When Jordan Garner has a performance like she did Friday for the Van-Far varsity girls basketball team at home against Mark Twain in Eastern Missouri Conference action, which included 14 points, seven rebounds, two steals aond one assist, things tend to go fairly well for her team.
If that same game Reaghan Case also puts up 14 points, four rebounds and a steal, it's a pretty good bet that somebody or something is going down. Instead what happened is that Mark Twain took a 21-16 lead in the first quarter and then turned that into a 34-21 advantage at halftime before finally defeating the Lady Indians 62-46.
"We didn't get the ball inside as much as we should have and defensively we didn't move and rotate like we have been," said coach Kelly Borchert.
As for Van-Far's supporting cast, Jayle Jennings came through with eight points, three rebounds, one steal and one assist, Katie Elzea added four points, six rebounds, two steals and two assists and Panna Connaway came through with three points and one assists. Alivia Graddy also threw down two points and one rebound and chipping in with one point each were Gina Clausen and Morgan McDowell.
Van-Far is al Wellsille-Middletown today for a league contest.
