The Lone Tree girls basketball team came out of the break by playing two of their best games, but one bad quarter thwarted both games’ chances of wins.

In their first game back the Lady Lions had three in double-digits, with Columbus Junction defeating Lone Tree 48-43. Despite scoring just 10 first half points, Lone Tree stormed back in the second half by outscoring Columbus 18-12 in the third. That brought their deficit to 33-28, but both teams tied for 15 points in the fourth quarter leading to a five-point Columbus victory.

Riley Warson had 11 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks, while junior Ashley Musser added 10 points and sophomore Holley Johnson had a season-high 12 points for the Lady Lions.

The Lady Lions upset bid against Winfield-Mount Union by being outscored 16-5 in the third quarter in the 42-39 loss. Lone Tree had double-digit scoring from Warson and Musser again in the game. They outscored WMU 14-8 in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t come up with enough offense to force overtime or win the game.

The group compiled 12 steals on the night.
