Sterling too much for B-D

RUSH SPRINGS — In a contest which matched last year’s finalists of the Black Diamond Tournament against one another, the rematch went the same way the first game did.

No. 9 Sterling hit its first three point shots of the contest, leaving Bray-Doyle with a huge deficit to crawl out of. In the end it was the Lady Tigers prevailing 69-44, advancing to the semi-finals of the 30th annual Black Diamond Tournament.

“Sterling is a very talented team and we knew they were coming into this game,” B-D coach Frank Moser said. “I was proud of the way we never gave up though and played hard. We’ve got some pretty good young talent and they played well tonight. These girls have a lot of pride and really wanted to win this game. Coach (Rick) Wilson is a class act and deserves a lot of credit for how well his girls played tonight.”

If it wasn’t for a rough first half, the Lady Donkeys might have made things interesting for the Lady Tigers.

After being behind 63-26 at the end of the third quarter, B-D managed to claw its way back with a solid 18-point fourth quarter. At the same time, SHS was held to just six points.

But, the real damage had been done long before then.

Sterling used a strong defensive press and hot shooting from the field to storm out to a 23-6 lead after the first quarter, which was increased to 41-14 going into the halftime break.

In the third, Bray-Doyle started to find its groove on the offensive end as the Lady Donkeys scored 12 points in the quarter, making it 63-26 going into the fourth.

It didn’t help matters that the Lady Tigers went 8-for-12 from behind the arc, combined with a solid 9-for-11 from the free throw line.

B-D matched the free throw shooting, going 13-of-18 after starting out 5-for-5 on the night. However, the Lady Donkeys finished just 1-of-7 from three point range in the contest.

Leading the scoring for the Lady Donkeys (3-9) was Morgan Kovar who totaled 12 points on the night. Taylor Nichols added 10 points to go with two steals. Ashlee Kelly Put in nine points with nine rebounds, while Erica Hatfield also scored nine points to go with four rebounds.

Sterling (14-2) was led by Madison Bradshaw with 18 points and three steals. Madeline Jacobi scored 11 points on the night.

B-D will face the loser of the Central High/Dibble game on Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. from Lloyd Conover Gymnasium in Rush Springs.

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.
