Blazer girls drop 2-point game on the road

FREDERICK, Md. – Turnovers plagued the Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers in a 37-35 loss to Maryland School for the Deaf Thursday evening in a non-league girls basketball game.

The Blazers (1-1) turned the ball over 30 times, severely limiting their chances to earn a victory in a tough environment.

“We dug ourselves a hole in the first half turning it over 19 times in that half alone,” Blazers coach Corey Collins said. “We were able to battle back in the second half by doing a better job creating open shots and playing strong defense. We had a few shots at the end to win or tie that didn’t fall.”

Victoria Price led the Blazers with 10 points, 12 rebounds and two blocked shots. Sydney Wiegand added six points and three steals, and Emmalyn Hott led the team with three assists.

Also scoring for the Blazers were Makenna Morris with five points, Haven Moats and Julia Waltz with four each, and Hott and Braelyn Posey with three each.
