SWITZ CITY -- The Clay City Eels played conference foe White River Valley to a 25-all deadlock after the first half, but the Wolverines proved too much to handle in the second half of a 66-48 WRV win.

"(WRV) came out and executed better in the second half better than we did. That's just the way the game goes," said Clay City coach Keith Jones. "I just hope we can take this game and build off it. Hopefully, by February, we'll be able to execute and do things better than we're doing them now."?

The Eels got a 16 point performance from junior post, Britney Glass, but hit just 18-of-45 from the field in the game.

?"Britney was more active tonight and that was good for us because we needed her to be more active," said Jones. "They've got some good inside players and they caused us a lot of problems because we've got match up problems with their size."

Sophomore Stephanie Fougerousse did plenty of damage inside for the Wolverines, scoring 22 points and hitting nine-of-12 from the field.

Overall, the Wolverines hit nearly half of their 53 fieldgoal attempts, going 26-of-53 overall despite hitting only 10-of-19 from the free throw line.

Angie Camp scored 13 for the Eels and Clay City got nine from Emily Reed, but no other Eels scored more than four.

"We were able to do some things, both defensively and offensively in the first half that kept us in the game," commented Jones. "I thought we were controlling the game, somewhat, in the first half. In the second half we weren't able to execute quite as well and they executed better. They got control and that was the ball game."

The victory moves White River Valley to 6-0 on the season and 3-0 in the SWIAC Conference. The Eels drop to 2-2 overall and will host Riverton Parke on Thursday at 6 p.m.
