Husky girls fall to Newport

The Husky girls’ basketball team lost 55-41 to visiting Newport Friday night.

“The first four or five minutes started out pretty good,” Coach Jason Gorham said. The game was initially low-scoring, but then Newport started hitting shots and building momentum.

Newport held about a 15-point lead by halftime.

The second half “was fairly even,” Gorham said. “They maybe extended their lead to about 20 points, and then we were able to cut into that a bit.”

Ashley Danielson and Tabby Trahan led Husky scoring with 13 points each. Sara Brocard added eight; Makenzie Marchbanks, five; and Jenny Hamn, two.
