The Homer varsity girls basketball team fell just short to the Weedsport Warriors with a score of 49-60.
It was a well fought out first half, with the Homer Trojans taking an 11-7 lead at the end of the opening quarter. Still and all, the Warriors kept it close in the second quarter, until they got the lead and never looked back; ending the half with a score of 18-22.
The beginning of the second half became a back and forth affair, until the Warriors got away with a hot shooting streak to take a 20 point lead (28-48).
With the final quarter at hand, the Trojans started a comeback; but Weedsport’s lead was just too great to overcome.
“We had our chances to win, but we missed too many easy shots on offense,” said Homer Head Coach CJ Kudla. “We played great, but give Weedsport and Coach Vargason a ton of credit, they are a very strong and sound team. Can’t wait to play them again in a few weeks!”
Junior Gracie Patriarco led Homer with 17 points on the night. Following Patriarco were sophomore Catherine Apker with 13 points and junior Sarah Sovocool with nine points.
Up next, Homer (2-2) will travel to Cortland for another rivalry County matchup against them on Saturday, February 20th. The game is scheduled to tip off at 11am.
