Lady Coalers fall to Streator

The Coal City varsity girls basketball team suffered a loss in their final game of the regular season on Thursday.

The Lady Coalers led most of the contest before Streator battled back to win it, 51-48.

"It was another tough loss for us this week," said head coach Brad Schmitt. "We have to learn from this and move onto next week with a new outlook."

Coal City entered Regional action as the sixth seed on Tuesday. They faced Rich Central (fourth seed).

In the Streator game, the Lady Coalers struggled to convert offensively, but still managed to hold a 40-35 lead heading into the final frame.

The Bulldogs came out swinging in the fourth, recording their biggest quarter of the night (16 points), as Coal City mustered eight points, relinquishing the lead.

Rour players registered points for the Lady Coaler offense, with Mackenzie Bugg leading the way with 14 points.

Bridget Kauzlaric added 13 points, while Maddie Halliday and Cali Caruso followed with 11 and 10 points, respectively.

The Lady Coalers shot just 28 percent from inside, but managed to stay in the game with great stats from three-point range and the free-throw line.

They went 8-for-17 from beyond the arc, and went 6-for-9 from the charity stripe.

Kenady Clayburn led the team in rebounds with nine, while Bugg, Caruso and Kauzlaric each finished with five boards.

Coal City entered the Regional with an overall record of 12-16 (6-5 conference).
