Waterford Dismantles Trimble< < Back to
Early in the first quarter, Trimble’s Sydney Hardy sunk a basket for the Lady Tomcats. It was the first, and only, field goal Trimble made in the 63-9 loss at Waterford.
The Lady Wildcats led Trimble 35-5 at halftime, giving Waterford the option to mix around starters and bench players.
In the second half, Rachael Adams put in for nine points and four rebounds. Brianna Hart in the second half added six points and two steals. Adams and Hart both started the game on the bench.
The game was scoreless for the first two minutes before the levee broke for Trimble’s defense. The Lady Wildcats were dominated by Waterford’s size and the defense grew ineffective.
Waterford was constantly in possession of the ball and took its shots, but the Lady Wildcats were not as successful getting shots to fall. Alli Kern missed her last four shots of the first half and Hannah Duff was one-for-seven shooting. As a team, Waterford was 10-20 for free throws.
Despite playing without the crispness expected from a Waterford squad, the Wildcats were just too overpowering for Trimble to play close.
Megan Ball led Waterford to victory with 18 points and five steals and Kern had 11 points with seven rebounds and three steals.
Trimble (0-2) can get into the win column against Belpre (3-0) on Dec 12.
Waterford will continue its reign as State Champions at South Gallia (1-1) on Dec 8.
