Cordell’s season ends in area tournament play against Mangum, 50-35

After a strong run through the district and regional tournaments, the Cordell Lady Blue Devils’ season ended at the hands of Mangum in the first round of the area tournament last week. After a hard-fought battle, the Lady Devils found themselves on the short side of a 50-35 scoreboard in a game much closer than the final score would indicate.

The Lady Devils started off seemingly a bit shaky, uncharacteristically missing several free throws in the opening moments. Despite that challenge, Cordell’s girls played tough defense and managed to post a 9-8 lead by the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter saw the Lady Devils come out strong, running up a seven-point lead before Mangum fired up and closed the gap. When the teams headed for the locker room at the half the score was knotted up at 20-20.

The Lady Devils struggled to keep pace in the third quarter, with Mangum’s girls running the floor and Cordell’s shots not falling. The Lady Devils were unable to overcome the deficit, as Mangum hit clutch free throws to seal their victory as the fourth quarter wound down.
