(Staff Photo) Cloverdale’s varsity girls’ basketball team hosted North Putnam last Friday evening, suffering a 38-33 loss on homecoming night.

At the end of the first period, the Lady Clovers found themselves down 10-5. The Lady Cougars (3- 14) went on to extend their lead to seven, 17-10, at the half.

Cloverdale closed the gap a bit in the third, scoring 11 to North Putnam’s eight, to find themselves down just four entering the fourth and final quarter of play.

Missed scoring opportunities and fouls also plagued the Lady Clovers, contributing to the fivepoint loss.

“Give credit to Coach Spencer and North Putnam, they played good defense all night,” Cloverdale head coach Matt Langdon said. “They have a lot of length and they did not allow many openings for our offense. Our defense picked up a little in the second half and we were able to put some points on the board but it was not enough to come back and win the game. The last month or so has not went the way we planned, but Monday is a different day, a new team, and an opportunity to put that behind us and get a win.”

Cloverdale was led by Bailee Stevens and Haley Hamm with 10 points each, followed by Abby Walker with six, Angela Pieper four, and Laura Worthington three.

The Lady Clovers (7-11) will spend the week preparing for another county showdown when they travel to South Putnam this coming

Friday, January 30, to take on the host Lady Eagles (9-9) at 6:00 p.m.
