Girls' cagers lost third in a row

The Glencoe-Silver Lake girls' basketball team tumbled to its third consecutive loss in its lone game last week, falling 64-56 to visiting Litchfield on Friday, Feb. 10.

It was the second-straight defeat against a team that the Panthers had defeated earlier this season. GSL won 81-68 at Litchfield on Jan. 13.

The Panthers led 31-30 at halftime, but the Dragons outscored the hosts 34-25 over the second stanza to claim the eight-point win. It was Litchfield's seventh-straight victory and its first win against GSL since the closing game of the 2015 season.

Boys' hoops fall to Litchfield

In its lone contest of last week, the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys' basketball team came up on the short side of a 72-62 loss at Litchfield on Friday, Feb. 10, as the Dragons clinched a regular-season sweep against the Panthers.

Much like the first game between the teams, Litchfield burst out to a massive halftime lead before holding on against a GSL second-half rally.

GSL/LP hosted Canby, Tri-City United and Hutchinson in a night chock-full of wrestling in the GSL gymnasium on Thursday, Feb. 9. It wasn't the kindest of evenings for the hosts, with the Panthers going 0-for-3 against the competition.
