Thursday’s game was all about turning points for Trimble. The Lady Tomcats (1-1) had their first win of the season against Wahama, 51-12, after dropping the first contest of the season.

“It was good to bounce back and see what works,” coach Tom Hardy said. “The girls have been working hard and it was nice to see that hard work pay off.”

The game started off slow for each team. The teams were neck and neck in the first quarter, ending with the Tomcats ahead only by five. Trimble struggled in the second quarter though, shooting five for 12 from the paint as a team.

However, as soon as the third quarter started, so did Trimble’s dominance over the White Falcons.

“The third quarter we made better shots, made steals, had outside shots,” Hardy said. “I told them to be patient. It picked up more and it all snowballed from there.”

The Lady Tomcats played a match up zone defense the whole night and their strength stemmed from that defense. Wahama only scored twice in the entire second half, a single point from a foul shot each quarter.

Wahama struggled to keep possession of the ball most of the night. The White Falcons only managed to attempt seven shots the entire night.

Morgan Murphy led the Tomcats in steals during the second half and had six steals for the entire game. Nikki Kish was also a key defensive factor with 10 rebounds.

Madi Moore led the Tomcats in scoring with 15 points. She accounted for nine of the 13 points made by the Tomcats during the fourth quarter. Brianna Toth added 13 points in the effort.

Trimble looks to add another win to their record Dec. 6 when they take on the Raiders at Morgan High School.
