Freshman Maci Babbs scored eight points and Ally Logsdon added seven in an 80-20 loss to Taylorville in girls basketball Friday night.

CHS is now 1-6 overall.

Samantha Fehrenbacher scored the other five points.

The Tornadoes led 69-11 at halftime.

On Thursday, a late-surge by the CHS girls fell short in a 39-34 loss to Urbana.

Junior Ally Logsdon scored 13 of her team-high 17 points in the fourth quarter during which the Trojans went on a 13-0 run. The Tigers, who led 29-15 after three quarters, were able to barely hold on.

A putback by Logsdon moved the Trojans within 37-34.

Maggie Englum, a freshman, scored 15 points.

CHS features 10 freshmen on the varsity roster.

“We are a young team, and in the transition from middle school to high school, there is a big difference in speed and physicality,” CHS coach Shani Iberg said. “It is the little things like passing harder, using two hands, using ball fakes, and just not making a one-hand pass.”

MHS girls fall to Lincoln

Kloe Froebe scored 28 points to lead Lincoln past Mattoon, 57-32, in girls basketball Friday.

Emily Maple scored 11 of her team-high 13 points in the second half while MHS teammate Piper Sanders scored 11.

“Tough one against Lincoln,” MHS coach Troy Haacke said. “We had trouble scoring at times. I thought the girls played hard defense and did their best to rebound against a good Lincoln team. We didn’t show any quit and kept playing for four quarters.”
