NEW RICHMOND — New Richmond’s big third quarter spoiled Clinton-Massie’s bid for its first win of the season Thursday in SBAAC American Division girls basketball action.
The Lions outscored the Falcons 19-7 in the third en route to a 50-40 win.
Clinton-Massie is 0-7 overall, 0-3 in the American.
New Richmond is 1-4 overall and 1-1 in the division.
“The difference was the third quarter,” CM coach Tim McGraw said. “We can’t afford to have mental lapses. We have to find a way to put four quarters together to win a basketball game.”
Massie was thinking win at halftime. Hannah Doss had seven points in the first half and the Falcons led 22-21.
But Kayla Peterson had eight of her 15 in the third and New Richmond took a 40-29 advantage into the final period.
The Lions hit 6 of 8 free throws in the fourth, just enough to keep Massie at a safe distance. Doss had six in the quarter and led all scorers with 16 points.
