Basketball teams have tough week
February 10, 2022
Last week, the Lady Bobcats played at home Tuesday against Lander.
The game started out strong in the first quarter, midway through the second the girls began to struggle getting the ball across the court.
“Relying on each other as a team seemed to be the big effect with the Cats against Lander with mistakes snowballing against the Ladies as the game continued. The ability to sink shots became a struggle for the Cats as the game progressed,” said coach David Villa.
The Cats had eleven deflections as a group that also hurt the Cats on Tuesday.
“It was a tough game for sure to gain any momentum. It was one to reset ourselves mentally and prepare for the upcoming game against Worland,” coach Villa said about the Lady Cats. The final score against Lander was 71-23 with Mariah Brooks being top scorer with 10 points.
At home on Friday the Lady Cats were up against Worland putting together a good game.
The girls came out more prepared and ready to compete. With 12 turnovers by halftime the Lady Cats had to adjust to different guard play.
Layne Myers and Dazlynn Hunt had to step up with the absence of Kamry Bowman establishing the offense. The second and third quarters the girls did not have a quick transition to stop the Worland defensively.
At the end of the third quarter the Lady Cats would suffer an injury to player Mariah Brooks which Coach Villa believes affected the final score of Warriors 41 and Bobcats 29.
Top scorers for the Lady Cats against Worland were; Mariah Brooks 9 points, Layne Myers 8 points and Ruthann Johnson with 6 points.
The Bobcats Varsity boys team game scores last week were Thermopolis 62, Lander 46 and Worland 66, Thermopolis 44. No coaches comments were recieved at press time.
The Bobcat teams will be in Tongue River this coming weekend.
