The Lady Warriors opened their season with a 41-27 loss to Ewing on Thursday night.
After trailing 14-6 at the end of the first quarter, Neligh-Oakdale outscored the Lady Tigers in the second and third quarters. But the early deficit, combined with cold shooting in the fourth quarter, gave Ewing the advantage in the end.
Danae Smith led the Lady Warriors with 7 points, followed by Kinsley Klabenes and Heather Pellatz with 5 each.
Rounding out the scoring for Neligh-Oakdale were Whitney Beacom with 4; Hallie Knutson, 3; Shelby Keetle, 2; and Kristin Rice, 1.
The Lady Warriors will travel to Tilden tonight to take on the Lady Falcons.
