W.R. Myers Rebels girls basketball team dropped both of its league games this past week, starting off with a 66-51 home loss to Cardston Cougars on Friday night.
The Rebels were tied with the Cougars at 39 with seven minutes left in the game until the opposition pulled away.
“This game a was a real struggle offensively for both teams. In the fourth quarter, Cardston got a few outside shots to drop and we just couldn’t recover the difference,” said Kenney Wood, head coach of the W.R. Myers Rebels varsity girls basketball team.
Alex Haller poured in 17 points for the W.R. Myers Rebels.
The Rebels traveled to Raymond on Saturday to battle the Comets and were defeated 80-56.
“Playing Raymond is always tough and it was a bit tougher on Saturday missing two starters,” said Wood. “The girls played extremely hard and Marty, Brandon and I are very pleased with their effort. We hit a very hot shooting team and couldn’t keep up.”
Austen Robbins had 16 points for the Rebels and Anika Steed added 10.
The Rebels host LCI Clippers on Friday at Central School. Junior varsity is at 6 p.m. with varsity to follow. The team then prepares for its Rebel Classic on Feb. 1-2.
