gary Dresback said. “That was the difference in the game. They were not tons better than us, but significantly enough to control the game.”
Mary Hansen had 10 points, 10 rebounds and two steals for W-G, with Riley Jamison providing six points and two rebounds and Riley Kirton four points and two caroms. Kayley Dresback tallied three points, five rebounds and two steals, Miranda Aunspach had three points and Kaitlyn Peters, Kendra Husmann and Emily Kuehl two points apiece.
Statistics from Madrid were not available.
W-G will visit Panorama Tuesday for a boys/girls WCC set which will wrap the pre-holiday portion of the season. Both Hawk squads will return to action Jan. 5 with a trip to Earlham.
