Arizona – (iTalk)  The # 22 ranked Show Low Lady Cougars fell to the #11 ranked Falcons of Fountain Hills in a hard fought battle at Fountain Hills.  The Cougars jumped out to an early 5 – 0 lead as Kyra Villaba scored the first 5 points of the game for Show Low.  The Cougars led the entire first quarter until  Fountain Hills’ Amelia Charles made the final basket of the quarter.  The 2pt field goal gave Fountain Hills the lead 13 – 12.

The Cougars were outscored 11-10 in the 2nd quarter, but were only down by 2 points at the half.  The score at intermission was Show Low 22 – Fountain Hills 24.  The Cougars struggled through a disappointing 3rd quarter that would ultimately be too difficult to recover from.  They scored only 8 and gave up 17.   Despite being down by 11 points at the end of 3 quarters of play the Cougars staged a valiant comeback in the 4th outscoring the Falcons 15 – 8 led by Shy Wheeler’s 5 points but, ran out of time ending their season with a 49-45 loss to the Fountain Hills Falcons.  The Falcons advance to face the #6 Ganado Hornets on Friday at Chinle High School.
