Weed Lady Cougars Destinee Jones and Jillian Neel set the tone early for Weed’s dominating performance over the Etna Lady Lions on Friday. Jones opened the scoring with an old fashion 3-point play, and Neel hit back-to-back 3-balls to account for the Lady Cougars first nine points. And, that’s the way it would go for most of the game, with Weed ruling the paint and the arc.
The visiting Lady Lions did stay in the game for about the first four and a half minutes. After Jones’ game-opening 3-point play, Melissa Berry scored for Etna, to make the score 3-2. Following Neel’s first of five treys in the game, Jessie Eiler dropped in a freebie, and a bit later set up Marina Gutleben for a bucket, making it 6-5 in favor of Weed with 3:23 to go in the first quarter. After that, it was all Lady Cougars.
Neel started an 11-1 run for Weed with her second 3-pointer, 9-5. Then, Neel set up Karene Marshall for a hoop, 11-5. Marshall came up with a steal and passed to Tyresha Leonard for a 3-point play the hard way, and it was 14-5 with 1:33 to play in the first. Sierra Huckabay got in on the fun with a basket to make it 16-5. Eiler made a free throw for Etna, 16-6. Jones added one from the charity stripe to close out the first quarter scoring, with Weed up 17-6. (more…)Share on Facebook
The first was to improve communication with the club and parents of players. The club needs to develop not only the players but parents who are also committed to not only the specific team their players are on, but also to the club as a whole. It’s important that the parents look toward an active involvement in the 13 plus positions that make up the club’s working leadership.
The second goal is to have all teams participate in at least three tournaments together. Again, this brings all teams together and provides team support at all levels. Ten and under players can see their future in the club and older girls can give the younger teams the benefit of their experience and support. (more…)Share on Facebook
The last time the Etna Lions won two varsity boys basketball games in a row? February 19, 2010–twenty-three months ago. Coming into Friday night’s game against the Weed Cougars, Etna had won just three times in those 23 months, all against the Burney Raiders. They also hadn’t beat the Cougars since January 30, 2008, nearly four years. That changed in dramatic fashion, as the Lions rained 3-balls on the Cougars Winter Carnival celebration, and came away with a 73-65 win. It was not only the Lions second straight win, but also their second straight 70+ point offensive performance (71-60 over Burney on Tuesday).
Weed led at the end of the first quarter, 14-11, but there were already glimpses of the coming Lion 3-point onslaught. With the Cougars leading 4-0 on buckets by Tommy Haosouphanthong and Noah Traylor, Etna’s Colby Rimmer hit back-to-back treys to give the Lions a brief 6-4 advantage. It was the only time Etna led in the first quarter.
Nicky DelaRosa opened up the scoring in the second quarter with a 3-pointer, to tie the game at 14-14. Weed’s Trevor Shaffer answered right back from beyond the arc, putting the Cougars back on top 17-14. However, the Lions then embarked on a 13-2 run.
Kainen Krueger converted a dish from Rimmer into a basket to get the run rolling. Rimmer drilled a 3-ball, giving the Lions the lead 19-17, with six minutes to play in the half. DelaRosa hit a shot to make it 21-17. Rimmer hit from Lake Shastina, to make the score 24-17, with 5:01 to go. Traylor scored to interrupt Etna’s fun, 24-19. But, Rimmer came right back with a deuce and a trey, to give the Lions a 10-point lead, 29-19, with 3:08 on the clock. At the half, Etna was up by 11 points, 37-26. (more…)Share on Facebook
