Col. City rebounds from first loss, beats North Side
Fort Wayne â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s Lady Eagle basketball team traveled to Fort Wayne to take on the 1-3 North Side Lady Redskins with the hopes of getting back in the win column following a heartbreaking home overtime loss to undefeated Leo.
The Lady Eagles used a pressure perimeter defense to negate the Lady Redskins main offensive threats and balanced scoring to down the host Lady Redskins by a 57-36 score Friday night.
â€śWe knew going in that they didnâ€™t have a tough post presence,â€ť said Lady Eagle Head Coach Amy Shearer, â€śBut we knew that they had two kids who could really put some points up on the board so we knew we had to put the clamps down on them.â€ť
For most of the game, the visiting Lady Eagles did just that, limiting Sierra Miranda to 4-of-14 shooting from the field. Miranda totaled 14 points including a game opening three that put the hosts up 3-0 to start the contest, but four of those points came from the free throw line.
