Woodbury girls basketball: Royals’ losing streak hits nine
The Woodbury girls basketball team will probably be happy when January is over.
Most recently, Woodbury got doubled-up by Suburban East Conference rival Park in a 66-33 loss at home on Tuesday, Jan. 24, before being edged by Stillwater 45-42 on Friday in Woodbury.
Ninth-ranked Park (12-3; 8-0 SEC) opened up a 37-15 halftime lead on the Royals then cruised to the 33-point win with a 29-18 second half.
Nobody hit double figures in scoring for Woodbury (5-10; 2-7 SEC) in the loss. Ellie Kreibch and Kayla Bilski led the way with six points each.
Park’s Sydney Lamberty led all players in the game with 20 points. Lamberty, a senior, went over 2,000 career points in the Wolfpack’s win.
On Friday against Stillwater, Woodbury came back from a 28-17 halftime deficit to the Ponies (7-10; 3-6 SEC), but came up just short. The Royals outscored Stillwater 25-17 in the second half.
Bilski scored a game-high 18 points in the loss. Elizabeth Edinger chipped in seven points for the Royals. Paige Becker led Stillwater with 17 points.
Next, Woodbury is at Hastings (1-12; 0-9 SEC) on Friday.
