Lady Lobos lose two games

By N. Waddell

The Lady Lobo basketball team took on the Lady Tigers of Globe High School and the Lady Panthers of Superior High School last week with very little success mainly coming from their inability to put the basketball in the basket.

The Lady Tigers were on the Hayden court on Tuesday Dec. 4 quickly taking a six-point lead over the Lady Lobos in the first quarter when the Lobos could only come up with two points to trail 2-8.

The Lady Lobos fought back in the second quarter picking up their scoring but the Lady Tigers kept matching their output to go into the locker room at halftime with a 9-16 lead.

The scoring by both teams picked up in the third quarter and again the Tigers kept matching the Lobo scores to take a 22-31 lead at the end of three quarters of play. Just like in the first quarter, the scoring went by the way side for the Lobos only able to score two fourth quarter points to lose the game 24-38.

Cheyanne Gaona led Lady Lobo scoring with eight points. Ashley Cruz and Melinda Marinez each scored five points for the Lobos. Devin Estrada playing hard under the boards and on defense scored four points with Kyana Garcia also tough under the boards and defense had two Lobo points.

The lack of scoring again haunted the Lady Lobos when the Superior Lady Panthers came to Lobo Gym on Thursday Dec. 6. Playing hard defense kept the game close for the Lobos in the first quarter trailing by two points at the end of the first period, 4-6.

The scoring picked up in the second period unfortunately it was the team in black jerseys that did the damage outscoring the Lady Lobos 6-14 in the period to take a 10-20 lead at the end of the first half.

The second half turned into a defensive battle between the Lobos and Panthers with neither team able to score in double figures in the final two stanzas. The final score ended 23-29 in favor of the Panthers.

Cheyanne Gaona again led the Lady Lobo scoring with 13 points and played very well defensively. Ashley Cruz had five Lobo points with Kyana Garcia and Melinda Marinez each scoring two points. Devin Estrada again playing tough under the boards and on defense had one point.

The young Lady Lobo team will have three tough games next week starting on Monday when the Lady Bearcats of Ray High come to Lobo Gym.

Things will not get easier for the Lady Lobos when the tall, run and gun Lady Braves of San Carlos High School come to Lobo Gym on Wednesday Dec 12. A team that gave the Lobos fits last year, the Lady Knights of Immaculate Heart High School, will be on the Lobo court on Friday Dec. 14.
