Tayler Courchesne continues to be the offensive leader for the Wildcats, dropping in 14 points and grabbing 15 rebounds over the last two games, but the scoring drop-off behind her has been precipitous.
Jarrett Niles has contributed seven points over the two games, while Morgen Janovsky and Sadie Boyd each added three points in the loss to West Rutland.
“We were competitive throughout the game, and improved in the turnover department,” head coach Buddy Hayford said of the West Rutland game. “All 10 girls saw minutes and made contributions.”
The Green Mountain tilt, however, proved the Wildcats’ most difficult challenge so far, as they managed just five points in the first half. Twin Valley did have a promising end to the game defensively, holding Green Mountain to just two points in the fourth quarter.
“We just need to find more scoring than just Tayler,” Hayford said. “We’ve had a number of players add points, just not enough. But we continue to be a work in progress, and as long as we keep seeing improvement, then we should see some wins at some point.”
The season continues today for game two of the Green Mountain Holiday Tournament, against Black River. The girls return to action on Wednesday, January 3, at home against Springfield at 7 pm.
