RICHMOND — Head coach Becky Carlson was at a loss for words when describing her team’s struggle to score against Santa Fe Trail on Saturday night. 

“I don’t know. I think we’ve had good looks at the basket, but haven’t been able to get it yet,” Carlson. “I think we are rushing when we feel a little pressure, but when that pressure was off we did a lot better.”

The Fillies did not get their first field goal to fall until the final seconds of the third quarter, losing the championship game of the Central Heights tournament 22-31.
