A slow first half offensively was the deciding factor in a road loss that snapped the Lady Raiders two-game winning streak on Friday, falling to Grayson County 44-38.

Defensively Trinity (Whitesville) played well in the first half, holding the Lady Cougars to nine points in the first and second quarter. However, the Lady Raiders were held to single digits in consecutive quarters as well, sending them into the locker room trailing 18-12.

This would ultimately be Trinity’s downfall, as both teams tallied 26 points in the second half and led to the 44-38 win for Grayson County. Sophomore Kenzie McDowell led the way with 15 points for the Lady Raiders, while senior Josie Aull added 12.

Trinity falls to 2-15 overall with the loss, as they will look to bounce back after a weekend break when they take on McLean County at home on Monday at 7:30 p.m.
