It was a tough Friday for two Montgomery County girls basketball teams.
Chargers fall to Red Ramblers
LINDEN — Attica scored 11 unanswered points in the first quarter and the North Montgomery girls basketball team was unable to respond in a 33-22 defeat by the Red Ramblers Friday night.
The Chargers were 0-11 from the field in the first period, and Attica converted on 4-12 field goal attempts to build the lead.
Attica (1-1) towered over North Montgomery (2-1) with an evident size difference on the court. Charger coach Ryan Nuppnau used the word timid often following his team’s poor offensive performance.
North Montgomery did not get much offensive production from anyone besides senior Becca Adams who scored 15 of the Charger’s 22 points. Emma Cole led the Red Ramblers with nine points, while Karissa Pluimer added eight.
Attica dominated the boards, especially in the first half with 12 coming on the offensive end.
The Chargers will be back in action Friday evening against Western Boone in the opening game of the Sugar Creek Classic at Southmont.
Tri-West too much for Crawfordsville
It was Tri-West’s pressure from the start of the game that kept the Crawfordsville Athenians from moving to 3-0 on the season Friday night in girls basketball action as the visitors handed the Athenians a 64-19 loss.
The Bruins (2-1, 2-0) forced Crawfordsville into 13 turnovers in the first quarter and had a 6-0 lead before the home team ever got the ball across mid-court.
The turnovers continued to pile up and when the game had ended the Athenians (2-1, 0-1) had given the ball away 43 times.
The Athenians were led by Addie Laskowski who had seven points. Olivia Barnett came in off the bench and tallied six points for the Athenians. The Bruins were led by Skylar Jobe who tossed in 17 points and Maggie Cora added 11.
