Cogs lose BNC East game: For Genoa-Kingston, execution was a major problem Thursday.
The Cogs seemed to handle the Marengo press well, but once they tried their offensive sets, everything seemed to fall apart.
The Cogs made only four field goals in losing to Marengo, 38-11.
“We need to decide to become more mentally tough and take care of the basketball,” G-K coach Kyle Henkel said. “The things that went wrong are things we can change.”
The Cogs (2-7, 0-3 BNC East) had more turnovers than shot attempts in the first quarter, 10 to 8, and the mistakes continued to pile up throughout the game.
Marengo had trouble executing at times, as well, but benefited from a 15-2 run to start the game, when the Cogs scored their first field goal at the 2:24 mark of the second quarter.
Alanna Carroll led the Cogs with four points.
Royals fall: Byron beat Hinckley-Big Rock, 60-35. Jacqueline Madden led the Royals (4-4) with 13 points. Lauren Paver added six, and Abbie Tosch finished with five.
Humes leads Bobcats in loss: Allison Humes scored nine points and added five rebounds for Somonauk against Newark, but the Bobcats (4-5, 1-2 LTC) lost, 58-32.
Spartans top Barbs: Alex Burchard had a 698 series for Sycamore, leading the Spartans to a 3,810-3,424 win over DeKalb. Kyle Bonnell had a 673 for Sycamore.
"It was a big win for us tonight, big confidence boost for our team," Sycamore coach Aaron Williams said. "Our team is starting to gel together and hopefully they can continue bowling well."
Sean Mattingly had a 621 for DeKalb, while Will Todtz finished with a 608.
Sycamore gets win over DeKalb: Kayla Webb had a 654 series for Sycamore in a 3,263-3,096 win over DeKalb. Dani Pivonka had a 538 for the Spartans, and Lindsey Yunker had a 507.
