Hawk girls bitten by ’Dogs, one and done in 2A regional

OGDEN – Different night, same story; only this time, it turned out to be the end of the story.

Plagued by turnovers and a lack of confidence at the offensive end all season, the South Hamilton girls’ basketball team again couldn’t overcome those shortcomings in a 53-47 loss to Ogden in a Class 2A regional first-round game Saturday night.

The Hawks (3-19) committed 28 turnovers and were forced to play catch-up throughout.

“It was the turnovers and we just didn’t have the confidence to end the game,” South Hamilton head coach Kathi Fisher said, noting the Hawks trailed by only one point with 3 minutes to go.

Savana Stangeland, Ella Jans and Kaitlin Fisher all scored 10 points in the losing effort. Sarah Rudy chipped in six points.

Rudy (nine), Fisher (eight) and Jans (eight) combined to yank down 25 of the Hawks’ 32 rebounds.

Maddie Diggs paced Ogden (9-13) with 13 points.
