The Lady Eagle varsity basketball team gave the district champion Falls City Beaverettes a tough game but came up short by ten, 51-41, in the regular season’s finale on Tuesday night in Falls City.

“The ladies played a hard game and did a great job of breaking the Falls City press. I am very proud of the effort and class of the ladies in every game we have played this year,” said Lady Eagle head coach Darcy Siddon.

“I am excited that all their hard work has paid off with a trip to the playoffs.”

The Beaverettes controlled the contest the whole way. They led by six, 15-9, at the end of the first period and took a 27-18 lead into the halftime intermission. The two teams played on an even basis through the second half but the Lady Eagles could get no closer as the Beaverettes emerged with a 51-41 victory.

Sarah Gill led the Lady Eagles in scoring with 17 points on the night. Jessica Stanley hit for nine markers. Tori Garza, Paige Fox and Olivia De Los Santos all contributed with four markers. Hailee Schauer recorded two points while Lindsay P. added one free throw to complete the Pettus scoring.

The Lady Eagles made it to the playoffs and will play the Ben Bolt Lady Badgers on Tuesday night in Skidmore. The bi-distirct match-up with tip off is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
