Blazer girls drop game to Bishop Walsh

CUMBERLAND, Md. – The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers were blanked in the first quarter and dropped a 45-24 decision to Bishop Walsh Monday in a non-league girls basketball game.

The Blazers (3-2) fell behind 9-0 at the end of the first quarter but managed to keep the game reasonably close until the fourth quarter. They entered the period down 28-19 but were outscored 16-6 in the final frame.

“We dug ourselves a hole with a slow start in the first quarter,” Blazers coach Corey Collins said. “We were able to battle back in the third and get ourselves back in the game. We weren’t able to battle all the way back and fell short.”

Haven Moats scored six points to lead the Blazers. Julia Waltz and Chloe Smith had four apiece, Emmalyn Hott and Makenna Morris each had three, and Victoria Price and Reagan Witmer each scored two.

In the boys game, Bishop Walsh came away with a 65-44 victory.
