The Berthoud Lady Spartans girls’ basketball team lost 60-35 to Fossil Ridge at home Tuesday night.
The loss dropped Berthoud to 4-6 overall, 3-4 in the 4A Northern Conference.
“We keep pulling ourselves out of the game,” said junior Amy Ekart. “We just got to focus and have fewer turnovers. We need to be patient and run our offense until we get open shots.”
Fossil Ridge led 31-17 at halftime, but the Spartans never let down. But turnovers and a tough Fossil Ridge defense were too much to overcome.
“I think that we came out strong, but we began to defeat ourselves with turnovers and bad decisions,” senior Rose Heaphy said.
