Hornet girls close out 2012 at .500

ENTIAT – Unforced errors had Oroville girls basketball coach Mike Bourn frustrated and his team on the wrong end of a 44-34 score after a Friday, Dec. 21, non-conference road game at Entiat.

The Hornets entered a two week holiday break at .500 after the loss.

“We just weren’t ready to go,” Bourn said. “We had 11 turnovers in the first quarter and a half, throwin passes six feet over people’s heads or at their feet.”

Despite the early turnovers, Oroville trailed just 17-15 at the half. But Julianna Edwards and Taylor Southard keyed a 16-9 Entiat spurt in the third quarter to put the Tigers up by nine.

Lily Hilderbrand scored 18 points and had 10 rebounds for the Hornets (4-4), with Callie Barker adding eight points.

Oroville hosts Pateros on Friday and travels to Kittitas on Saturday, Jan. 5.
