Bush stops Falcons / Girls basketball

After showing improvement the night before, the South Whidbey High School girls basketball team took a step back in a 47-21 loss at Bush Saturday, Dec. 8.

“Played like a young team again,” South Whidbey coach Jeff Hanson said. “I think we were tired from Friday night; (we) kind of ran out of gas.”

The Falcons, who had only seven varsity players, were playing their third game in four days.

Bush led 11-6, 24-11 and 35-15 after the first three quarters.

Adrianna Briggs topped South Whidbey with 6 points. Ella Wood tallied 5, Lexi Starets-Foote 4, Emma Hodson 2, Sammi Daly 2 and Rachel Harder 2.

South Whidbey (0-4) hosts Coupeville (1-4) at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, in the conference opener.
