Waterford Routs Fed Hock Lady Lancers, 68-29< < Back to
Sloppy ball handling and poor communication by the Fed Hock Lady Lancers (0-4, 0-1) widened the gap early as the Waterford Lady Wildcats (1-1, 1-0) cruised to a 68-29 victory.
The Lady Wildcats jumped on the Lady Lancers early, going on a 20-2 run to start the first quarter. The absence of Cheyenne Singer hurt the Lancers, as the Lady Wildcats were able to assert themselves in the paint.
The Lady 'Cats continued their domination in the second quarter, as they pushed their lead to 30 points. When both teams headed into the locker room, the Lady Lancers faced a 42-12 halftime deficit.
Waterford came out on fire in the third quarter, expanding their lead to 38 points. At the end of the third quarter, Waterford lead 60-22.
The Lancers stepped up their defense in the fourth quarter, but it was too late. Waterford left McAfee Gymnasium with the win.
The Lancers could not stop the stellar passing of the Lady Wildcats. The unselfish passing opened up lanes on both sides of the paint, and the Wildcats took full advantage.
Regan Porter and Cassie Reed dominated the paint for the ‘Cats. When they weren’t putting the ball up off the glass, they were dishing the ball off to Dani Drayer or Randee Seevers for an easy layup or outside jumper.
Porter finished the night with 14 points and two assists. Drayer finished with 14 points and 5 steals and Seevers finished with 11 points, 3 steals and grabbed two boards.
One bright spot for the Lady Lancers was their team distribution. Nine different players contributed to their 29 points.
“We are going to need to have that type of contribution,” said head coach Jeff McKibben. “We don’t have that one or two players that do it all, so we need to spread it around and it helps build confidence.”
McKibben knew that this matchup would challenge his squad.
“We knew coming into this game that it was going to be a rough one for us,” said McKibben. “We were a little shell-shocked in the first quarter and after a couple of timeouts, I think we settled down. When we settled down, I think we were able to make a little progress.”
The Lady Lancers will look to notch their first victory of the season as they travel to Wahama on Dec. 5.
