FIRTH â€” Fresh off of a disappointing loss to their neighbor Shelley the night previous, the Firth Lady Cougars returned home for a date with cross county rival Aberdeen on Wednesday evening. Firth showed no ill signs from the Shelley loss though as they sprinted to a 22-2 first quarter advantage and then kept the Lady Tigers at arms length for the remainder of the evening for the 58-39 non-conference victory.
"We really stressed being mentally tough and to not have a let down after last nights tough loss," Firth head coach Sharla Cook said. "I was proud of the way that the kids came out and started the game tonight."
Firth opened with 20 straight points before Aberdeen finally broke the seal on the rim as Taylor Wallace got the Lady Tigers on the board with :23 remaining in the quarter.
