GILMOUR --  “We gave it our all. We put in the hard work, but it just wasn’t enough.” These were Coach Josh Campbell’s words after the Longhorn’s final game of the 2013 season in their loss against Gilmour, 48-40. The Longhorns came back from lots of deficits and kept the game close, but in the end, Gilmour was able to pull away to get the win.
 
The Longhorns faced one of their first deficits early in the game: turnovers. Whether it was nerves or poor communication, the Longhorns struggled to hold on to the ball and turned the ball over eight times in the first half. However, freshman Abby Desimpelare stepped up big for the Longhorns at point guard and helped cut down the turnover rate for the Longhorns. But at the start of the second quarter, the Longhorns were down 7-6.
 
LW hit their second road bump early in the second quarter after losing senior Marissa Spelich due to an injury, who was taken out for the rest of the game. Desimpelare stepped up big in the second quarter, hitting two big threes back to back to give the Longhorns some momentum going into halftime with a 16-15 lead.
 
Gilmour began to pull away, despite the Longhorns efforts, in the third quarter. Going into the fourth, Gilmour had a lead of 33-29 over the Longhorns. LW could not get any scoring going and with four minutes left in the game, Gilmour had a solid 42-32 lead that the Longhorns could not get back from.
 
Senior Lindsey Tomola led the Longhorns with 12 points on the night. The Longhorns finish their 2013 season at 14-11.
