Washington JV girls fall at Durant
DURANT — The Washington junior varsity girls’ basketball team lost to Durant 42-38 on Tuesday night.
The Demons (3-4) fell behind 19-11 after one quarter of play.
“Obviously our first-quarter defense was poor,” Washington head coach Jay Zieglowsky said. “We did not execute our game plan whatsoever. The girls just weren’t mentally ready to play. It was very disappointing. We had some mental mistakes that just aren’t acceptable.”
Washington rallied back, though. The Demons trailed 25-22 at halftime and tied the score at 33 early in the fourth quarter before the Wildcats pulled away late.
“We tied it early in the fourth quarter, but just could not do what we needed to do to win it,” Zieglowsky said.
Junior Grace Redlinger scored 12 points to lead the Demons, and junior Dema Giardino added seven points. Sophomore Dylann Schluetter contributed six points, five rebounds and three steals. Sophomores Rachael Hall and Jordan Stout scored four points apiece, and sophomore Macy Marek had three points. Sophomore Sydney Hoffman chipped in two points, three rebounds and three steals, and sophomore Elle Van Gundy pulled down four rebounds.
The Washington junior varsity girls’ basketball team will travel to Keokuk tomorrow night.
“We have a lot of work to do,” Zieglowsky said.
