HEBRON ESTATES - The first day back at school after the Christmas break didn’t end well for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles as they were rocked at home by Holy Cross 60-37.

This one was over before it really began as the Lady Cougars jumped on top 16-1 in the first quarter and never looked back. North Bullitt didn’t get its first basket of the game until senior Ashley Goeing scored 45 seconds into the second quarter.

That did lead to a short burst by the Lady Eagles as they pulled within 16-8 but the run was short-lived. Holy Cross went on an 18-4 run to end the first half and they were up 34-12 at halftime.

The game was the eighth for North Bullitt over the last 16 days, but head coach Bill Robinette didn’t think his team was tired.

“We’re not tired,” the veteran coach said. “They had three days off and a practice and then a game and then a day off. So, they were not tired.”

What the coach might change is the preparation before the game to try and get off to better starts.

“We’ve had plenty of bad starts,” Robinette noted. “Maybe we need to change something in our warm-ups. We just don’t start well.”

North Bullitt got 13 points each from Breanne Kuffner and Ashley Goeing, but no other player scored more than four points.

Holy Cross got 18 points from 6-1 center Olivia Moore who scored all of those points over the third three frames.

North Bullitt fell to 5-7 overall with their second loss in three days.
