In a very low scoring affair, the Cape Central girls junior varsity basketball team outlasted Kennett, 26-20, Monday night on the road. The victory improves the Tigers’ record to 15-6.
“I was very proud of our effort tonight,” JV coach Ty Crowden said after the game. “We played solid defensively and rebounded the ball well. Offensively, we were coachable, and I was proud of the way our girls were able to adjust based on the look that the defense was giving us. Overall, I feel that this was our most complete game yet. As a team, we are working hard and applying our progress made in practice, and tonight it was enough to get us the win.”
The Tigers were up 9-8 after the first quarter, and 13-12 at halftime. CHS kept doing just enough to stay in front of the Indians, leading 18-16 after the third quarter. The fourth quarter is the one time that Central had its largest point discrepancy, outscoring Kennett, 8-4.
Kendall Holloway led Cape Central scorers with nine points. She scored all five of the team’s points in the third quarter. “Tonight we were very coachable,” she said last night. “The third quarter started off rough, but we regained control after a timeout. We played together tonight and kept our heads up, which led to a great win.”
Keke Maxwell, Emma Winkler, and Carlonda Wilson each had four points, while Sheeondria Wilson finished with three points India Sisson closed out the scoring with two markers.
It will be back on the road Thursday as the Tigers play at Dexter. Game time is at 6:00 p.m.
