GIRLS BASKETBALL: Dry spell costs Lower Moreland against Villa Maria

Lower Moreland’s run to the district semifinals was a great one, but you can’t get shut out in a quarter and expect to move on, especially against a team like Villa Maria.

The Lady Lions’ run at a district title came to an end on Tuesday night when they fell to Villa Maria 51-28 in a District One Class AAA semifinal final game at Plymouth Whitemarsh. Although Lower Moreland started off the game on a 6-0 run, it went on a stretch of almost 15 minutes without scoring from the middle of the first quarter to a couple minutes into the third. The Lady Lions outscored the Hurricanes in the third period, but it was far too late.

“We are not deep enough to overcome that,” Lower Moreland coach Rich Becker said. “I think we were a little bit like a deer in headlights. We came out strong, but they pressured us and we got overwhelmed by their athleticism. Our lack of experience in this situation showed.”
