The Comets were held to 7 points in the second half after cutting Hancocks lead to 10. Closing the Pheasant Conference contest, the Comets lost the battle 53-25.
Hillcrest's turnovers contributed to the point drought. Committing 26 tunovers and shooting 37% (10/27) from the field stifled the Comets' ability to stay in the game.
Laura Tungseth led the Comets with a solid showing, contributing 14 points and 6 rebounds. Emma Royce, fighting through a knee injury, wrestled 9 rebounds away from the Owls.
Hillcrest travels to Underwood on Friday night.
