The loss of two starters to illness played a huge part in the Winfield High School girls basketball team's 65-43 loss to visiting Andale in nonleague action Tuesday night in Ollie Thomas Gymnasium.
The WHS boys fell 74-56.
Seniors Emily Randall and Camden Humphreys missed the game due to illness.
Andale jumped out to a 22-13 first-quarter lead and extended it to 34-23 at halftime before using an 18-9 third-quarter run to pull away for good.
Mana Komori went 5 of 5 from the foul line and led the Lady Vikings (5-8) with 13 points. Emmah Sultz drained a pair of 3-pointers in an eight-point effort. Winfield hit just 13 of 22 from the foul line.
Morgan Bruna led three players in double figures with a game-high 17 points for the Lady Indians (9-4), who were 16 of 23 from the line.
Aidan Harper poured in 23 points in a losing effort for the Winfield boys.
The Vikings (2-11) played solid basketball, but had little to show for it.
Harper buried three baskets from 3-point range, and scored seven points in Winfield's 21-point second quarter that helped the Vikings to a 32-31 halftime lead.
Winfield, however, was outscored 43-24 after the break while battling foul trouble that allowed the Indians (9-4) to sink 21 of 25 from the foul line, including 9 of 10 down the stretch.
Jacob George hit a pair of treys in a 12-point effort for the Vikings, who were 6 of 13 from the line.
Easton Hunter sank three treys and was 6 of 6 from the line in a 27-point effort for Andale.
