The Louisa County High School girls’ basketball team faced the Chancellor Chargers twice in the past week and came up short both times.
The Lions hosted the Chargers in The Den on Dec. 11. Louisa managed to stay within striking distance of the Chargers and trailed by one point after the first quarter, 7-6.
The Lions continued that effort in the second period, outscoring the Chargers 8-5 for a narrow halftime lead of 14-12.
The second half was an entirely different story. The Chargers came out in the third quarter with fresh energy and outscored the Lions 21-10 to go up 33-24 with eight minutes left in the game.
The Lions tried to close the gap in that time, with freshman Alexis Chapman putting up nine points in that period to aid the team in its 17-point tally for the quarter. The Lions gave up 18 points to the Chargers in the same time frame for a final score of 51-41.
