H-LP girls come out flat in loss to G-LR

Tuesday, January 5, 2016

The Harris-Lake Park girls basketball team exited the winter break with a bit of rust, as the Wolves fell 56-45 in a road contest against George-Little Rock on Monday.

H-LP coach Ashley Fisher said her squad came out flat against the Mustangs.

"Turnovers were huge in the first half. We came out a little bit flat," she said. "We turned the ball over way too many times and couldn't get good shots up. That was a big thing for us. Another was free throws. They shot 36 free throws on the night and made 20; we only shot 13 and made eight. Between turnovers and free throws, the result could have been much different."

The Wolves trailed 6-5 after one quarter and 26-14 at the half.

In the second half, the Wolves cut the lead to 11 at 41-30 before playing even in the final stanza.

Jazmin Voehl led the Wolves with 15 points on the night. Taylor Meyer scored 11 and Katherin Ihnen had 10 points for H-LP.

With the loss, H-LP dropped to 4-6 overall on the year. The Wolves will look to get back on track with a pair of home games to close the week.

"We have some potential to get the monkey off our back," Fisher said. "I'm hoping that they have the confidence that they have a chance in every game we have left to play as long as they play up to their potential."
