Girls varsity basketball loses 48-36 to EGR

Junior Claire Baguley once again proved to be a leader for the girls varsity basketball team as it took on East Grand Rapids last night. With 15 points, 13 rebounds, and 2 steals, as well as defending one of EGR’s star players, Claire was a big presence. Although FHC played an exceptional first half, the Pioneers ultimately came out victorious 48-36.

The Pioneers struck first with a three-pointer, but senior Madi Winter responded and scored 8 of her 11 points in the first quarter to put FHC up 13-12 after one. A combination of airtight Ranger defense and off-target Pioneer shots allowed FHC to maintain momentum through the second quarter and secure a 26-22 lead going into the locker room at halftime.

In the third, a common weak quarter for this FHC team, the Pioneers came out hot and scored 12 unanswered points. FHC was outscored 13-6 in this quarter as EGR gained a comfortable 37-28 lead after three. Despite continued effort and intensity from the Rangers, EGR had the momentum and held the lead until the end– ultimately winning 48-36.

This loss puts the Lady Rangers at 8-6 overall, and the next six regular season games will be conference matchups. FHC went 4-2 in the conference the first time through, with one of its losses coming in the final seconds against Northview. The Rangers will have a chance at redemption against the Northview Wildcats this Tuesday at home to kick off the second round through the conference.
