FORT DEFIANCE – Fort Defiance opened its girls basketball season Wednesday night with a narrow 32-29 win over Monticello.
The Indians actually built a 15-point lead, but poor foul shooting made the game closer than it probably should have been. Fort shot 10-of-30 from the free-throw line, a number that didn’t make head coach Patrick Hartley very happy.
Faith Farley and Julia Frazier led the Indians with eight points each. Cailin Wright had five rebounds for Fort.
Fort Defiance returns to action Friday night when it travels to Stuarts Draft.
