The Cordell High School Lady Blue Devils held top-20 ranked Mangum to 32 points, their lowest offensive output this season, but had a difficult time finding the basket and fell 21 to 32. “Mangum is a really good team and we knew it would be a tough game, but we were looking forward to it,” said Cordell Head Coach Jana Rogers. “

We struggled on offense, shooting only 14%, but our defense was outstanding.” At the end of the first quarter Cordell was up 5 to 3 but a 2-point second quarter had them trailing 7 to 19 at the half. “We fought back,” Rogers noted, “these girls keep fighting back in these situations.” The Cordell defense put on a show in the third period, holding Mangum to only three points, trimming the Blue Devil deficit to only 5 points, 17 to 22, as the final quarter began. “We weren’t getting to the line often enough,” Rogers said, “but we only missed one free throw all evening.”
