When it comes to breaks this basketball season, they have been few and far between for the Lady Buccaneers of Briarwood Academy.
They suffered another loss at home Jan. 13 when they fell to the visiting Brentwood Academy Lady Eagles of Sandersville. The final score was 33-31.
The Lady Buccaneers of head coach Clayton Parrish played a pair of games over the weekend. Results of those games, however, were not available on Monday because students and teachers had the day off as a holiday. Information about those games and the ones being played this week will be included next week.
"We didn't play as well as I thought we should have," said coach Parrish. "We should have won that game."
The loss dropped the Lady Buccaneers to 9-4 and 3-2 in GISA Region 1-AA play.
The Lady Buccaneers had trouble hitting field goals the entire game.
"I think that was the real difference in the outcome of the game," coach Parrish said. "We just missed way too many easy shots."
In close games, that spells the difference between a win and a loss, he said.
Coach Parrish attributed some of his team's problems to bad weather conditions that forced the closure of school three days last week.
"We didn't get to practice as much as we normally do because of the snow and ice storm," he said.
It was the closest loss of the season for Briarwood Academy.
Senior point guard Maria-Celeste Johnson was the high-scorer for the Lady Buccaneers with 9 points. Rachel Coxwell scored 8.
