The Hillcrest girls basketball team could not find the consistency from field as they fell to Little Eight Conference opponent Rothsay 46-18 Tuesday.
The game started out tight as the two teams traded buckets, but Rothsay would go on a 19-0 run and go to the lockeroom at half up 29-9.
The Tiger defense was stout in the second half holding the Comets to nine second half points on their home court to pick up the victory.
“We were out-rebounded and had trouble getting the shots we’d like,” Comets’ coach Charlie Brue said. Rothsay is a much-improved team over last year.”
Alexis Craig scored 12 points to lead the Rothsay shooters, while teammate Lexy Dunbar added 10.
Abbe Monacelli and Laura Tungseth each had five points for the Comets.
The Tigers pulled down 32 rebounds compared to 13 for Hillcrest.
