The Orrick Lady Bearcats could not recover from a stalled offense in the first half Thursday night as they dropped a 62-51 decision at Cass Midway. Orrick, now 4-5 for the season, managed just six field goals and four free throws through the first two periods as the Lady Vikings opened a 21-10 lead after one quarter and 31-16 halftime cushion.
“We need to do a better job of starting off games,” Orrick Coach Mitch Comstock said. “If we played the whole game like we played in the fourth quarter, we would be a lot better off.”
Cass Midway held an 18-10 scoring advantage through the third quarter, but Orrick came alive in the fourth and outscored the home team 23-15. However, it wasn’t enough and the Lady Bearcats came up short.
Sam Fulte paced the Orrick attack. The Lady Bearcat sophomore hit 8 of 10 field goals tries and was 4 of 5 from the free throw line on her way to a 20-point night.
