Lady Cougars lose OT heartbreaker to Eagle Point

 style=The Weed Cougars girls varsity basketball team lost a heartbreaker in overtime on Thursday night against the visiting Eagle Point Eagles, 58-55. The game was back and forth almost from the beginning, with both teams going out to small leads, only to have the opposing team come right back to tie or take a lead.

Weed trailed 49-46, with nine ticks left on the clock in the fourth quarter, when Elyssa Fisher nailed a 3-ball to send the game to overtime. However, Eagle Point would benefit from an official’s call in overtime, and connect on a 3-pointer for the win with two seconds left in the game.

The Eagles went out to a 9-4 lead in the first quarter, but Weed came back to gain a 15-13 advantage going into the second stanza. Two free throws by Cougar Marielle Schnack and a bucket by Destinee Jones, made it 9-8. A trey by Jillian Neel gave Weed the lead, 11-9, with 2:07 left in the quarter. The Eagles regained the lead with a couple of baskets, 13-11. MacKenna Crabill tied it with a hoop, and then set up Neel for a go ahead basket, 15-13, with three seconds left in the first quarter.

Article and photos by Richard Allan

The Trinity Wolves fought their way out of early trouble but could not overtake the Los Molinos Bulldogs in the third place match up at the Liberty Christian Tournament last Saturday.

The Wolves were in chase mode from the start and trailed by double digits for the most of the game. The Bulldogs jumped out to an 18-4 advantage and shot their way to victory. Trinity came to life midway through the third quarter and carried the momentum into the fourth. The Wolves closed the deficit to five points with about five minutes left to play. But, the sharp-shooting Bulldogs pulled away down the stretch for a 67-55 victory.

The Bulldogs hit nine 3-pointers in the contest led by Eric Haley with five treys on the way to a game-high 35 points.

Emmanuel King sparked the Trinity offense midway through the third quarter. Down 41-28, King attacked the lane for the bucket and one. Danny Fischer stole the ball and made the feed to Tyler Harris to cut the deficit to eight points, 41-33. (more…)

How to play Defense

Note the body position and how she always stays between the attacker and the goal…well, except for once, but she made a great recovery. She even manages to defend against a 2-on-1. It was a great defensive play and that’s why you get to see it in slo-mo, as well. (more…)
