Trimble Tomcats Start Strong While Lady Tomcats Try To Keep Up< < Back to
The Trimble Lady Tomcats and head coach Joe Richards picked up their first win of the season this week, as they were able to take down Wahama at Trimble high school on Dec. 5. The Tomcats were able to win quite easily too as they won 61-29. Joe Richards used his stifling defense that we grew to know last year against the Lady White Falcons in route to the big win.
Earlier in the week though, on Dec. 12 the Lady Tomcats recorded their 3rd loss on the young season. The loss came at the hands of the Belpre Lady Golden Eagles. The Lady Tomcats defense was impressive yet again though, as they only lost 43-29.
The problem in the loss was yet again the offense, like it has been in all their losses. The Lady Tomcats are averaging only 25 points per game in their losses this season. It was to be expected for the Lady Tomcats though especially after losing last years seniors Morgan Murphy and Nikki Kish.
After the short week, the Lady Tomcats move to 1-3 on the season. Next week will be a long one for Trimble though as they will play a total of four games. It will be a big week for the Lady Tomcats as they hope to record a couple of wins and kick start their offense.
For the Trimble boys, they just kept rolling as they the grabbed a couple of big wins as they went 2-0 on the week. The Tomcats got their first win of the week on Tuesday, Dec. 13. They were able to take down South Gallia 62-47. Now, South Gallia has not recorded a win on the season yet, but they have been competitive in all their games besides one, so it was sort of a trap game for the Tomcats, but they were able to handle the Rebels quite handily.
In Trimble’s second game of the week, the Tomcats faced off against the Southern Tornadoes in Racine, Ohio and the Tomcats were able to win 66-52. The Tomcat offense was really running well in the one just like it has been so far this season. The strong offense has gotten Trimble off to a fast start.
The one thing lacking from the Tomcats is size, which could really come back to bite them once they face a taller team like the Waterford Wildcats. Tyler Slack and Kam Curry are their two best rebounders, but they’re only slightly taller than six feet. For now, it hasn’t stopped the Tomcats but we will see if it will come back to bite them at some point throughout the season.
For now, the Tomcats are undefeated and 4-0, but next week the Tomcats will face off against two TVC-Ohio schools, Alexander and Nelsonville-York. If the Tomcats can pull off even one of these wins, then they will without a doubt prove that they are one of the best teams in the area and possibly the best team in the TVC-Hocking.
