A scoreless second quarter hurt the Orrick Lady Bearcats, but not the visiting Plattsburg Lady Tigers Tuesday night. Both Plattsburg and Orrick were blanked in the second period as the Lady Tigers went on to record a 51-36 victory.
The visitors grabbed a 22-17 lead after the opening period and after a scoreless second frame by both teams, Plattsburg opened up its lead in the third quarter with a 13-6 scoring advantage and then closed out the night with a 16-13 edge in the final 8 minutes.
The loss dropped the Lady Bearcats to 4-5 for the season heading into the Holiday break. Orrick also was charged with 29 turnovers for the night.
