FORT MADISON – The Fort Madison Bloodhounds got seven points from Sarah Bernhart and five each from Taylor Shannon, Anna Kester, and Braxtyn McGhghy in a 26-45 loss in girls Southeast Conference action Friday night at the Hound-Dome.
The Hounds were in the game through three quarters, but a 3-13 run toward the end was too much to overcome as the Hounds fall to 0-17 on the year.
Fort Madison was only down six points at the half 25-19. Their defense held the Panthers to just seven in the third period, but the Hounds could only muster four points themselves and then the Panthers ran away with the game in the final period.
Maddie Rashid had four points to round out Fort Madison’s scoring. Kester and Shannon led the Hounds with six boards each. McGhghy and senior Kamryn Bailey each had five rebounds for Fort Madison.
The Hounds travel to Central Lee tonight for a girls/boys jv/varsity set before hosting Washington at home on Friday.
