Wildcats stumble against No. 4 Northwest Florida

NICEVILLE, Fla. — The Pearl River Wildcats hit a bit of wall Thursday night when they took on the No. 4 team in the country in Northwest Florida State College falling 67-21. 

The Wildcats (4-3 overall) could not get their offense going for most of the night and went into halftime trailing 28-13. 

Northwest Florida (12-0) did not let up in the second half matching a dominant first half performance with a great second half of play. 

"I loved the fight we showed for 40 minutes tonight even though the score may not reflect that, " said PRCC coach Scotty Fletcher. 

"Our girls never dropped their head based on shot making and shot missing. Give Northwest Florida a lot of credit they are a very talented ball club and their length really bothered us tonight. The positives tonight were we had 18 offensive rebounds and we got to the free throw line 16 times."


The Wildcats return to action Friday at 3 p.m. when they take on DME Academy.
