As the girls basketball season progresses, the team went up against West Aurora and played a close game on Thursday, losing 44-37.

“We had about three or four layups in the first half.  I wish we could have had an 8 or 10 point lead instead of a few points in the first half. But I thought we did a good job in the first half. We had a lot of blocked shots and we had a good offense,” head coach Kimberly Wallner said.

According to Wallner, West Aurora made some changes to their defense and the team did not adjust as well as they needed to in the last quarter.

“We needed to shoot a little better and adjust to the teams playing. But, I give a lot of credit for the players trying to score,” Wallner said.

The team had a setback when junior Sofia Radice fouled out the last quarter of the game.

“It hurt the team because we really look up to her and she is our main point guard. I am one of the guards and sometimes I needed to focus on handling this since she does a good job,” junior Sierra Koenig said.

The team has had a lot of close games that ended up in losses.

“We are going to try and practice defensively and offensively and for the mental toughness when we are up one or two. Some of the players are young and they are still learning how a game is like,” Wallner said.

Their next game is away against Addison Trail on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
