Takiya Britton had 15 points for the Eldorado in a 50-32 loss at Hamilton County late last week.

Rachel Stafford scored six points for the Eagles, while Olivia Parker finished with four points, Derian Corn tacked on three, while Madison Newton and Jade Hise each had two points.

Webber Township 32, Galatia 29

Kennedy Harris had 11 points for the Galatia girls" basketball team in a 32-29 loss to Webber Township last week.

Kassidy Rizor scored six points, while Madison Murphy and Mallory Mays each finished with four points. Emma Reagan and Brittany Hutchison each tacked on two points.

Also late last week, Galatia fell to Woodlawn 49-14, where only four Bearcats filled up the scoring sheet.

Harris had a team-high five points, while Mays finished with four points. Murphy tacked on three and Regan tossed in two points.

With the two losses, Galatia now stands at 2-7 with a road game tonight (Monday) at Hamilton County in non-conference action. The Bearcats are only averaging 26 points per game and head coach Denise Clayton is hoping that stat will start to improve.

"We came out the first quarter with a game plan and began to get a rhythm of play against Webber Township," Clayton said. "We were down by three at the end of the first quarter and in the second quarter, we decided to stop following our game plan, scored only two points and fell behind by 11 at halftime.

In the second half, we came out with a different attitude and again began getting into the flow of game that we need to play to be successful. We scored 19 of our game 29 points and held Webber to just 11 points. I am hoping I saw the light bulb go on with some of our players and we can start not just working hard, but working smart."
