Gilmour 62, Lutheran West 43

The Lutheran West Girl’s Basketball team opened their season with a disappointing 62-43 loss at home versus the GIlmour Lancers. The team was able to contain the Lancer’s biggest threat, 6’2” junior Jess Janota to only 10 points in this year’s rematch after surrendering 26 to her last year. The rest of Gilmour’s team was able to pick up the slack, however and took advantage of Longhorn mistakes.

Right from the start, the Longhorns fell behind quickly, only scoring 5 points in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the team was able to pick up their game finishing with 18 points but also surrendering 30 to the visitors.

Down by 12 at the half, Lutheran West knew they would have to play stellar if they wanted to pull out the upset. The Longhorns, however weren’t able to do that and instead gave 19 more points to the Lancers. LW was unable to come back in the fourth quarter and ended up with their first loss.

Although Gilmour was a formidable opponent, they weren’t unbeatable. LW however was not playing their best. The Longhorns struggled to come and play together as a team and surrendered 24 turnovers due to careless and miscommunicated plays. The team will need to build on this start and learn from their mistakes in order to have a successful season. 

Lindsey Tomola led the Longhorns with 16 points. Lutheran West travels out to Keystone on Saturday for their first conference match-up.
