Peabody-Burns girls showed plenty of energy during their first game of the season Friday, but not enough to stop them from losing to the Herington Railers 26-47.
The girls kept it a close game for the first half, but during the second, Herington managed to up their antics and end with 21 more points than Peabody-Burns.
Mallory Harris led the Warriors during the game with 14 points, while Anna Lubbers scored 6.
Though the girls lost, coach Scott Bauer was pleased with the energy the girls showed on the court.
“I was very excited with how we came out with a sense of urgency in the first quarter,” Bauer said. “We moved the ball very well offensively all game and were getting good looks at the basket, we just weren’t getting them to fall.”
Bauer said that the team had things to take away from the game that were good, but also things to work on before the Marion Classic this week.
“The girls are excited about the tournament and playing teams outside our league,” Bauer said.
