Fired-up Lady Buffs tame Huskies

by marlys good

The Greybull Lady Buffs outscored the Burlington Huskies in both the second and fourth quarters and won the non-conference match up 45-36 in Buff Gym Tuesday night.

Ceirra Carlson had the hot hand and scored a season high 22 points to lead the offensive charge.

After what Hunt called a “dry spell” in the third period, the Buffs scored 20 points in the last eight minutes, including 10 for 12 from the stripe. “Free throws were a big factor for us,” Coach Jeff Hunt pointed out. “The girls worked hard and finished strong.”

With three varsity players (McKenna Powers, Jordan Kraft and Nevin Brown) out with injuries, other players had to step in, and they did a great job of that. “All the girls who played contributed a lot. The girls played really well,” said Hunt.

After a few days break over the holiday, the Buffs will hit the practice court next week. They need all the practices they can get in to get fine-tuned for the 2013 portion of the season. They come back on Friday, Jan. 4 to play Lovell, one of the 2A’s top-ranked teams. The game is on the Bulldogs’ home court. Game times are 4 and 5:30 p.m.

They’ll get another look at Burlington Saturday, Jan. 5. This time the Huskies have home-court advantage so anything can happen.
