Too many mistakes cost the Spencer girls Friday night as they turned the ball over 30 times in a 39-35 loss at Le Mars. Spencer couldn't get its offense going as they had only 20 points after three quarters.
"All of our turnovers negated all the shot attempts we could have had," Spencer coach Don Martindale said. "It was good to hold a team like that with their athletes to 39 points. Our effort was fine; it was our execution."
Taylor Anderson led the Tigers with nine points, Kirstin Martindale added eight, while Alexa Allen hit two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with six points.
Le Mars was led by Molly Renken's 13 points and got eight from Carolyn Ahlers as the Bulldogs are now 2-4 on the season and 2-2 in the Lakes.
Spencer falls to 5-3 and 2-2 in the Lakes Conference. They will host Storm Lake Friday, Dec. 21 at Spencer Fieldhouse.
SPENCER: Taylor Anderson 9, Kirstin Martindale 8, Alexa Allen 6, Taylor Glover 5, Heather Williamson 5, Emily Burns, 2.
LE MARS: Molly Renken 13, Carolyn Ahlers 8, Emily Pick 6, Mary Kate Eckstaine 6, Britney Thompson 6.
