If you are referring to the point guard, she had a sprained ankle or something

if you referring to #32(K.K.)who got dumped based on the team votes,YEAH, we agree that she was a good player for the chiefs.she was agressive and hardnose player that the current players DODN'T have.she would've made the difference if she was still playing and make opposing team look bad.

she was good but not good enought to disrupt KC. and i doubt very much she would have made a difference. She may have given kerr a little trouble like a fly.

I find it sad that you have to resort to what if's and belittling your squad by saying they weren't good enough with out certain players and that 32 would have made all the difference. Shiprock played a heck of game. they could upset kirtland in the district championship game or they could take state.

What about instead of leaving with 3 minutes left all the shiprock chieftan fans stick around and give some energy to the girls on the court.

i thought Brady Rivers coaching sucked!He shouldn't have had the shs girls double team the kc girls because kc has great shooters on their team, which gives them an easy point.and he should keep is starting 5 in there to get the job done and not take them out when they are getting their rythmn.also he should just let the girls play their game instead of running useless plays that kc already knows!c'mon seniors step it up!!!the captain should be getting mad at the girls and telling the coach how she feels about what they are doing wrong, and what needs to be changed.

I AGREE ,THE COACH HAD THEM PLAYING ZONE DEFENSE AND THATS WHY THEY WERE OPEN FOR THE 3s.HE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT BY HALFTIME,AND SHOULD KEEP THE STARTERS IN AND LET THEM DO THEIR JOB.GOOD JOB TO THE LADY CHEIFTIANS .

Good job Shiprock.Its okay to lose a game but your still #2 in the state.Kirtland may be #1 but how many years now have they been #1 and still not win a state championship?.They can go around and think their the best but you have win the championship to capatilize on the #1 ranking.Also the kirtland boys were flaunting around their jerseys but you lost to shiprock tuesday!.You can post your comments but it wont do anything,besides shiprock has your boys and girls trophy from your own webb tournament.GO SHIPROCK !!!!!

Shiprock lost because of the lack of energy and and the coaching. Mr. Rivers admitted that in his statement to this paper. Didn't he say that in the first meeting? Why couldn't he coome prepared this time? And these young girls may have had their last meal on that day at noon, eight hours before game time and on top of that it was parent night. Above all, Kirtland came to play. Shiprock coaching staff did not see the whole picture. NO food,no energy,nervous kids, nervous and unprepared coaches, hours of idle time and a home team who just came from home with fill tummies and came with talent and desire. Shiprock lost when the whole community woke-up that morning. Sorry Shiprock,blame the coaches and a very talented team. I will always be a Shiprock Fan. Things have to change in Shiprock. We'll do great in 3A, state champions every year.

its always hard to beat a team the third time. so the next shiprock vs. kc match up should be a close game. shiprock could give kc a challenge in the next game.

Didn't attend the game but sounds like similar game situation as the first meeting. Almost similar point differential. Coach Rivers sounds like he did after the first meeting. I just hope the girls can just "BELIEVE" and "DISCIPLINE" themselves to want to beat KC next time. I think if they beat Kirtland in next weekend's district championship game, they know they can win State in Class 4A. I know it's frustrating to be #2 and lose to #1 Kirtland twice, but stay focused and play your game. The community and all the critics can say what they want, just "PLAY YOUR GAME Lady Chiefs"! It's been along time since we've had a blue trophy, bring it back to Shiprock! Go Lady Chiefs!
