Falcons' girls fall 60-41 at Mt. Edgecumbe

The Thunder Mountain High School girl’s basketball team lost at Mt. Edgecumbe 60-41 on Thursday night.

“We were hoping for a turnaround to redeem ourselves,” TMHS coach Tanya Nizich said. “We thought we could play them closer than when they came to our house.”

The Lady Braves beat the Falcons in the Thunder Dome Tournament 46-37 in January.

“We definitely got out rebounded,” Nizich said. “That is something we are going to need to address if we want to win. That is just my opinion, and I am very right.”

The Falcons could not find the basket early and trailed 10-4 after one quarter and 28-17 at the half.

“Even our easy shots did no fall right under the basket,” Nizich said. “And they just shot the lights out of ball. We did play some solid defense and really made them work on offense, but they were just hitting every shot.”

The Lady Braves tallied 18 points in the third quarter and 20 in the final stanza to keep a double-digit lead throughout the second half.

Ashley Young led the Falcons with 12 points, Sarah Morris added eight, Janelle Staveland seven, Ava Tompkins and Shayla Reeves six each, Eyerus Tingley two.

TMHS hit 14-18 at the charity stripe, MEHS went 10-16. The Lady Braves were led by Taryn White’s 16 points and Mariah Martin’s 12.

The Falcons play the Sitka Lady Wolves at 7 p.m. tonight and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.
