Although the losing streak continued, the Davie JV girls basketball team played about as well as coach Lamar Russell could have hoped against visiting Reynolds on Jan. 19.

Davie fell 37-27 despite 15 points from Britany Hernandez, who rolled up 30 in two games last week.

“We had a good game plan and it worked for the most part – just a few mistakes that we have to clean up,” Russell said.

Maddie Ratledge (6), Kate Nicholson (5) and Zahmirah Summers (1) scored for the War Eagles, who fell to 2-7 with their fourth straight setback.

Earlier in the week, Davie was missing one of its top players (Ratledge), dug an 18-3 hole in the first quarter and lost 44-25 to Phoenix Academy. The game was held at Atkins on Jan. 15.

Davie climbed back to 24-13 in the second quarter, but the Firebirds blitzed Davie in the third and overcame Hernandez’s 15 points.

Summers had six. Zariyah Conner and Nicholson had two apiece.
