Mooresville sophomore guard Chloe Harris draws a dribble-driven bead on the basket with a number of Hough defenders appearing in the rear view mirror.  

Getting its points across proved to be difficult task indeed for Mooresville’s girls basketball team.

Engaging in a defensive-minded affair, the Blue Devils were limited to single-digit outputs in three of the four quarters in being dealt a 39-28 defeat by I-Meck Conference member Hough High.

Suffering the season’s second loss to the Hough in as many meetings Mooresville exited the outing owning a 2-7 I-Meck standard that is included in an overall 7-12 record.

The Devils misfired on their second straight shot at avenging an earlier-loss.

In their own defense, the Devils were able to stymie Hough for the large part of the night as well by holding them to single digits during one period and just barely into the double-digit department during each remaining quarter as well.

The Devils’ offensive efforts were sparked by the successful sinking of at least one three-point shot apiece from teammates Griselda Callejas and Lilly Davis.

No additional individual information was available.

Mooresville headed back into action Friday against a Vance High entry sitting among three teams sharing the I-Meck lead. Results from that affair were posted too late to be included in this edition.

The Devils hit the road for the first time in nearly two weeks when making the short cross-town trip to take on I-Meck foe and arch rival Lake Norman Tuesday night.
