  • The Neosho Lady Wildcats dominated the first quarter, but struggled the rest of the way as they fell to the Marshfield Lady Bluejays, 72-48, in varsity girls’ basketball action at Marshfield High School on Wednesday.
    The Lady Wildcats (4-3) answered the bell at the opening tip and built a 14-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Lady Bluejays (3-1) responded with a solid run to begin the second quarter and the Lady Wildcats never responded.
    Marshfield went on to outscore Neosho 26-8 in the second, 18-9 in the third and then added 21 points in the fourth to keep the Lady Wildcats at bay.
    “We never really responded to their run,” Neosho coach Lance Robbins said. “They kept up the defensive pressure and we did not handle it well.”
    Morgan Rogers led the Lady Wildcats with 18 points, while Emily Harrell chipped in 10, Chelsey Henry seven, Brooke Stauffer, Whitney Wise and Addi Long had three each and Sydney Linny contributed two.
    Van Diggelen led Marshfield with 17 points.
    The Lady Wildcats begin play in the Neosho Holiday Classic next Thursday.
    Marshfield also won the B game, 50-33.
    Linny led Neosho with eight points.
