Lady Bronchos rally to victory

BRAY — Sometimes, it’s better to be lucky than good.

Despite shooting 13-for-33 from the free throw line, and trailing for the majority of the first half, Central High’s Lady Bronchos were able to come away with a 41-34 victory over the Bray-Doyle Lady Donkeys Tuesday night, spoiling the home debut of new B-D head coach Frank Moser.

The win also gave the Lady Bronchos their fourth straight victory over the Lady Donkeys, dating back to last season.

“We just weren’t patient,” Central High coach Chad Weldon said about his team’s first half. “One shot offense is what we were running. But our seniors settled down and helped bring us back to win. I know we missed 20 free throws and that’s something we need to work on. We’re going to take it one game at a time, it’s nice being 2-0 but we have a lot of work to do.”

B-D had every reason to be confident coming out for the second half.

With a seven point lead, and the Lady Bronchos struggling from the field, it looked like the Lady Donkeys might finally get one over CHHS.

However, the ladies in blue and gold had other ideas.

After tying the game at 21-21 with just over 5 minutes left in the third, CHHS took its first lead of the second half at the 1:35 mark at 26-25.

From that moment on, B-D struggled to find the rhythm which had helped build an 11-point lead with just under three minutes left in the second quarter.

“I thought foul trouble and cold shooting were the things that hindered us the most tonight,” Moser said. “We had to make adjustments and it’s hard to stay consistent when you have to do that. Against their man defense we were having good shots, but when they went to a zone, our outside shooting struggled.”

Both teams had trouble shooting from behind the arc on the evening, as the Lady Bronchos (2-0) went 1-for-9 while the Lady Donkeys were 2-for-10.

Bray-Doyle had the better of the fortunes at the free throw line, where it went 8-for-15, including 8-for-12 in the first half.

Lady Broncho senior Lora-Lynn Loomis led all scorers with 20 points on the evening, with fellow seniors Caitlyn White, and Lacie Phillips each scoring six points. Sophomore Faith Harris scored five, with Aleia Daniels putting in four.

“Caitlyn really pumped us up at half-time,” Loomis said. “We didn’t want to lose to them (B-D) and we made sure we didn’t. I knew before this season started I was going to have to step up because of the players we lost. It feels great being 2-0 before Thanksgiving and I hope we keep it up.”

Bray-Doyle (0-1) was paced by junior Ashlee Kelly with 17 points followed by Morgan Kovar with seven points.

B-D will be back in action Monday night Nov. 26 against Empire on the road, while the Lady Bronchos will return to Broncho Gymnasium Tuesday night Nov. 27 for a meeting against Sterling.
