South Fork Girls Fall to 0-2 in League with Loss to Ferndale
The two teams played somewhat evenly through the first half, with the lead trading hands several times during the 2nd quarter. However the Wildcats started to pull away before the halftime buzzer and came out firing on all cylinders in the third quarter.
Senior co-captain Noelia Alatorre said, “We went into the game with a really positive attitude and our intensity was high, but Ferndale got really hungry in the 3rd quarter.” As the Wildcats started pouring in 3-point shots, the Cubs defense became vulnerable to the drive when they attempted to shut down the outside shooting. “We gave up on ourselves a little,” added Alatorre, “and we need to keep up our passion through the whole game, myself included.”
Overwhelmed by the Wildcat attack, the Cubs could only score 5 points in the second half, but Alatorre credits sophomore Regina Salomon with playing tough till the end. “She never gives up and she always follows her shots.”
This week the Lady Cubs will travel to Hoopa on Friday to wrap up the first round of Humboldt Del Norte Little Four Conference play. Tip off will be at 6:00. The Lady Cubs are now 5-10 on the season.
