The Chargers finished the third on a 13-6 run.
“We went brain dead again. We just didn’t recognize what was going on,” Danville coach Terry Hammons said. “They just ran a simple two-man game. It was not the fault of the two people guarding the ball or guarding the screener, it was everybody’s fault. People away from the ball were just stuck in the mud.”
The Warriors struggled offensively with 18 turnovers and 31 percent shooting from the field.
“It wasn’t so much shots going down, we weren’t ready to score,” Hammons said. “Different people at different times had scoring opportunities and we caught the ball and we weren’t in triple threat. We just caught the ball standing up and couldn’t do anything with it.”
North Montgomery senior Becka Myers scored a game-high 31 points and added seven rebounds. Myers took advantage of good post position all evening.
“She did what we want our players to do,” Hammons said. “She did all the simple things. She didn’t do anything fancy and flashy. When they got the ball into her, she finished. She was ready to score.”
Sophomore Morgan Bear was the only Warrior to score in double figures with 12 points. Chelsea Gould added eight and Allie Lake scored seven.
Even in defeat, Hammons knows his team has better showings ahead.
“They’ve got to start believing a little bit more in themselves,” he said. “The scoreboard made this look a lot worse than what the two teams are. I think we are pretty good and we have some capabilities. We just let those little things magnify and it made a huge difference on the scoreboard.”
