KEMMERER — The Lady Rangers played a good game against the Mountain View Lady Buffalos on Thursday, Dec. 20. This was the ladies first appearance in front of their hometown fans and they did not disappoint. The girls scored some baskets right away, but then started making some mistakes. They went into halftime down 16-23 and played a more aggressive game after the half.

“We played great defense in the second half, giving up only six points,” said coach Nate Reinhardt. “The girls ran a few different defenses and ran the ball very well.” They were also very aggressive with the Buffalos.

With only 36.6 seconds left in the game the teams were tied 29-29 when Madison Vickery stepped up to the free-throw line, making both baskets. That put Kemmerer ahead 31-29. The Lady Rangers made two more penalty shots before the end of the game, which brought the final score to 33-29.

“The girls did a great job responding in the second half,” said Reinhardt. “We have talked about not hanging our heads and just working as a team to get where we need to be. The girls brought the effort in the second half and showed what they are capable of doing — they made their coaches, families and community proud of how they worked.”

The Rangers did not fare so well during their Thursday, Dec. 20, matchup with the Buffalos. The boys came out strong through most of the game, keeping the score within five points. With 7 minutes and 49 seconds left on the game clock, the boys were tied 30-30. But because of a lot of turnovers, missed baskets and a little bit of showboating. the boys fell to Mountain View 35-44.
