Lady Monarchs fall in Area match


JACKSBORO — A slow start out of the gates proved too much to overcome for the Poolville Lady Monarchs on Friday, as they faced Windthorst in a Class 1A Division I Region II Area playoff at Jacksboro High School. Although Poolville found more of its offense in the second half, it fell to the Lady Trojans, 52-24.

“If we had scored early, it might have been a little different game coming into the second half,” said Poolville head coach Kelly Pae. “It’s tough to get down to a team like Windthorst.

“Windthorst has a lot of playoff experience and really are veteran winners.”

Poolville earned its second playoff berth in as many years, and went a step further in the 2013-14 season, winning its bi-district game.

“Our girls are young and still new to the playoffs, and it kind of showed tonight,” Pae said. “I could tell our girls were nervous and our early play showed that.

“But every playoff game we play will help us going forward. Staying calm and relaxed and learning how to win in these games will come.

“We went down bad tonight, but we got the playoff win this time around, so we’re headed in the right direction.”

Poolville ends its season as bi-district champs and as district runners-up.

Brock 52 Gunter 49

Brock’s Lady Eagles advanced to the next bracket level, but not without a scare from a tenacious Gunter team, in a Class 2A Region II match played at Chisholm Trail on Friday. 

The Lady Tigers played Brock tough in their playoff meeting last season and this game was even tighter, as the Lady Eagles edged Gunter with a 52-49 win.

The Lady Tigers led going into the halftime locker room, but were shut down offensively by Brock in the third quarter. A 15-4 run gave the Lady Eagles a 9-point advantage going into the final period, but they had to hold off Gunter’s19-point barrage in the finale to win.
