Lexie Berry had a team-high six points for the Lady Comets. Megan Centers scored three points while Bonita Easterling, Morgan Berry and Chelsea Zeigler had two points each. Lexie Berry said once Frankfort took the big lead, she knew her team was in trouble.
“Whenever teams get up on us, we don’t handle it all,” Lexie Berry said.
Despite the loss, West Carter outrebounded Frankfort 46-36, including 14 offensive rebounds. Stevens also credited that stat with good defensive pressure early in the contest.
“I thought we played fairly good defense,” Stevens said. “In the first quarter, we had everything pretty much where we wanted it. But when they turned the pressure up, we pretty much stopped everything that we were doing.”
But he also knows offense wins games.
“We’re not a big time scoring team,” Stevens said. “We’ve relied on our defense and most of their points were not anything special. It was to their advantage because they were quicker. We had to keep the game in our neighborhood and we didn’t do that.”
