Comet Girls Fall to LPA

By Craig Olson - Lake Park, MN

The Hillcrest girls basketball team battled Lake Park-Audubon on Saturday afternoon in Lake Park and came up short in a 61-51 contest.

"We played a great first five minutes and last five minutes, but we need to learn how to put a full 36 minutes together," said Hillcrest Head Coach Hannah Clark.  "We had trouble keeping them off of the offensive boards and we sent them to the free throw line too many times.  We were down twenty with about five minutes left and we cut the lead to nine with just over two minutes to go.  Our girls played hard through th eend of the game and I'm proud of the way our girls fought back."

Olivia Foss made 10-of-14 shots, finishing with 21 points.  She also added 9 rebounds and a pair of assists.  Mackenzie Foss had 14 points and 3 assists, and Anna Murray added 12 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists.

"Olivia Foss, once again, played an all around great game," said Clark.  "Anna Murray worked hard down low.  She had a tough assignment guarding a great post and I thought she did a good job.  We got into foul trouble early on and we had great minutes from our bench.  Audra Ewan, Molly McGuire and Cassandra Twedt playd hard and gave us great energy off of the bench."

Hillcrest hit 22-of-47 (47%) shots from the field and made 6-of-8 free throws.

The Comets will play at Wheaton on Monday night.
