Shots don’t fall as Chewelah bows out of districts…
Shots refused to drop through the hoop for the Lady Cougars last week as they were defeated by Freeman 59-35 in district tournament action, ending the season for the Chewelah girls.
“We hit a couple of shots early in the first period and then nothing would go down for us,” said Coach Tom Skok. “We had good looks at the basket and took good shots, but nothing would fall through the cylinder. We missed eight shots in a row and suddenly we were down 21-5. After that, we played catchup for the remainder of the game and never made a run at them. The slow start cost us the game”
The difference in the game was shooting percentage. Freeman shot the ball well throughout the game. Chewelah did not. By halftime, the Scotties had built a 32-17 lead and continued to widen the gap through the remainder of the game. More
