Prescott girls basketball drops contest to New Richmond

The Prescott High School girls' basketball team lost to New Richmond in its first Middle Border Conference game of the season Tuesday by a 56-33 score at PHS.

PHS had the initial lead against NR and trailed only 15-13 and 19-13 with under 10 minutes to go in the first half. But the Tigers went on a 9-2 run to end the ahead 25-13 and further extended their lead by sinking 10 three-point shots.

"We were more consistent in running our offense than our first game but New Richmond shot the ball very well," Prescott head coach Ron Murphy said. "We've given up more than 50 points in our first two ballgames and so have to work on improving our defense in the time off we have before our next game."

Prescott's is off until Dec. 4 when they play at Amery.

The Cardinals, 0-2 overall and 0-1 in the MBC, were led in scoring by Kate Miller's 10 points.
