Lady Trojans drop nail biter in Ennis
ENNIS – The Lady Trojans had their eight-game win streak snapped in Ennis Friday night, dropping a close game to the Mustangs 44-42. Drummond falls to 8-2 on the year.
After taking a five-point lead at the end of the first period, 11-6, Drummond fell behind the host Mustangs at halftime 20-17. The Lady Trojans pulled back within one 31-31 at the end of three, but couldn’t overcome Ennis is the final eight minutes.
“The girls played hard for four quarters,” observed DHS Head Coach Nate Bignell. “It was a good game for us to see what we need to work on. I'm proud of the way they played. We’ve got some work to do and I know the girls are up for the challenge.”
