INMAN — It was another winning performance for the Inman girls on Friday as they prevailed in yet another close game with Sedgwick, 43-39.
Inman led by a point at the half and by three heading into the fourth quarter as there was little separation between the teams.
The Teutons, who were aided by the longball as they made five 3-pointers, received 10 points apiece from MaKayla Michael and Macy DeWitt.
It was a rare clunker for the Inman boys, who were outscored 20-4 in the second quarter on their way to a 63-44 setback. Sedgwick led 30-16 at the half, 48-29 after three.
Inman coach Brett Froese took blame for the setback.
“We played good the first minute of the game,” Froese said. “They were faster to the ball, more aggressive on the glass, more physical than us and quite frankly just wanted it more than we did. Very disappointing effort by myself and our team. Obviously I did a terrible job of preparing us this week because we were flat, no energy, just plain awful. We have to regroup from here. I didn't see this coming at all from this team, I thought we were really improving and really starting to be more tougher, but I was wrong. This is quite a few steps backward for us.”
Keaton Case led the Teutons with 17 points and Lucas Barlow added 13.
