Trinity girls lose in frustration

NATCHEZ — Trinity’s girls left coach Richy Spears stunned and speechless Saturday night in a 51-41 loss to Bowling Green.

The Lady Saints (15-8) had a hard time rebounding, fouled too much, turned the ball over and did not contest shots.

“That’s what’s frustrating. We’re used to living by defense. We just got to step up,” Spears said.

“I don’t even know what else to say because I’m so frustrated.”

The Lady Saints gave up double-digit scores in the first (18), second (15) and fourth quarter (14).

The offense struggled just as badly.

“It’s irritating. We played hard, we just couldn’t get it going,” Spears said.

The Saints missed many shots in the paint and trailed by as many as 11 and pulled the score as close as two points, but they could never get over the hump to take the lead.

Madelyn Cross led Trinity with 20 points.
