The Meadowview Christian Lady Trojans kept it close early, but fell behind in the second half, as they lost 41-21 to the Cornerstone Christian Lady Chargers at home on Tuesday.

Elyse McIntyre, head girls basketball coach of Meadowview Christian School (0-2), said her team played hard and is continuing to show improvement.

“My girls hustled. They did what they could do. We’ve just got to get a little better on blocking out, rebounding,” McIntyre said. “We passed the ball better and we didn’t panic as much. We’re young, but we’re growing, and that’s all I can ask for.”

Meadowview went into halftime trailing by only eight points at 20-12, but Cornerstone pulled away in the third with baskets from Brooke Calma, Amber Johnson, Megan Atchison and Karch Goodwin, as the Lady Chargers outscored the Lady Trojans 14-0 in the third quarter.

Johnson led Cornerstone with 28 points.

Claudia Kendrick led Meadowview with 10 points, while Christina Dabit had 7 points, including two 3-pointers for the Lady Trojans.

Meadowview Christian will take the floor again Thursday at Cornerstone starting at 4 p.m. in their final game before the Thanksgiving break.

Meadowview will then return on Nov. 26 at Eastwood.
