Highlassies fall at Cisco

The McLennan Highlassies suffered a tough conference loss on the road Saturday falling to the Cisco Lady Wranglers 82-54.

McLennan opened the game on a 4-0 run with shots in the lane from posts Nadia Hayes and Ashley Moore. The Highlassies continued to lead by four, 8-4, with 7:10 remaining in the first. A Washington 3-pointer pulled the Lady Wranglers within one and a Jones jumper with 6:19 on the clock gave Cisco the one-point lead, 9-8. The teams traded the lead for the next three minutes. The Lady Wranglers began to pull away late in the quarter and led 26-19 after the first. 

Cisco picked up the tempo, and another Washington 3-pointer less than 20 seconds into the second quarter put them up by 10, 29-19. The Lady Wranglers continued to extend their lead through the second and held the 52-31 advantage at the break.

The second half was much the same, and the Highlassies weren't able to recover.
