Lady Comets double up

VELMA — Spoiler Alert: The sequel between the Velma-Alma Lady Comets and the Comanche Lady Indians turns out just like the first one.

Despite a cold shooting performance from both teams, which included just two points in the first quarter, it was the Lady Comets who found a way to score, eventually winning 38-17 in the first round of the Bullet Energy Comet Classic.

The scoreline was almost identical to the one V-A managed to win by last Tuesday night in Comanche, when the Lady Comets won 38-19.

“We better play pretty good defense, because 38 points isn’t that much,” V-A coach Jerry Garrett said about his team’s scoring output. “I was proud of the way we came out in the third quarter and hit two three’s like we did. But, we were ice cold the whole game and missing easy shots. We’ve got to do a better job of making those buckets.”

Neither V-A or Comanche had much luck shooting the ball in the first half, which saw a combined 16 points scored between the two teams along with a combined 0-for-13 shooting behind the arc. V-A led 11-5 going into halftime.  

But, the second half was a much different story, at least for the Lady Comets.

A 22-7 run gave V-A all the cushion it needed going into the fourth at 33-12, as Comanche suffered its second defeat to the Lady Comets this week.

“We played good enough defense in the first half to have a lead, but it’s the second straight game where we don’t have an identity offensively,” Comanche coach Sean Hushbeck said. “We’re just going to have to go back to the drawing board and figure out a way to score points.”

Leading the scoring for the Lady Comets was Kylee Saville with 11 points followed by Teddi Southerland with eight points. Cailin Wright scored six points in the contest.

Comanche (1-2) was led by Jenny Simpson and Alexis Duran who each scored four points.

 Tonight will see the Lady Comets take on Amber-Pocasset in the semifinal round at 6:30 p.m. while the Lady Indians will play in the consolation championship Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

Poll

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
