Cougars Defeat the Wildcats

Jarron Hembree, Reporter/Writer

On Tuesday, January 5th, our Lady Wildcats high school basketball team faced the College Heights Cougars at The College of the Ozarks. At the start of the game, both teams were neck and neck with each other with nearly tying with each other at the end of the first quarter. At the start of the second quarter, the Lady Wildcats burst off quickly leaving the Cougars behind but hit a slump as they trail 22-14 at the end of the second quarter. Throughout the entire third quarter, each team was basically trading punches with each other scoring each possession ending the third quarter with Cougars in the lead (33-22). The Lady Wildcats stage a comeback making it 37-30 with two minutes left in the fourth quarter. They quickly make it a 3-point game (37-34) with 50 seconds to go but in the end the Cougars ice the game with a three making the end score 40-34.

Good luck at your next game Wildcats!

Their current record for the season is 11-2.
