The Wylie girls basketball team dropped Friday's 62nd Annual Caprock Classic Chick-fil-A bracket consolation matchup to Lubbock High to finish 2-2 over the three-day tournament in Lubbock.

The Lady Bulldogs (10-11) led after the first quarter, but couldn't keep it going in the 55-39 loss.

After leading 14-13, Wylie scored only two points in the second quarter — going 2 of 4 from the free throw line — as the Lady Westerners pulled ahead for a 23-16 lead at the break. The Lady Bulldogs pulled within five going into the fourth quarter, but couldn't overcome the deficit.

Kaylan Adams had a team-high 13 points before fouling out while Caroline Steadman finished with 12.

It was all Wylie to open the second day of the Caprock Classic in on Thursday afternoon and finished with another win in its nightcap.

The Lady Bulldogs knocked off Pecos 68-6 to stay alive in the consolation bracket and then went on for a comeback, 71-56, win against Plainview.

Against Pecos, Wylie used a suffocating defense, that did not allow a point in the first quarter and only two points in each of the next three quarters, and a balanced attack on offense with all nine players scoring at least three points.

Kenyah Maroney led with 16 and Mycala Reed had 12 while Kyla Kelley had nine and Steadman finished with seven.

That momentum did not carry over into the start of the Plainview game as the Lady Bulldogs trailed 19-2 in the first quarter. They would make it 19-9 by the end of the frame and would trail 30-22 at halftime. But a 27-point third quarter turned the game around as Wylie took a 49-39 lead into the fourth and held on to win.

Steadman led the charge with a career-high 31 points, making five 3-pointers and going 14 of 19 from the free throw line. Four of those 3-pointers came in the third quarter, fueling the comeback. Kenyah Maroney added 13 points and Adams had nine while both, along with Indiah Maroney, were key on the boards.

Wylie got an early taste of the competition at the Caprock Classic with a 78-48 loss in its opener against Lake Dallas on Wednesday.

The Lady Bulldogs gave up 42 points in the first half and were never able to get back into the game. Adams had a team-high 16 points while Steadman added 13 and Indiah Maroney chipped in with 10.

Now comes District 4-5A play for Wylie as the Lady Bulldogs host Lubbock Monterey at 6:15 p.m. Friday
