Northwestern A/Southwestern A Tip-off Tourney

The Polson Lady Pirates girls’ basketball lost three consecutive games to Stevi, Hamilton, and Whitefish to begin their season. Lady Pirates coach Juan Perez is still experimenting with his team’s roster after he saw the results of the Missoula Tip-Off Tournament. “What I am looking at is developing a starting five that gets us going quick,” Perez said. “We are finding players who will come in and keep up the momentum. Right now, my seniors have been my starters. Some underclassmen were working pretty hard and it motivates the seniors also to pick the ball up a little.”

Perez sees a lot of potential in his team, in spite of losing three consecutive games.

“I see our team’s potential in certain spurts of the game,” Perez said. “There are times (during the game) that I see they get it. Then at other times (during the game), they forget it. I know the potential is there. It is getting them to play with that potential, and it’s getting them to play with that potential the whole game, not just a quarter or two.”

The Lady Pirates continue to shuffle players in and out of their starting rotation. “I hope the players aren’t worried about who starts more than who finishes the game,” Perez said. “Those players who played in the last few minutes of the game are in there because they are producing and finishing the game where it is most important.” The Lady Pirates will travel to play Corvallis Thursday at Corvallis High School. “Defensively, we need to be stronger and recognize when we need to help a teammate out,” Perez said. “We even need to recognize that we aren’t doing the stuff defensively that we need to. Hopefully, we can make some of those changes this week.”

Frenchtown races past Polson

Frenchtown 56, Polson 16

POLSON: Against the Lady Broncs, the Lady Pirates tasted their first lead of the season after a quarter of play, leading Frenchtown six to five.

But the duration of celebration would be short lived as the Lady Broncs reined in their rivals by tightening the defensive noose that squashed space needed to operate with proficiency, resulting in several transition points that expanded the margin of separation.

Alex Pierre and Karly Lawson combined for a dozen points, while Pierre and Misty Tenas collaborated on hauling down 10 boards.
