Farwell girls drop 2
Host Carson City was too much for the Farwell Monday night, as the Lady Eagles suffered a 50-10 non-conference loss.
Carson City took an 11-1 lead after the first and pulled ahead 19-3 at the half.
“We actually played a pretty good half, unfortunately we couldn’t get the ball into the hole,” Farwell head coach Tom Kleinhardt said. “They’re a pretty good team, they’ve got some shooters.”
Carson City put the game away with a 25-5 scoring edge in the third quarter, and finished with a 6-2 scoring edge in the fourth.
“We just ran out of juice I think in the third quarter and they couldn’t miss,” Kleinhardt said.
Caron White led Farwell with four points and seven rebounds and Sydney Hurley had three points and four rebounds.
On Thursday, Jan. 3 the Lady Eagles dropped a Jack Pine Conference contest, 43-37 against visiting Meridian.
The Lady Mustangs led 11-8 after the first quarter and maintained their lead with a 22-19 edge at the half. Meridian pulled ahead 31-27 entering the fourth quarter. Farwell took a one point lead with three minutes to go, but Meridian quickly regained the lead, and still led by two points with 18 seconds to go.
The Eagles fouled a Meridian player to force late free throws, but an intentional foul was called. Kleinhardt was also given a technical foul for his apparent displeasure with the call.
“It was a game changer for us,” he said of the foul. “They missed the front end of what would have been a one-and-one so who knows what would have happened if they didn’t make that call. But they did call it and we had opportunities before that, it just seemed like anytime we went to add to our lead or get the lead back we had a crucial turnover or something came up.”
Jenna Hamming led Farwell with 11 points, four steals and four assists, Kate Saupe had nine points and seven rebounds and White added eight points and seven boards.
Farwell (3-4 overall, 2-3 JPC) played at Clare on Thursday and host Roscommon on Tuesday.
