Lady Cougars drop pivotal conference game to Garden City

In a battle for a home playoff game, Garden City Community College took another step in securing fourth place by defeating fifth place Barton Community College 61-54 Saturday night in Garden City. With Barton having a chance to tie Garden City in the West standings, the Lady Cougars couldn’t overcome a twenty-seven percent second half shooting performance in dropping to 5-6 in conference play and 15-10 overall.  Garden City, which increased its lead over Barton to two games, shot a mere thirty-three percent in the second half but countered with a twelve point advantage on turnovers to improve to 7-4 in the West and 15-10 overall.  Barton will look to maintain its fifth place in the conference as they take on Butler Community College, 3-7 in conference and 14-10 overall, at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday at the Barton Gym. 

Barton only had two players in double-digit scoring as Devan Boeger scored eleven on 3-of-5 shooting from long distance while Dionne Harris also added eleven.  Netanya Jackson led the Lady Cougars in rebounding with eleven to go along with eight points. 

Garden City placed just two in double digits as well, led by Jasmine Moore’s seventeen and Ashley Walker’s sixteen.  Tamara Jones, who recording a double-double with 29 points and 14 rebounds the last time the two teams met, was held to four points and five rebounds.
