Girls Varsity Basketball · Lady Tigers Defeat Lady Lions

The Lady Tigers took on the Gracemont Lady Lions after the Minco Bulldog Classic this past weekend. The girls had high hopes of getting back on the winning road. The Lady Tigers did what they intended to do and got the W 45-28. 

The Lady Tigers led the first half 20-9. Senior, Hunter Johnson lead the ladies in the first half with 8 points, Livia Nelson, another senior, followed closely adding another 6 points to the Tiger’s lead. Anyssa Morales, sophomore, scored 4 and Taytim Woods, freshman, brought up the rear with 2 points.

The second half the ladies came out ready to close the deal and finish it off. The third quarter, Nelson busted another 3, giving her a total of 3 three’s for the night. Johnson put up 12 more points for the second half giving her a total of 20 on the night. Jamie Schieber added 2 points along with Kailee Jackson with 4. 

The Lady Tigers are 3-1 in their past 4 games and placed 2nd in the Bulldog Classic this past weekend.

Coach Anderson said “I was pretty happy with the way our girls played to get to the finals at the Minco Tournament. I think they played very well vs Watonga and Lookeba, specifically defensively. We also hit some key shots during those 2 games. Things didn’t go well for us in the finals but that’s something our team has talked about moving forward from. We close out the semester with 2 good teams, so I am looking for us to defend well and ideally go into the break with 2 good wins.”

The Union City Lady Tigers improved their record to 7-3 in the season looking to improve it to 8-3 after the away Lookeba-Sickles game Friday night starting at 6:30. We hope to see you there!
