Amery hands Prescott girls basketball team a 55-38 defeat

The Prescott High School Girls Basketball will have to wait until Tuesday's contest vs. Baldwin-Woodville to get its first win in the new PHS gymnasium.

The Cardinals were stopped by Amery Friday evening 55-38. Prescott's record is 2-2 overall and 1-2 in the Middle Border Conference. PHS was playing 24 hours after they won at Osceola 39-32.

Prescott fell behind early due to cold shooting and never caught up. They trailed 20-12 at halftime. Amery pushed the lead into double digits in the second half and the Cards never came closer than 10 points.

Allie Murphy finished with 18 points for Prescott and Heather Furlong had 16 but only four players scored for the Cardinals and no one else had more than three points,
