Lady Wolves split a pair of home games

Shiloh Christian 52, Watford City 41
Watford City opened their Region 4 schedule with a 52-41 loss on Friday night. The Wolves offense struggled throughout the first half as they shot 5-for-31 from the field and 0-for-2 from the free throw line.
“They’re a tough team,” said Watford City Head Coach, Tom Dwyer. “They play hard, they’re physical. I think they really just made some hustle plays that we didn’t. They got quite a few offensive rebounds in that first quarter. Our defense was solid to start possessions. We didn’t really allow quality shots, but we weren’t finishing our defense with a rebound. In the end, I think that was the biggest difference. I think we also missed some shots we normally would make, but Shiloh’s tough defense should get some credit too.”
Watford City outscored Shiloh 31-30 in the second half and stayed within striking distance until the final minute. Shiloh’s senior leader, Dedra Wood, led her Skyhawks to victory scoring 10 of her 12 points in the fourth quarter. The individual matchup between Wood and Watford City’s Jessica Mogen was fascinating to watch.
