Augusta 40 Abilene Cowgirls 33

ABILENE – The Abilene Cowgirls got off to a fast start for the second straight game but couldn’t maintain it, in their loss to Augusta Friday night.  Abilene led 10-9 at the end of the 1st quarter and only trailed 18-14 at halftime but gave up a big 3rd quarter run that they were never able to recover from.

Abilene’s Hannah Walter nailed a three-pointer to cut the deficit to 18-17 with 7:04 to play in the 3rd quarter.  Augusta answered with a 14-0 run to take control of the game.  The Orioles got a three-pointer from Emma Bourm to lead 32-17 with 3:30 to play in the 3rd quarter.  It was the Lady Orioles biggest lead of the game and the Cowgirls would never get any closer than 7 points the rest of the night.

The Nex-Tech Wireless Players of the Game were Walter, who finished with 11 points and Claira Dannefer, who finished with 12 points.  Abilene fell to 0-3 with the loss and will host Southeast of Salina on Tuesday.  Augusta improved to 1-1 with the victory.

Abilene Cowboys 63 Augusta 47

ABILENE – The payback tour continued for the Abilene Cowboys Friday night in their victory over Augusta.  Abilene lost 65-62 to the Orioles last year.  In that game the Cowboys led the entire game and had a 5 point lead with 3 minutes to play.  Augusta finished the game on an 11-3 run to win it.

In Friday’s victory, the Cowboys scored the first 16 points in the game and led 17-10 at the end of the 1st quarter.  Augusta got to within 4 points in the 2nd quarter but trailed 29-22 at halftime.  Abilene continued to pull away in the 3rd quarter, as they took a 48-36 lead into the 4th.  The Cowboys got up by as many as 17 points in the final quarter and won by 16 points which is important.  One of the tie-breakers this season by KSHSAA is how many 15+ point victory a team has.
