Girls’ basketball loses home playoff game

This Tuesday, February 19 the Littleton Lions Girls Basketball Team played against Glenwood Springs in the Lions first playoff game of the year. The Lions started off the game losing, throughout the whole first quarter, but began a steady comeback as they entered the third, and ended up at halftime with ten points to Glenwood Springs’ seventeen.

The game roared on with extreme aggression. No team went without more than a few fouls and quite a few scrapes and bruises. Players fought and tugged for the ball plenty of times.

Littleton steadily continued, and although they played hard, they lost the game in the fourth quarter after Glenwood Springs gained an almost insurmountable lead. Littleton lost twenty-six to forty.
