Lady Jags Come Up Short in Season Opener

December 7, 2016

The Northwest High School Lady Jaguars basketball team opened their season with a loss on Tuesday night at home against Wootton.

   The Lady Jags have returned five seniors, including Alexis Mack and Mariah Ellis from last year’s squad which finished with an 8-13 record.

   The first quarter was close with the Wootton Patriots outscoring the Jags but just one basket 19-17, but in the second and third quarters the Lady Jags had difficulty putting points on the scoreboard. Northwest scored just six points in the second quarter and four points in the fourth quarter, while Wootton was able to build an insurmountable lead.

   The Patriots outscored the Jags 17 to six in the second to take a 36-23 lead into halftime.

   In the third quarter, Wootton scored 28 points while holding the Lady Jags to just four points to expand the lead to 64-27 by the end of the third.

   In the fourth, the Lady Jags found the shooting touch again scoring 19 points, but it was too little, too late as Wootton went on to win their season opener 81-46.

   The Lady Jags will travel to Walter Johnson on Thursday night. Walter Johnson is 0-1 after dropping their season opener to Watkins Mill, 43-38, on Tuesday night.

   The Northwest boys’ team also dropped their opener on the road to Wootton, 65-51, on Tuesday night. Northwest will welcome Walter Johnson to the Jagdome in Germantown at 7:15 pm on Thursday night. The Bobcats 0-1 and are coming off a 54-47 loss to Watkins Mill on Tuesday.
