Big Pine Coach Bob Church, “Pretty much the routine now for the Lady Warriors, as they only scored 5 first period points. However, it was still enough to lead the visiting Tigers 5-4 after the initial 8 minutes of play.  The second period of play saw five Lady Warriors break into the scoring column, with AnahKee Mason leading the way with 6 points in the quarter. Missed lay-ups and free throws again continue to haunt the Lady Warriors, who could have had a much more sizable lead at half.  It was AnahKee Mason again doing the majority of the scoring in the third period as she scored 8  points, but Gena Lewis was finally talked into shooting more than once or twice a game. Gena contributed 6 points, all in the third period. Also in the third period, Big Pine’s 3-2 half-court trap was more effectively creating turnovers, which resulted in more possessions for the host team.  In the fourth Lauren Simpson led the Warriors with 4 points in the quarter- 3 of those coming off a right corner 3 pointer.”

The BP Lady Warriors held on to win the Wednesday night rematch, after defeating the Lady Eagle JV by 20 two nights earlier. Lone Pine outscored BP 17-8 in the 3rd quarter, as the Lady Warriors ran their full court press for the first time this season. The press was not effective and LP capitalized by getting many uncontested layups. Starting the 4th quarter down by 7, 30-23, the Lady Warriors went back to their regular trap defense and got back in the game.

With just 19 seconds left in the game and the Warriors up by 2, an intentional foul was called on BP. Lone Pine still had a chance to win the game after 1 free throw was made and then given the ball out of bounds. However, after several shots attempts, BP was able to secure the rebound and close out the win.

BP Coach Bob Church- “This game was exactly what I feared. We beat them two nights earlier and I knew Liz Stewart was a good coach and would work them hard, going over our trap. LP improved tremendously, were much more scrappy than earlier and hit shots they weren’t able to hit Monday night.”

“I tell the girls it’s a team game and they’re all important to the team. It certainly showed tonight, as all 8 girls scored at least one point, with each point needed in this one. I have to say that I was certainly not proud of the way we played, but I was very proud of all of our girls for not giving up, when we could have easily just packed it in. I believe our girls learned a lesson- just not a hard lesson.”
