  • Despite 24 points from Cortney Edmonds, Meeker could not overcome a sloppy first quarter, succumbing to Stroud 61-55 Tuesday.
     
    The Lady Bulldogs (10-3) roared back from a 19-point second-quarter deficit to tie Stroud at 50 after Edmonds nailed the game-tying 3-pointer with 2:49 left in the fourth quarter.
     
    The Lady Tigers outscored Meeker 11-5 after Edmond’s trey. After a Stroud layup and an empty Meeker possession, the Lady Bulldogs were forced to foul, allowing Stroud to pull away.
     
    The Lady Bulldogs played out of a hole the entire game, mustering just three first-quarter points.
     
    “We just didn’t shoot the ball well at all,” MHS head coach Lisa Pettitt said. The Lady Bulldogs went 17-of-58 from the field (29 percent), including 8-of-31 from deep (26 percent).
     
    Some of the poor shooting could be attributed to illness. Summer Powell, who racked up 22 points in last Tuesday’s 75-52 win over Seminole, did not practice during the week and went 0-for-9 from the field against Stroud.
     
    Edmonds, who supplemented her big scoring night with two treys, was joined by sidekick Morgan Palmer in double figures. Palmer netted 15 points on 5-of-16 shooting from 3-point range.
     
    Stroud’s Erin Riley led all scorers with 26 points. Teammate Megan Womack chipped in 15.
     
    In the late game, the Tigers of Stroud put five players in double figures Tuesday night, riddling Meeker 85-48.
     
    Ryan McElvaney led the way for Stroud with 17 points and Lorin Wood added 15.
     
    Stroud held a 39-18 lead at the half and upped the advantage to 66-35 after three quarters.
     
    Meeker fell to 4-9 on the year. The Bulldogs will entertain Wellston Friday for homecoming.
