Fillies fall to TVCC

Weronika Nowakowska sets up the play against TVCC on Jan. 9.

Despite a hard-fought battle that included 13 lead changes and 8 ties, the Fillies could not pull out the upset, falling to #2 Trinity Valley 62-69 on Wednesday, Jan. 9 in the Arthur Johnson Gymnasium at Panola College.

A 6-0 run in the first 1:20 of the fourth quarter by the Cardinals proved too much for the Fillies. They couldn’t recover from the deficit and could not cut it under seven the rest of the contest despite valiant effort.

The Fillies were led in scoring by Maria Adashchyk who had 18 points, followed by freshmen Jolie Williams, Nydier Riak and Kellymat Zapata-Ramirez with 8 apiece. Wera Nowakowska, Daryna Barcharova and Mikayla Etienne each recorded score stats in the book as well.

The Fillies (7-7, 3-1) look to bounce back on Saturday, Jan. 12 when they head to Coastal Bend Community College to face the Cougars at 2 p.m.
