Woodmen axe Quakers

GREENWOOD —  It’s tough to win anytime you can’t put the ball in the hoop.

On Wednesday night, the Plainfield Quakers girls’ basketball team struggled offensively by shooting 29 percent and fell 57-33 to Mid-State Conference foe and Class 4A No. 6–ranked Greenwood.

“We didn’t move and just didn’t do anything that we were supposed to do,” Plainfield coach Curt Benge said. “They have good hands and we got out of sorts because we were trying to get them to move and they got some steals. We just didn’t play the way we needed to play.”

The Woodmen’s Chloe Orrvar and Kelsie Ratliff combined for 28 of Greenwood’s points with 15 and 13, respectively.

“They got three kids on the floor that really know basketball,” Benge said of Greenwood. “And they have four kids out on the floor that can handle the ball and shoot the three.”

Plainfield’s Sophia Wilson and Kyndall Spears each had a team-high seven points.

In the first quarter, the Quakers hung right with the Woodmen. A nice post pass from Plainfield senior DeAnn Cowell to a cutting Spears was good for a layup and foul. Spears converted the free throw to cut the lead to 10-8.

Greenwood responded with an 18-4 run through the second quarter to have a 28-12 advantage before leading 28-16 at half.

At halftime, both teams showed that the game was still early in the season. Each squad had more turnovers than field goals with Greenwood connecting on 11 shots with 12 turnovers and Plainfield scoring seven baskets with nine turnovers.

Wilson made a 3-pointer to bring the score within 12 in the third quarter, but that was as close as the Quakers would get the rest of the way. Greenwood responded when Orrvar came back right back with a three of her own, making the score 38-23.
