Lafayette Jeff girls rally to top Central Catholic in OT

January 30, 2013
Lafayette Jefferson High School



Seventy-three days it took Carlie Hinkel to feel the way she did Tuesday night.

Victory made those days, which turned into weeks and eventually months, dissipate in an instant.

The Lafayette Jeff junior helped lead the Bronchos to an unlikely comeback victory against Central Catholic, 47-43 in overtime at McHale Gymnasium.

“We are sick of losing,” said Hinkel, whose 14 points and 12 rebounds were contributory to Jeff ending a 16-game losing streak that dates back to Nov. 17. “We wanted someone else to feel like we feel every game.”

The Bronchos’ Nov. 17 win also was against CC, 48-42, in the J&C Hoops Classic.

After a lackluster performance in the first half, assistant coach Kyle Spray and head coach Geoff Salmon expressed their disappointment.

The Bronchos, who saw CC go on a 15-0 run to end the first half and take a 30-14 halftime lead, limited the Knights to one point in the third quarter and 13 in the final 20 minutes.

“They had to dig down deep inside,” Salmon said. “You can scream and yell as a coach all you want, but if the kids don’t have the desire to want to go out and get something accomplished, it is not going to happen.”

On Tuesday night, the Bronchos made it happen.

Kara Homeier scored five points, both in key situations. Homeier’s 3-pointer closed the gap to 30-25 with 1:42 to go in the third quarter and she scored again in the third quarter to steal momentum from CC after an Angela Tharp jumper pushed the Knights ahead by eight.

Trailing 36-30, Lafayette Jeff post players Hinkel and Alessandria Aikerson-Russell each scored two buckets, three of the four baskets coming on offensive putbacks. Hinkel lobbed to Aikerson-Russell in the post, who scored to put Jeff ahead 38-36 with 1:11 to go.

Emily Denhart scored off a lob pass exactly one minute later, tying the score at 39, and Aikerson-Russell missed a layup to end regulation.

Aikerson-Russell, who had eight points, was vindicated by the overtime period, where she contributed four of her 11 rebounds.

“I know I missed that last shot, and I don’t think anybody wanted to go out like that, especially since we won against CC in J&C Hoops,” Aikerson-Russell said. “Everyone wanted to come back in our last game of the (regular) season and show we’re still here.”

Aliyia Kind sealed the game in overtime with free throws and scored 13 points for the Bronchos (3-18). Martina McQuay provided nine rebounds off the bench and Kaylee Simms scored five points.

CC, which got 18 points from freshman point guard Cameron Onken, made just 12 of 26 free throws. The Knights missed their first five of the overtime period before Onken sank a pair with 19.6 seconds remaining to get CC within 44-43.

Tharp, who scored 11 points off the bench, had a 3-pointer go just off the mark that would have tied the game at 46 with eight seconds remaining in overtime.

“We came out and were really confident,” Onken said. “They got on a roll, scored a couple baskets and had a couple good defensive plays. Then they just started gaining on us. Next thing I know, I look up and it’s really close.

“Luckily we got to overtime, but we didn’t play our best then, either.”
