Cold shooting night hurts girls varsity basketball in 49-26 loss to Rockford

After an exciting opening night win against Wyoming last Tuesday, the girls varsity basketball team had some confidence going into a big game against the Rockford Rams. They unfortunately could not pull out the win, falling to Rockford 49-26. 

Sophomore Theryn Hallock was the main offensive production for FHC, scoring 14 of the 26 total points while grabbing 10 rebounds. Theryn also got some help from junior Katy Majick and senior Ally Ringler, while also helping out on the defensive end as well. 

The first half was a good one from an energy standpoint. However, the Lady Rangers struggled mightily shooting the ball. Even with high percentage shots, the Rangers couldn’t get anything going offensively and the Rams began to pull away early. The pace of Rockford was also a factor in slowing down the Rangers, as the Rams went into the half with a large lead. 

The second half was even better from the first half from an energy standpoint, but the Rangers still struggled offensively. Theryn continued to score at will, but no other Ranger could help out and make some shots. FHC also struggled handling the ball against a very good Rockford defense, which turned into many points off turnovers for the Rams. The clock expired and the girls lost 49-26. 

The loss puts FHC at 1-1 on the season. The Rangers have an important bounce back game against the Forest Hills Eastern Hawks this Friday. To win this game, the Rangers will need to limit turnovers and play hard defensively in order to improve to 2-1.
