Girls lose 2 on the road


It was another rough weekend for the Green River High School Lady Wolves basketball team.

The Lady Wolves played their last two regular-season conference games and lost both of them, taking them to 4-6 in conference games and 7-12 overall.

On Friday night, after a day of travel, the Lady Wolves took on Natrona County and lost, 71-49.

Head coach Rick Carroll said there were times when the Lady Wolves were playing good, consistent basketball and other times when they weren’t.

Natrona County is a tough team and only has one conference game loss; and the Lady Wolves needed to be consistent through the entire game to take them down.

“They’re the best team in the conference for sure,” Carroll said about Natrona. “They just out rebounded us pretty good.”

Carroll said the Lady Wolves just looked like a team that just had a really long bus ride to play a game. He said the Lady Wolves were just not moving their feet well. They didn’t play the best defense or the best offense.

Leading the Lady Wolves in the Natrona County game, was Taylor Stoeger with 18 points, five rebounds and five steals, followed by Madelyn Heiser with 10 points, three rebounds and three assists, Hannah Hix with eight points and four rebounds and Ashelynn Birch with nine rebounds.

On Saturday, the Lady Wolves took on Kelly Walsh, and despite having the lead for most of the game, they came up short, 48-44.

“We had the lead and lost it,” Carroll said.

He said they played three good quarters of basketball and in the fourth quarter they let Kelly Walsh catch up and take the lead.

“Extremely frustrating in that game,” Carroll said. “We need to stay relaxed.”

The Lady Wolves did good on not turning the ball over until the fourth quarter.

“We had the lead for a long time and slowly gave it up,” Carroll said.

Starting and finishing the games strong is something the Lady Wolves have worked on all season.

Leading the Lady Wolves in the Kelly Walsh game, was Stoeger with 14 points, seven rebounds, three assists and nine steals, followed by Hix with 14 points and six rebounds and Birch with nine points and 10 rebounds.

The Lady Wolves will take on the Evanston Lady Red Devils at the regional tournament Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m. at the Rock Springs High School gym. Carroll said the Lady Wolves have to win this game or they are done for the season. Evanston has beat the Lady Wolves the last two times they met this season; and the Lady Wolves are hungry for a win.
