Lady Plainsmen fall to competition

Three games last week added three losses for the Lady Plainsmen basketball team, taking their season record to 4-16. 

Home games against Maxwell and Cambridge were followed by a road trip to Cozad, but the PC girls came up short and were unable to obtain a win. 

Maxwell

The Lady Plainsmen offense out-scored the Maxwell Lady Cats in the first quarter last Tuesday night, taking a 12-8 lead at the end of the first. 

PC took their lead to 23-14 at halftime. 

The Lady Cats came back from halftime aggressively fighting for a comeback and added 12 to their score in the third, while holding PC to seven. The PC girls held on to the lead at the end of the third, 30-26. 

It was the fourth quarter that saw the girls allow Maxwell to not only tie up the game, but ultimately take the win 40-38 by the end. 

Cambridge

The Cambridge Lady Trojans took on PC on their home court on Friday night and ran the game 12-3 at the end of the first and 31-9 by halftime. 

Despite solid efforts by the Lady Plainsmen who added 13 more points before the end of the game, Cambridge took the win 53-22 over the Lady Plainsmen. 

Cozad

Seven points went up for PC in the first, leaving them trailing the Lady Haymakers by just four. 

Cozad turned up the heat in the second and blew up 24 points to their side of the board, while holding the PC girls to just two, for a 35-9 advantage at halftime.

Despite another three points for PC in the second half, Cozad took the win 63-12.
