Lady Cards tell Lady Rams - Not in Our House!
February 9, 2011East Wilkes High School
The Cardinals held Starmounts Kelli Bonner to 0 points in the 1st half. With the score tied most of the way the Cards finally pulled away with some help of some terrific outside shooting.
The third quarter proved close throughout, though East Wilkes never let Starmount get a lead. Bonner hit her first shot of the game in that quarter but still only had two points heading into the final period.
Becca Aplin's third three-pointer of the game pulled the Rams within 38-35 with 6:34 left in the contest. But East's Shina Parks answered on the other end, draining a three from the top of the key. Parks then made a steal and fed Erin Royal on the fast break. Royal missed her shot but hit two free throws for a 43-35 advantage.
Bonner drained a pair of her patented step-back three-pointers to make it a three-point game again, 44-41, with 1:48 to play.
East Wilkes used a variety of players to defend Bonner, like Parks, Shanisha White and others. The Cardinals forced 22 Starmount turnovers.
