NORTH ROBINSON — The Lady Tigers fell to host Colonel Crawford 58-49 Tuesday night in a North Central Conference and county basketball match-up.


The Lady Eagles had a 15-8 lead at the end of the first quarter. By halftime, though, the Lady Orange-and-Blue had cut the gap to a mere two points, 26-24. The winners claimed periods three and four by 15-9 and 17-16 counts, respectively, sealing the deal.


“We played with much more intensity tonight,” said Bryce Lehman, first-year head coach of Galion. “We had three players reach double-figures. It was the type of intensity we should play with every game.”


He continued, “Once again, however, the ‘little things’ became our own worst enemy. We missed 15-plus shots that were either lay-ups or two-foot shots. We have to shoot with confidence. We can not afford to miss ‘chip shots’ in the paint when given the opportunity.”


Grace Brown — a 6’2” junior — led the locals in scoring with 13 points. Raven Crawford chipped in with 12, and Ramonda Dorsey, 11. Also, M’Lynn Gwinner and Taylor Valentine garnered 5 points apiece, and Robin Barnes, 2.


Galion — 1-12 overall and 1-5 in the NCC — had one of its better shooting games of the season going 17-for-43 (40%) on two-pointers and 9-for-14 (64%) on foul shots. From behind the arc, the locals were just 2-for-9 (22%). They hauled in 23 rebounds (7 by Crawford), turned the ball over 16 times, recorded 6 steals (3 by Dorsey) and dished out 16 assists (Crawford and Dorsey with 4 apiece).


Cassie Sager knocked down a game-high 19 points for the Lady Eagles. Katie Siegel added 14.


“At times, I have players who take a ‘break’ while on the floor,” Lehman stated. “We can not take plays off. There has to be a sense of urgency on every possession — that’s how teams win games. My girls have to play to their full potential every possession and play with confidence.”
