Snowflake’s Lady Lobos earned a split in their two games on the road last week. On Tuesday they dropped a 14-point contest at Holbrook, then bounced back with an impressive win at Sedona on Thursday.
Marisa Godfrey kept Snowflake in the game in the opening period against Holbrook, hitting two of her game high five three-point shots. Tycee Coplan hit two regular field goals, but the Lobos still trailed by four at the close of the first. In the second Holbrook netted 16 points and held the Lobos to just 10 to take a double-digit lead into the half.
Godfrey added two more treys in the third to cut Holbrook’s lead to five points heading to the fourth. In the final eight minutes Holbrook pulled away to secure a 56-42 win.
Godfrey led all scorers with 17 points. Jessica Neff added 12; Coplan, 7; Annika Decker, 4; and Courtney Baldwin, 2.
Snowflake made just three of 12 free throw attempts in the loss.
Playing in Sedona the Lobos fared much better. They jumped out to a 12-3 margin after eight minutes and led 29-11 at the half. That lead grew throughout the second half en route to a 59-25 win.
Coplan played well, leading her team with 18 points. Godfrey added 13; Kadi Johnson, 11; Decker, 7; Neff, 6; and Melissa Eich, 4.
Snowflake made five of eight free throws and hit six treys, led by Godfrey with three.
With the split the Lobos moved their season mark to 8-7. After playing at Show Low on Tuesday they will host Alchesay on Thursday, Jan. 16, then welcome in Monument Valley on Saturday, Jan. 18. On Tuesday, Jan. 21, they will see the Alchesay Lady Falcons again, this time in Whiteriver.
