Flagstaff Girls Basketball Loses in Semifinal

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement
It was a sad end to the season for the Flagstaff Eagles girls basketball team.
Their heartbreaking 52-32 loss on Friday eliminated them from the state tournament. They faced the No. 3-seeded Pueblo Magnet Warriors at Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix.
They had two drastically different halves, which ultimately led to their defeat. Following the first half, the No. 3-seeded Eagles were trailing just 26-23. Flagstaff was fully in this game, focused on securing their ticket to the 4A Conference state finals.

Sadly, the second half took a drastic turn, starting with Pueblo’s 16-0 run that began with just under six minutes to go in the third quarter. Nine third-quarter turnovers from the Eagles made a comeback impossible. They finished with 30 total turnovers, a disappointing result for the talented team. Despite that, the girls can be proud of their successful season and their playoff run.
