RUTLEDGE-The Cosby Lady Eagles opened their 2012-13 campaign
much like they closed last season.
They were looking everywhere for answers on the offensive
end of the floor.
After struggling to get into their offense for most of the game, the Lady
Eagles tried their best to make up a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter before falling to the
Lady Grizzlies of Grainger High School 47-42.
Cosby (0-1) struggled to get into their
offensive rhythm for most of the game, scoring only 24 points through the first three quarters,
before mounting a rally in the final period.
"Anybody that watched (our offense) - I can't
say its bad, the fans can say its bad - because we didn't run it," Cosby coach Richard Coggins said.
"If we run it and it don't work, that's a different story, but we just didn't run it and that's not
the way we're supposed to play.
"We are a lot better than we played tonight," Coggins said.
