WP girls rally past Eustace
Monitor Staff Reports
EUSTACE–In a game that just slipped away, the hosting Eustace Lady Bulldogs took an eight-point lead into the fourth quarter, but fell victim to a stirring Wills Point Lady Tiger rally, 38-33.
Now 0-4 in District 14-3A basketball play, the Lady Bulldogs were scheduled to wrap up the first round of district on the road against Van Friday.
Tuesday, Jan. 27, the Lady Bulldogs begin the second round of play at home against Mineola, opening with a 4:30 p.m. sub-varsity contest.
Next Friday, Jan. 30, Eustace travels to Canton for a matchup against the 15th-ranked Eaglettes.
At home before a good-sized crowd, the Lady Bulldogs used a big second quarter to forge an eight-point halftime lead.
Wills Point opened a narrow 11-8 lead in the first quarter, but the Lady Bulldogs outscored them 16-5 in the second quarter to take a 24-16 lead at intermission.
“I thought our girls played hard the entire game,” new Eustace coach DaLinda Cassell said later.
“Jessica (McConathy) was huge for us in the second quarter, hitting three 3-pointers,” she added. “In the third quarter, Wills Point’s (Heather) Harbaugh turned the game around for them.”
Both teams scored six points in the third quarter, but Wills Point’s pressure defense began forcing turnovers in the fourth quarter, enabling the Lady Tigers to outscore Eustace 16-3.
The Lady Tigers tied the game at 31-31, and 33-33.
Harbaugh converted a one-and-one opportunity from the charity stripe with 25 seconds left to give the Lady Tigers a 35-33 lead.
After a time-out, the Lady Bulldogs suffered another turnover, and Wills Point’s Precious Spencer hit 3-of-4 from the charity stripe (her only points) in the final 15.9 seconds to secure the victory.
“I thought defensively, we played well, and our goal is to hold our opponent under 40 points,” Cassell said. “We need to work on slowing down and executing our offense. That’s what hurt us in the fourth quarter.”
Jessica McConathy led the Lady Bulldogs with 14 points, with Allie Cass adding six points, Vanessa Lopez five points, Jenny McConathy four points and Nicole McNeel two points.
Cassell singled Lopez out for her play.
“Vanessa is very consistent for us,” she said. “She knows her role and plays her role every game, and that’s what every team needs and looks for.”
Harbaugh led the Lady Tigers with 12 points, as both Alicia Robinson and Darci Hamro added four points each.
