Lady Tomcats Roll Past Green< < Back to
The Trimble Lady Tomcats easily handled the Green Lady Bobcats Wednesday night with a dominating 45-point victory.
The Lady Tomcats forced six straight Green turnovers, which allowed Trimble to jump to a quick 18-0 run to start the game. The team also had another 17-2 run in the second quarter. The scoring drives helped the Lady Tomcats run away with the lead and end the night on top 66-21.
The Lady Tomcats utilized their zone trap press and fell back into a half-court man-to-man defense. The Lady Bobcats could not handle the high pressure, turning the ball over multiple times throughout the game. Trimble’s defense never gave up more than nine points in any quarter.
Senior Nikki Kish had another great outing, scoring 18 points while being just one rebound shy of another double-double. Morgan Murphy also had a big scoring night. She put up 16 points thanks to three 3-pointers even with minimal playing time due to Coach Richards putting in the second string early on in the game.
With this tournament win, Trimble advances to the second round of the Division IV District Tournament. Trimble faces No. 3 seeded Belpre (13-9) for the third time this season. In both of the previous matchups, Trimble has fallen to the Lady Golden Eagles. The game will be played at Meigs on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 1 p.m.
