The Highland Hawks failed to score more than six points in any quarter Tuesday en route to a 30-19 loss against the Wakefield girls basketball team on the road in The Plains.

The Owls held Highland to a season-low in total points and improved their record to 15-4 while the Hawks fell to 10-8.

“Disappointing evening after playing our best game last week,” Highland coach Gary Leake said. “Very frustrating to come out and take a step backwards. At no point did I think we were out of the game, but unfortunately, we just didn't get a key basket to build on.”

Wakefield took a 6-3 lead in the first quarter and went on a 13-5 run to take a 19-8 advantage at halftime.

Naomi Mutombo led the Owls with nine points, while Autumn Sanders had seven and Alexis Smith and Airielle Jenkins had five each. Mutombo had 14 rebounds, while Smith and Sanders had six each. Jenkins and Sanders also had three steals each, while Mutombo and Juliana Parra had two apiece.

Stefanie Hoerner made three of Highland’s seven field goals and finished with seven points, four rebounds and two steals. Michele Micciche also made three field goals for six points and added six steals. Colby Newson had five rebounds and four steals, while Jessica Crew had five rebounds.
