Lady Comets split opening games at Winterfest

By Mark Jurgena

In the quarterfinals of the CORL Winterfest Tournament just outside of Centralia, undefeated McLeansboro (Hamilton County) outscored the Lady Comets in every quarter to take a 46-22 win.

GHS only trailed 13-9 after one quarter but the Foxes pulled away by halftime leading 24-13.

“I thought we came out with really good energy, but their defensive pressure bothered us a bit early on,” said GHS coach Quin Hammann. “They were able to make some shots to build a lead and we had to play catch-up and just couldn’t make enough plays to get back in the game.” For more information see the December 30, 2022 edition of The Greenville Advocate.
