CLARION â€“ A second-quarter scoring drought would be too much to overcome as Kane lost 42-31 to Redbank Valley in the girls basketball Class AA quarterfinals Wednesday night at Clarion High School.
After staying with the Lady Bulldogs in the first quarter, the Lady Wolves were outscored 12-2 in the second quarter by Redbank Valley, the No. 2 seed in the District 9 bracket.
"We dug ourselves too much of a hole to get out of it by the end of the game," Kane coach Dave Kiehl said. "We were down 16, 17 and got it down within seven or eight there."'
