Fillmore Central sophomore Morgan Malley had 23 points against Kingsland, hitting eight of 13 shots from the field and four of six from the free throw line in a 57-48 Three Rivers Conference loss to the Knights. She was also three for six from three-point range.
"It was a fairly good game for us," said coach Sarah Tollefsrud. "We certainly need to clean up our passes, and we made way more mistakes than Kingsland, but I thought our girls outworked them." The Lady Falcons had 21 turnovers in the game.
Leah Scheevel had 11 points, hitting four of six from the field, including one of one from long range. She was two for two from the line. Freshman Larissa Armstrong had four points, hitting one of two from the field and two of three from the charity stripe. Also scoring for Fillmore Central were Jordan O'Connor (4), Kayley Olson (1), eighth grade Kenzie Broadwater (3) and Kaitlynn Aug (2). Aug was also the leading rebounder with four. Scheevel led the team with three steals.

High scorer for Fillmore Central in the 64-28 loss to Chatfield were Morgan Malley (8) and Jordan O'Connor (7). "Chatfield is a tough team," said Tollefsrud. "We really struggled defending their bigger girls inside. I thought we had spurts of good offensive and defensive play throughout the game. Losing is frustrating, but I do believe playing these tougher teams is going to benefit us towards the end of the season. The girls just need to keep working, keep learning and be patient and good things will come," concluded Tollefsrud.
