The PHS girls had a very busy week with two road games and finished with one at home. On Friday, Dec. 14, Preston faced the Malad Dragons in the afternoon at home, losing 39-34.
The Indians trailed by four at the end of the first quarter but kept at it and pulled ahead in the second to take a 23-21 lead to the locker room.
“Defensively, I felt the team played as well as we have all season,” said Coach Belinda Taylor. “We worked hard to control the game through tying up the point guard most of the game. She scored one three-pointer in the first quarter, then we were able to shut her down the rest of the game. We worked hard on defending their inside player, Aubrey King, but didn’t keep her off the boards enough, as she still had 16 points.”
“Hannah Roberts had another great scoring night as she led the team with nine points,” said Taylor. “Whitney Alder had four assists and Shania Carlisle had 14 of our 33 rebounds. I really felt that we played well in this game, but missed too many easy shots. We shot 18 percent from the field. Our shots are going to fall. We just need to keep focused on improving our overall game and finishing around the basket.”
