LaSalle Lady Tigers win at Montgomery

LaSalle Lady Tigers win at Montgomery

The LaSalle Lady Tigers are falling hard in district play. The girls went on the road last week to take on Montgomery and picked up a hard fought win. The Lady Tigers have been working hard every day to overcome the adversity that has hindered the season.

Injuries have played a tremendous role in this current district record, but it would be against Montgomery that everything would come together.

The Lady Tigers would bust out of the loss column with Bree Hester scoring her person best 28 points and allowing Kenzie Long some breathing room during this game. Kenzie has faced a box in one defense all season and yet still managed to average 20 plus points per game.

LaSalle Tigers drop a close one on the road

LaSalle Tigers drop a close one on the road

The LaSalle Tigers have had some great battles over the last couple of games as they put up a good showing against Block, Northwood, and Logansport. In the fourth quarter of each contest the Tigers have tied or taken a lead in each game.

These Tigers are fighting every game until the final horn. The current record doesn’t reflect how hard these guys are playing every game. They are also doing this with missing pieces of the team. Several guys have missed games for one reason or another, but no matter what Tigers take the floor they are fighting every step of the way.
