    (MIKE WILLIAMS | THE GRAHAM LEADER) Rachel Grimsley scores on a layup following a steal by Erica Popplewell in the second quarter of the Lady Blues’ 50-47 loss in Tuesday’s season opener against Haskell. Grimsley finished the game with 13 points and eight rebounds.

Lady Blues comeback bid falls short

The Lady Blues showed a glaring need for improvement in Tuesday night’s season opener at Graham High School. Turnovers led to a 14-point deficit in the second half. The Lady Blues also proved to have some traits to build upon after drawing even late in the fourth quarter. However, the comeback attempt fell short as the Lady Blues were defeated by the Haskell Maidens 50-47.

The first half was plagued by fouls and turnovers from both sides. The Maidens made the best of their takeaways, scoring 14 points on 22 turnovers by the Lady Blues in the first half.

“Haskell likes to speed the game up faster than you can play,” Lady Blues coach Ky Graham. “We made a lot of bad plays in the first half that we needed to clean up.”

The Lady Blues were able to keep the game close in the first quarter with an advantage in defensive rebounds. As a team, the Lady Blues combined for 28 defensive rebounds in the game.
