The Lady Tomcats of Trimble had only two games this week, but fell short in both. Coach Richard’s crew is now 1-10 on the season and in the midst of a four-game losing streak.
On Thursday, Jan. 9, they visited the Falcons of Miller. Miller outlasted Trimble by a count of 62-59. Trimble started the game very strong as they lead 17-6 after the first quarter and 38-23 at the half.
The second half looked to be a repeat of the first, as Trimble scored the first four points, but after a few buckets by Miller, that hope was erased.
The Falcons cut the lead to 49-39 at the end of the third quarter. Miller won the game with a dominant fourth quarter, where they outscored Trimble 22-10.
The Falcons had four players in double figures, and were lead by senior Ali Bray with 14 points seven boards. Fellow senior Jacy Dutiel recorded a double-double, as she had 12 points and 16 rebounds.
On Saturday, Jan. 11, Trimble played host to the South Gallia Rebels. The Tomcats only tallied 28 points, as they fell short 42-28. Trimble looks to end the losing streak Sunday afternoon as they host New Lexington.
The boys of Glouster had two games as well this week and split, as their record moved to 4-3.
Trimble battled the Eastern Eagles on Friday, Jan. 10, and won by a final score of 70-58. The Tomcats handed their non-conference opponent their eighth straight loss and held them under 40% shooting from the field.
The Buckeyes of Nelsonville-York traveled to Glouster on Saturday, Jan. 11, and knocked off the Tomcats 64-59. Although no stats were recovered, Trimble had one of their worst scoring outputs of the season.
The boys look to get back into their winning ways as they have a date in Glouster on Tuesday, Jan. 14, with Belpre.
