After trailing by as many as 14 points early in the game, the Hooker Lady Bulldogs clawed their way back into the game, taking a 27-26 lead with a minute left in the game. But a foul call on a three-point gave tournament host Cherokee a chance to take back the lead. Cherokee made all three and held on to win 32-2.
"We had a chance to win it, even after we had started so bad," Lady Bulldogs coach Ray Kennedy said. "I was really proud of how our team responded."
Cherokee's sagging man-to-man gave the Lady Bulldogs fits early as the Lady Chiefs built a 16-2 lead early in the second quarter. Hooker did cut into the lead some before half with an 11-3 run, but still trailed 18-13.
Both teams struggled at the offensive end in the third with each team scoring 6. Hooker outscored Cherokke 8-3 over the next seven minutes, and held the Lady Chiefs to just three second half field goals.
Hooker's top scorers, Kyra Cathcart, Jade Cathcart, and Jayme Walton, each finished with seven. Hooker will travel to Rolla tomorrow.
