Traveling to Brady Friday night the Lady Broncos fell to last year’s District Champions, the Brady Eagles, 70-35.

The Lady Eagles came out with four seniors and one junior in their pattern using a full court press and forcing five straight turnovers. Brady in turn scored eight fast points.

Coach Roger Lauhead said “Brady probably will be the most talented team we will meet this year.”

Senior Sheyla Christner led the Broncos with 13 points, hitting her first two shots, and finishing the night with four rebounds and one blocked shot.

Sophomore Tailor Lee followed with seven points and four rebounds, but was hampered after drawing her fourth foul late in the second quarter.

“I think our nerves started to hurt our overall play,” said Lauhead.

The Lady Eagles finished the game shooting over 50 percent to WP’s 38.

Coach Lauhead was also forced to substitute his younger players under tough conditions due to foul problems.

The Lady Broncos travel to Cambridge, a team that slipped past them, 43-42 last year, on Friday Dec 9, at 3:30 MT/4:30CT.
