The Eminence Warriors closed their regular season on Feb 13 with a 47-23 loss at Bellevue.

The Lady Tigers used a strong second quarter to pull away.

The Warriors trailed only 11-8 after the first period.

The Lady Tigers, who pressed from the beginning of the game and played several players throughout the game, began to reap dividends from their press in the second period. “We began to wear down in the second period and we had a lot of turnovers and missed shots,” Eminence coach Bill Covington said.

The Lady Tigers won the second period 11-2 to open a 12-point lead going into halftime.

It was more of the same in the third period as Bellevue continued to score off their press and Eminence had trouble finding the basket. Bellevue led after three periods, 36-14.

The Warriors regrouped in the final period and played the Lady Tigers close but the damage had been done and the Warriors fell by 24 points.

“The girls didn’t quit, they gave a good effort throughout the game,” Covington said. “We came back and played decent in the fourth quarter. I felt like our substitutes played well in this game.”
