Drummond 37, Arlee 34

After holding a six-to-eight point lead throughout most of the game, Drummond allowed the Scarlets pulled even and started working the ball more inside midway into the fourth period when senior Liz Perry collected her fifth foul.

Tied at 34-34, Arlee committed a foul that sent freshman Kimber Parsons to the free throw line where she hit one of two. The rebound on th3e second carried wide and was collected by the home team who promptly traveled with the ball. Moments later 8th grader Remington Cline was fouled and like Parsons hit one of two to give the Lady Trojans a 36-34 lead.

The Scarlets tried a couple of three point shots that nearly found their way in, with Drummond’s Bailey Parke collecting a rebound on the last try and eventually sinking a free throw after being fouled.

“The girls played great tonight we got a lot of thing to clean up but they are easy things to fix,” said DHS Head Coach Nate Bignell.

Parsons led the Lady Trojans with 19 points, despite going 4-for-15 from the free throw line. Lexi Nelson was also in double figures with 11.

Drummond will host Valley Christian Thursday with JV games tipping off at 2:30 p.m.

The Trojans were in the game after one, but the combination of a defensive lapse and an offensive drought put them behind 33-22 at halftime. Despite that Drummond rallied to close the lead to three at one point before the Warriors pulled away for the win.

“We played great tonight,” observed DHS Head Coach Levi Parsons of the non-district game. “(We) fought through some sickness, played with a lot of heart, and pushed a very tough team to its limits.

“We didn't shoot well from the foul line again and we missed a lot of bunnies that could have made a big difference. So it wasn't the win we wanted, but we learned a lot about ourselves as a team. Good things from here on out.”

Colt Parsons led all scorers in the game with 18 for the Trojans, Trey Phillips adding 12 and Scott Parke 11. Brody Rasor had just three points but collected team highs in rebounds (8) and assists (6).
