Lady Devils Take Fourth Place

The Cordell Lady Blue Devils started off strong at the Great Plains Bank Tri-County Tournament in Altus over the past weekend, but couldn’t maintain the momentum and ended up finishing fourth in the eight-team field.

The ladies’ first match pitched them against a tough Navajo squad that had defeated them by 15 points just two nights previously. Both teams played tough and aggressive defense early on, each scoring just four points in the first quarter. But Cordell’s ladies opened it up in the second quarter, sparked by two quick three-pointers from Megan Brown to propel the Lady Devils to a 10-4 lead. Lacey Burch added more fuel to the fire with a trey of her own, extending the lead to 13-4 before the Lady Indians managed to find the scoreboard. The half ended with the Lady Devils holding a five point lead at 15-10.

Cordell’s defense came out of the longer room stronger than ever in the third quarter. The Lady Indians managed just two points in the period, while the Lady Devils dropped in six to extend their lead to 11 points as the final quarter got underway.
