FREDERICKTOWN — After one quarter of play, the Fredericktown girls basketball team looked to be well in control of Wednesday’s nonconference game against Clear Fork.

Then, things got ugly.

The Freddies turned the ball over 16 times and scored just three points in the next 21 minutes of game time. Despite the slump, they still kept the game close and fell to the Colts, 29-24.

Fredericktown scored on three of its first four possessions. The Freddies (2-15) took command early thanks to six points from freshman Jacklyn Nussbaum. Sophie Lester added three free throws, and Fredericktown held a 13-7 lead after the period.
