BROWNSBURG — The Lady Shamrocks couldn’t find a rhythm on offense until it was too late. 

Brownsburg held Westfield to 22 percent from the floor Friday night in a convincing 49-33 Bulldogs win. 

“I think the kids did a nice job trying to get to the rim, [but] we shot dismally,” said Westfield head coach Ginny Smith. “You’re not beating anybody shooting the basketball like that.”

Both teams stumbled out of the gate, with each side mustering six points in the first quarter. A Ryann Bunting field goal and a made bucket and a pair of free throws from Annabelle O’Hair made up the Shamrocks opening quarter-output. 

Brownsburg started to click in the second quarter, however, outscoring the Shamrocks 16-4, helped out in part by 3-pointers fro m Allison Bosse and Ally Becki. Becki scored seven of her game-high 13 points for the Bulldogs in the second. 

The Shamrocks went into the locker room trailing 10-22, but made a run at the start of the second half. O’Hair got the third quarter started strongly for the Shamrocks with five points in just more than a minute of play. O’Hair finished as Westfield’s leading scorer with nine. 

Sophia Kreag, who finished with seven points, and Jade Shipley, 2, both connected on field-goals in the third to keep the Shamrocks within striking distance. 

“We just felt like we needed to be more aggressive the second half,” Smith said. “We felt like we kind of sat back (in the first half) and allowed them to dictate what we were going to do versus us trying to dictate what we were going to do on our own offensively.”

Brownsburg answered Westfield’s run and extended its lead to 36-22 heading into the fourth. 

The Shamrocks battled in the final quarter -- DeCraene and Karley Wininger each sunk a pair of free throws, Bunting made two baskets and a free throw – but the Bulldogs held on for the 16-point win.

Westfield shot 10-of-45 from the floor as a team, and went 11-of-16 at the charity stripe. O’Hair led the Shamrocks with five rebounds to help lead Westfield to a 27-26 edge on the glass. Shipley registered the team’s only two assists. 

Westfield (13-8, 2-4) has dropped its last two games and will look to end the regular season on a high note Wednesday. The Shamrocks travel to take on the Indianapolis Arsenal Technical Titans. 

“We’ve got one game left -- we’ve got to play well this next game and we’ll see kind of what we’re made of,” Smith said. “If we can turn it around and rebound after a loss like this, then we’ll head into our sectional. Hopefully, we’ll get a good draw and make a run here in the end.”
