The Sherman Huskies lost a pair of games over the weekend, 40-34 to Trout Lake and 49-38 to Lyle-Wishram as part of a two-day weekend roadtrip in Washington.
Against Trout Lake, Andi Harrison scored eight points, Janet Guzman had six, and Meagan McKinney followed up with five to the scoresheet.
“The girls played well for the first 3 quarters, then we got real soft on defense and gave up way to many second chance shots on the defensive end, and we stopped attacking the basket and executing our offense in the fourth,” said Sherman coach Steve Kaseberg.
In the second half, Trout Lake erased a 22-15 deficit with a 25-12 run.
In their game against Lyle, the Huskies were outscored 28-21 in the second half of their 11-point setback, as Katie Poirier led all scorers with 17 and Guzman came in with eight.
Now, Kaseberg wants to see his team rebound off these losses.
“These things can be improved, but the girls need to really step up their level of intensity or these kinds of games are going to continue on,” the coach said. “Effort was good for both games but we can do much better with more intensity, urgency, and energy.”
Sherman (2-3 overall) hosts Riverside at 6 p.m. tonight.
