Glasgow's Amanda Wolff drives past Sidney's Kortney Mayer. Sidney held the Scotties offense at bay, allowing only 8 points in the first half.
The Glasgow girls basketball team ran into their toughest challenge on the season so far as they hosted Sidney on Friday.
Sidney came out with a suffocating pressure defense that stymied Glasgow the entire first half in which the Scotties scored a total of eight points.
"They were a very physical team that we weren't ready for," said Glasgow head coach Emilee Morehouse. "They pushed us where they wanted us to go instead of us going where we wanted to."
Trailing 36-8 to start the second half, Glasgow regrouped in the locker room and came out performing better in the final two quarters. The deficit was too much for Glasgow to overcome though as Sidney won the game 52-25.
Although the Scotties wound up on the wrong side of the win column again, Morehouse saw some positives in the second half play of her squad.
"They settled down a lot offensively and they started to look a little better," Morehouse said.
The improvements carried over the next night as the Scotties opened up conference play against Wolf Point.
The Scotties jumped out to a 15-5 lead after the first quarter and trailed 22-21 at halftime. Wolf Point proved to be too much for Glasgow in the second half as they managed to secure a 53-45 win over Glasgow.
Megan Rasmusan led all Scottie scorers with 15 points while Lexis Synan once again had a solid performance in the paint with 9 points.
