Axtell’s girls were defeated by Elwood 44-33 in the consolation game of the FKC Tournament on February 3 at the Viaero Center in Kearney. The loss left the Cats at 11-9 but their body of work over the course of the season was enough to earn them the number one seed going into the D-2 8 subdistrict tourney on February 12-15 at Southern Valley High School.
Elwood got out to a 15-10 lead after the first quarter and doubled up Axtell 10-5 in the second period for a halftime lead of 25-15.
The Lady Pirates had another five-point advantage in the third quarter, 14-9, to go ahead by 15, 39-24. The Lady Cats then cut into Elwood’s margin in the fourth with a 9-5 edge.
