The South Christian Lady Sailors traveled to East Kentwood on Tuesday night hoping to extend their winning streak to 3 games to open the season. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned for South. Foul trouble, turnovers and missed free throws were the theme for the Lady Sailors to open the game as EK capitalized on the sloppy play to go up by 19 points at halftime. South did not stop fighting and playing hard as they came out with a second half surge to get within 10 points and put the Lady Falcons on their heals. But as foul trouble continued to pile up, it took it’s toll and South was unable to sustain their push. Finally succumbing to the EK pressure and finishing with a 75-50 loss. Gabby Timmer led the Sailors with a double-double posting 20 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. Mariel Bruxvoort, limited by foul trouble, netted 19 points of her own. Kenzie Selvius dished out 8 assists to go with her 5 points and 5 steals and Kendra Kuiper was aggressive on the defensive end as well coming away with 4 steals of her own. South will look to get back on the winning track as they host rival Holland Christian at 6:00pm on Friday night.
