Girls basketball: Tigers lose fifth straight at NP
A slow start doomed the Farmington girls basketball team in its fifth straight setback Friday night in Richfield.
The Tigers fell behind 29-15 by halftime and couldn't gain any ground in the second half of a 60-45 Missota Conference loss to the Stars.
Sofia Chadwick and Alicia Hett paced the visitors with 14 points apiece. Chadwick added six rebounds, four assists and four steals and Hett grabbed four rebounds.
Abigail Gallus gave the Tigers three players in double figures with 11 points and handed out four assists and Jordyn Homeier hauled in a team-leading 11 rebounds.
The Tigers also came out on the losing end of a conference road game last Tuesday in New Prague. The Trojans improved their record to 9-4 with a 57-41 decision.
Hett was the only Farmington player in double figures with 10 points. Chadwick scored eight points, dished out seven assists and grabbed four steals and Sydney Speer contributed eight points.
Gorden hauled in a team-high eight rebounds.
The Tigers (2-15, 0-6) will try to halt their losing skid tomorrow night when they go on the road to face Chanhassen. The Storm are 10-6 overall and tied for second in the Missota Conference with a 4-1 mark. After that, the team closes out the regular season with six of its final eight games at Tiger Gym.
