Despite an early lead, the Lady Lions lost to the Tigers of Iowa Valley last Thursday night in Marengo, 34-19.

The Lady Lions began the game with a three from Riley Warson followed by an additional two free throws by Warson and a single free throw from Emily Feldman. This would be the only scoring of the quarter, as the Tigers caught up within the last minute to bring the first-quarter score to 6-5, with the Lady Lions in the lead.

Lone Tree went into the second quarter slowly and the first bucket fell four minutes into the quarter with a mid-range jumpshot from Holley Johnson. The Lady Lions played in a tight zone defense, forcing Iowa Valley to shoot from the perimeter. But, three 3-point shots fell for the Tigers in this quarter alone. The Lady Lions entered halftime behind Iowa Valley, 17-10.

Into the third quarter, the Lady Lions found themselves in the same spot, only scoring four points the entire quarter. The first from freshman Maddie Jacque, who stood in the place of Ashley Musser, who was out due to an illness. Jacque delivered a three for the Lions, followed by a single free throw from Sydney Alt.

The Lady Lions went into the bonus early on in the game, but only made 2-10 from the line. Lone Tree gave up costly fouls putting the Tigers into the bonus, where six of their points came from.

In the end, Lone Tree failed to execute their plays offensively as well as stop Iowa Valley’s perimeter success.
