DAYTON – The West Side girls lost a seven-point, non-district game against the visiting Grace Grizzlies on Friday, Dec. 28, in Dayton despite outscoring their opponent by seven in the last quarter.
Grace sunk the Pirates 50-43. First-year West Side coach Kelli Hobson praised her young team for the way it fought back, especially in the fourth quarter.
“We played well. It’s tough to play over the holidays because you have a crazy practice schedule. Overall I’m very pleased with how we are playing right now. We have two tough games next week against Soda and Malad. We have been working towards district play all year. I hope we can peak at the right time,” she said.
The Pirates had a hard time containing Grace guard Stephanie Lloyd, who garnered praise from Hobson. Lloyd finished the night with 16 points and was slowed with foul trouble when West Side rallied in the fourth.
Pirate senior Britani Moser had a big game and scored a game-high 17. She scored the team’s only three-point shots. Casey Rich scored 13 and freshman Abbie Povey had 15 rebounds.
West Side plays Soda Springs at home on Wednesday and Malad in Malad on Saturday.
