Domination is the only way to describe the Lady Tomcats 48-35 victory against South Gallia.

Both halves were a slow start for the Lady Rebels. Trimble went on a 12-0 run to start the first half and an 8-0 run to start the second half.

Trimble led South Gallia at the start of the fourth quarter 42-12, until Head Coach Joe Richards looked to the bench, and that’s when the 30 point lead started to diminish.

After Richards pulled his starters, the Lady Rebels finished the game on a 19-0 run.

“I just wished we would’ve scored a couple baskets in that fourth quarter,” said Richards. “We had a JV team for about the first half of the year and most of them got to play at least two quarters, and then obviously we get them in when we can on the varsity, but tonight getting that big lead, we got them to play.”

Nikki Kish and Morgan Murphy were all over the place as they both finished with a double-double. Kish finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds and Murphy 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Trimble’s defense played a tremendous game as it only allowed 12 points through three quarters of play. Nikki Kish, alone, outscored South Gallia until mid-way through the fourth quarter.

South Gallia made poor decisions, turning the ball over 14 times, and Trimble made sure to capitalize on them. The Lady Rebels only made two shots from the field the entire first half.

Fouling, surprisingly, didn’t hurt the Lady Tomcats too badly. It seemed to be a problem early on, but considering Trimble had a combined 19 fouls, South Gallia struggled by shooting only 15-of-25 from the free throw line by the end of the game and 3-of-9 in the first half.
