Fair Grove coach Jenny Talbert was pleased with the game.
“We were disappointed after our performance in the Pink and White Tournament. Our plan was to attack this game with great play and high energy,” said Talbert. “It was a great game to watch from the bench. I have a fantastic bunch of girls.”
Fair Grove turned up the heat on Catholic from the tip-off. The Eagles found the gaps in Catholic’s defense, pushing through for the bucket. When the Irish pushed the Eagles outside, they answered with a series of 3-pointers. The Lady Eagles' Taylor Davis finished with three 3-pointers; Kinzie Williams had 2, and DeAmbria Pilkinton had one.
Fair Grove led 26-7 after the first quarter and 42-20 at halftime.
Catholic is a young team with a first year head coach in Joshua Miller. They are working to fill the holes left by six departing seniors from last year’s team. The Irish fought hard against the Eagles, pushing them until the final buzzer sounded on tonight’s game.
The Lady Irish will take on Hermann at home on Jan. 5th. Fair Grove will be participating in the Skyline Tournament.
