Although they fought hard, the Freshman Orange girls’ basketball were defeated by the Pflugerville Panthers on Jan. 17 with a score of 34-46. Unfortunately the Lady Warriors were not able to overcome the challenges presented by the Lady Panthers’ defensive strategies. Leah Zahm ‘20 helped her teammates multiple times with scoring by clearing their path. Grace Duff ‘20 assisted the team by fighting hard against the Panthers’ defense and offense.

“I think we were playing a bit sloppy and a bit lazy,” Duff said. “That’s probably why we lost the game, we definitely could’ve done better. We could definitely focus more on running a play so that we’re not just running all over the place and also try harder. The other team we were up against did really well, they were really confident in their plays and just did really good.”

The Lady Warriors will play their next home game against on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 5:30 p.m. against Round Rock.
