JV Lady Tanagers fall in fourth quarter The Vermillion JV Lady Tanagers fell victim to a fourth-quarter rally and were topped by the Parker Pheasants 36-30 in girls basketball Oct. 25 at Parker.
VHS had led by two after the third quarter.
Abby Moore scored 8 points, pulled down 4 rebounds and made 1 assist.
�Abby Moore played some good basketball, and she showed some mental toughness,� said VHS Coach Troy Terronez. �She didn�t get to rest, but she continued to be competitive.�
The Lady Tanagers led 8-4 after the first quarter, went into the locker room up 18-12 at halftime, and then led 24-22 after the third period.
�The girls played hard against a very physical team,� said Coach Terronez. �Their press gave us some problems in the fourth quarter, which gave them a quick four points to regain the lead. Our younger players adjusted, but they couldn�t adjust to the physical play. We need to.�
The loss dropped VHS to a record of 12-3, while Parker junior varsity improved to 11-4.
VHS hit 6 of 4 free throw tries while the Pheasants connected on 2 of 2 free throw tries.
