Staying steady as she goes wasn’t exactly the preferred game plan for Mooresville’s girls basketball team.
The Blue Devils were limited to single-digit outputs during each of their four periods of play in a 55-24 defeat at the hands of I-Meck Conference opponent Vance.
The defeat also dropped Mooresville to 2-8 in the conference and 7-13 overall.
Vance is not only contending for this season’s conference crown but also boasts a No. 15 ranking in the most recently released N.C. MaxPreps.com 4A girls basketball poll.
The Devils endured their most damaging deficit of the game in the second period for a 28-9 differential. More of the same, though perhaps not quite as imposing, transpired during each second-half quarter as well.
The Devils highlight on the offensive front came from the successful sinking of at least one 3-point shot from sophomore guard Griselda Callejas.
No additional individual information was available.
Mooresville ventured into this Tuesday to take on arch-rival Lake Norman, with results too late to be included in this edition. They return home for the next-to-the-last time this regular season when playing host to Hopewell High.
