Turnovers and poor shooting hurt the CFHS girls basketball team in two HVL losses last week.
Cannon committed 31 turnovers Tuesday, Dec. 3, in a 54-41 loss to the Stewartville Tigers.
"Kind of a wasted opportunity," said coach Eric Mace. "The girls turned the ball over too much, and we gave up 10 straight points in a three minute stretch. We didn't play as a team. We were only down two points at the half."
Ashly Serres led with 14 points, with Callie Loeschke and Hailey Huseth adding six each, Courtney Woodcock and Katie Noble four apiece, Maggie Rutter three, and Tayler Banitt and Maddie Adel two each. Rutter and Woodcock each had seven rebounds.
The game Friday night against Kasson-Mantorville was a different story, with the Bomber girls bringing their best effort of the season. The score ended up 74-31, but was more lopsided because of some late K-M baskets.
"The girls should be proud of their effort," Mace said. "We knew the game would be tough, but we really made Kasson work for the victory."
One big difference in the game was shooting percentage. Kasson made 41% of their shots to the Bombers 17%.
Woodcock led the team with eight points. Anna Rapp had six, Serres five, and Maggie Rutter, Noble and Grace Rutter had three each.
Maggie Rutter led on the board with five rebounds, and Leah Meyers, Noble and Woodcock had four each.
Cannon hosted Hope Academy on Tuesday. They are at Lourdes on Friday, then host Byron on Tuesday, Dec. 17.
