If you had counted just the first and fourth quarters of Tuesday night's game pitting the Macksville Lady Stangs against the Cunningham Wildcats, the game would have been very close. But unfortunately the lack of scoring in the middle quarters shut down any chance for a Macksville victory, the game ending with a 24-45 loss to the Wildcats.
In the first quarter, all of Macksville's scoring came from freshmen. Macksville guard Sophie Filbert made four of the Stangs six points while the 5'9”(actually more like 5'10”) Emma Stimatze had the other two points, the score going into the second quarter with the Lady Stangs behind 6-7.
All of Macksville's five points in the second quarter were made by seniors, with Melissa Espino canning a 3-pointer and Selena Galan getting a basket.
Going into the half had the Lady Stangs trailing 11-19.
Things got worse in the third as the ball just wouldn't go in, the Lady Stangs coming up with a goose egg.
Cunningham increased their lead by 11 points, the score going into the final quarter with the Stangs down 11-30.
Playing their best quarter of the night offensively, the Lady Stangs made 13 points - junior Tara Bunker's seven points (a 3-pointer and two baskets), Espino's second 3-pointer of the night and Stimatze's basket (plus making Macksville's only free throw for the game).
The Lady Stangs lose to Cunninghamn 24-25.
Scoring for the Stangs: Bunker 7, Espino 6, Stimatze 5, Filbert 4, Galan 2.
Free throws: 1/7 for 14.28 percent – Stimatze 1/4.
The Macksville Ladies next game will be this Friday Central Plains at home.
