Lady Yellowjacket Megan McVay (center) defends during Kemp's 45-34 win over the visiting
Lady Bulldogs Monday.
In Mondays matchup of former district foes,
both teams suffered from icy shooting, particularly at the free throw line Kemp
finished 2-of-18 for the game.
Kemp senior standout Michelle Ritterbach was in uniform, but sat out the game with an
The Lady Jackets opened a 14-8 lead in the first quarter, but the Lady Bulldogs were
able to cut the margin to just four points at halftime, 21-17, with relentless rebounding,
particularly on the offensive end.
Both teams scored eight points in the third quarter, but the Lady Jackets pulled
away late, outscoring Eustace 16-9 in the fourth quarter to forge the final 11-point
We played well and did a good job of running our press break against their
press, Eustace coach DaLinda Cassell noted later. We moved the ball well,
which allowed us some easy baskets. We also did a good job running our offense and being
Brianna Powell took the burden of Michelles absence, making some very
effective cuts to the basket with the ball, but was unable to convert of any of her free
throws, Kemp coach Kent Smith said afterward.
Powell went 0-for-13 at the line, which is very uncharacteristic of her, since she,
along with Michelle, is one of my best free throw shooters, going to the line more than
anyone else on the team, Smith added.
We need to work on crashing the boards and allowing our opponent one shot,
Cassell said. We also missed some easy shots underneath at the beginning of the
game, which I feel was adrenaline.
We have to be able to control that extra energy and excitement, and finish
underneath when we are wide open, she added. We are very excited with our
teams improvement, and that we are playing as a team.
Overall, it was a disappointing performance, considering Michelles absence
the team should learn to play better in those cases, Smith said. But,
Michelle tends to set the tempo for the team, as she has done the past two years. Without
her, we played at a slower pace, offensively and in the press.
Senior Allie Cass led the Lady Bulldogs with 10 points, with Kacie Richards adding eight
points, Shelby Marcom seven, Vanessa Lopez four, Megan Renteria three and Chelsea Oldham
Despite her struggles at the charity stripe, Powell finished with a game-high 15 points,
five rebounds and four assists. Bree Weisinger added 10 points, Kandace Rose finished with
eight points and nine rebounds, and Shannon Shipp had four points and 13 rebounds.
