While their defense kept them in the game and limited Butler County to a season-low 25 points, the Lady Cats' offense couldn't get going, which resulted in only 21 points of offense, also a season-low.
"When you hold somebody to 25 points, you're supposed to win," said Head Coach Bart Weaver. "We just couldn't put it in the hole. I don't know, but I bet we missed about 10 layups."
While turnovers were lower than average (10), out-rebounding the Lady Bears, and being able to considerably slow down the pace of the game, the slow offense wouldn't allow the Lady Cats to gain any momentum, playing catch up for the majority of the contest.
Scoring was led by Annie Kiper and Jenna Cook with 5 points each, Riley Roy added 4, and Lily Jayne Vincent, Cariann Williams, Callie Webb, and Kennadi Swihart added 2 points each.
"We just gotta regroup," Weaver said. "Listen, the rest of our schedule is set up, it's winnable--every game, and it's also lose-able every game. If you look at our schedule, from now on, it's pretty tough and you can win 'em or lose 'em. So we've got to have a mindset next week of playing Clinton (County) and getting that momentum back for the Grayson game on Friday."
The Lady Cats are now 12-6 on the season and 2-1 in district play, with wins over Grayson County and Trinity. They are scheduled to travel to Clinton County on January 24th and another district match next Friday as they host Grayson County.
