After leading the majority of the game, the Cubs found them- selves down by 1 with less than 10 seconds left of the game, and the ball in the Cubs' hands. They were able to drive the ball down and get a great shot off before the buzzer only to find themselves defeated for the first game of the season. Although there was obvi- ous disappointment in their first loss of the season, the Lady Cubs played their hearts out and had no reason to hang their heads. Lead- ing the team with scoring was Taylor Schreiner with 10, Lau- ren Libbesmeier and Ariel Laabs with 6 each.
