Girls basketball: Indians' offense struggles in loss


"I thought the girls did a really nice job at certain times and at certain times, we left them wide open and you've got to be focused for 32 minutes," Callahan said.

After tying the game at 17-all to go into the half, Shamokin couldn't hang in the game, missing numerous shots. As a team, Shamokin shot just 18 percent (6 for 33) from the floor. Yacko's team-high seven points all came in the first half as well.

"We had plenty of looks...That's the difference of the game (missing shots)...," Callahan said. "That's a part of life. They did the little things and we didn't."

An Olivia Bonshock free throw with 3:32 to play cut the deficit to 23-19. That was the closest Shamokin would cut the deficit as Athens continued to increase it, going up by 11 with 42 seconds to play and holding a double-digit lead the rest of the game.
