Lady Braves record remains even


By Jerry W. Kram

The Parshall Braves girls basketball team split their games this week to stay at .500 with a 7-7 record. They downed a scrappy White Shield team 56-29 but fell to the undefeated Trenton-Trinity Christian team by a score of 65-40.

The Braves were never threatened by White Shield Warriors on the scoreboard as they jumped out to an 11-2 lead in the first quarter, but the Warrior’s aggressive defense seemed to make the Parshall girls uncomfortable on offense. However, on defense the Braves returned the favor, allowing just one White Shield player to reach double figures. The Braves and Warriors both had their best quarter just before halftime, and the score going into the locker room was 28-13 in favor of the Braves. The Braves continued to dominate in the second half, outscoring the Warriors 28-16 for the 56-29 victory.

"The Warriors played hard and we were in foul trouble a little bit," said Braves Head Coarch Nick Ator. "As much as we talk about not fouling, this was a game where we fouled too much. The girls get overanxious and a little too fired up. Once they get calmed down they don’t foul as much."
