Lady Wolverines battle but come up short against Melba, Nampa Christian

The Lady Wolverines paired up against both the Melba Mustangs and the Lady Trojans from Nampa Christian High School last week, and came up short in both non-conference games.
 Sara Lundberg was on fire from behind the arc, with four three-point buckets, but the rest of the Wolverine squad struggled with their shots and were successful with their shot selection only 26 percent of the time.  
 However, the fast-pace and shooting of Melba proved to be too much for the Wolverines to overcome; dropping the game 53-32.
 Sara Lundberg led the Wolverines with 14 points and five rebounds, followed by Macy Moore with six points. Maddy Erickson, Marissa Moyle, Abbey Shirts and Andrea Bouvia all had four points each and Alex Bittinger had two points.
 Later in the week, the Lady Wolverines traveled to Nampa Christian High School for a rematch against the Trojans.  
 The Wolverines bested the Trojans 50-39 in their first pairing, but the Weiser ladies were unable to repeat on the Trojan home court, losing 34-47.
 The Trojans and the Wolverines battled hard through the first quarter with the Trojans leading 10-9 after one period. The Wolverines returned the favor in the second quarter with Abbey Shirts hitting two baskets from behind the arc and Lundberg hitting one.  
 The Wolverines outscored the Trojans in the second quarter by one point to tie the game 27-27 going into halftime.
 The third quarter was another dog fight of back and forth leads, but the Wolverines were outscored slightly and proceeded to the final period trailing 36-34, but the Wolverines fell apart in the final quarter, as the Trojans shut the Wolverines out in the final period 11-0, and finished the game ahead 47-34.
 Marissa Moyle led the Wolverines with 9 points, followed by Abbey Shirts with 8 points and 7 rebounds.  Sarah Lundberg was close behind with 7 points and 8 rebounds, while Maddy Erickson pulled down 4 rebounds and 4 points.  Andrea Bouvia and Macy Moore had 3 points apiece.
