MOULTON — Moulton-Udell’s postseason run came to an end on Saturday night, following a 66-47 loss to Harmony in the district finals.
M-U got off to a good start, owning a 14-11 lead after one quarter of play. Harmony responded by outscoring the Lady Eagles 20-8 in the second quarter and never looked back.
“We played a great game and the kids battled all night,” commented M-U head coach Jason Ogden. “The second quarter hurt but we bounced back and had it to nine points with five minutes to play. We did everything we needed to do to win - I think we just ran out of gas.”
Whitney Harris led Moulton-Udell in the scoring column with 13 points while Brittany Lawson scored 12 points and Ginny Gordon added 10 points.
The Lady Eagles still managed to earn 14 victories this year despite having several players injured.
“I’m really proud of how my team played and we had a great season. We had to battle through injuries and overcome a lot of obstacles this year,” Ogden said.
The contest marked the final basketball game for M-U seniors Brittany Lawson and Ashley Gordon. Lawson left her mark on the Moulton-Udell record books by becoming the all-time career assist leader for the Lady Eagles.
“Brittany Lawson set the school record for assists in a career in this game. We lose Brittany and Ashley Gordon as they have had great careers. Both kids have been four-year starters and will be missed. We have a great group of kids coming back and next year should be just as good,” added Ogden.
Moulton-Udell wraps up the season with a 14-9 overall record and an 8-2 Bluegrass Conference record.
