Yuma girls postseason hopes for life support – Yuma Pioneer

All hopes of reaching the postseason with 24 teams probably went out the window on Tuesday evening when the Indians in Haxtun dropped a decision between 39 and 29.

Yuma is now 1-7 overall, 1-4 in the Lower Platte Activities Association game. The Indians have to somehow win the rest of their remaining six games to even get an outside shot to advance to the postseason field of 24 teams in 2A.
They had a tough performance from start to finish at Haxtun but still had a chance of a win with less than 2 minutes of play.
Another tough night of shooting and fighting against pressure in court condemned the tribe. The Indians shot 25 percent for the game, made 11 out of 44 tries, and made 33 turnovers. Seven players had at least two turnovers and four had four or more turnovers that were around eight.
The Indians again showed the resilience of a winner. They fell behind 28-14 in the third quarter but rallied to pull within two, 31-29, by 1 minute and 31 seconds. Missed shots and turnovers, however, opened the door for Haxtun to freeze the game with the last eight points.
Lea Richardson had a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, Ema Richardson nine points and 13 rebounds, Meidi Reyes three points and two rebounds, Elle Roth two points and 10 rebounds, Emma Rayl two points and two rebounds, and Josslyn Munoz one rebound .
The Indians will meet Akron on Thursday, February 18 at 5:30 p.m.
