R-2 LADY WILDCATS BASKETBALL TEAM LOSES SEASON OPENER
The Montgomery County R-2 Lady Wildcats basketball team opened the 2012-13 season last Tuesday, November 20, by hosting the Hermann Lady Bearcats. Having graduated four starting players from last year’s team, the Lady Wildcats are fairly inexperienced and that inexperience showed against Hermann as they lost 60-20.
R-2 got off to a quick start, causing 3 turnovers by Hermann leading to 4 points in the first 2-3 minutes of the game. However, from that point on it was all Hermann, as the Lady Bearcats led 23-4 at the first quarter. Hermann outscored R-2 10-5 in the second quarter, to lead 33-9 at halftime.
Hermann’s offense got going again in the third quarter, as the Lady Bearcats outscored R-2 19-7 to lead 52-16 at the end of the quarter. With a running clock in the fourth quarter neither team scored many points, but Hermann outscored R-2 8-4 in the quarter to win 60-20.
Emily O’Keefe led the Lady Wildcats in scoring with 8 points (4 field goals/FGs). She was followed in the scoring by Mackenzie Yager with 5 points (1 FG, 1 3-pointer), Elinor Arens with 3 points (1 FG, 1 FT), and Makayla Yager and Shelby Roark with 2 points each (1 FG each). Danielle Schmidt, Hope Eoff, Jessica Dryden, Lauren McGarvey, Delaney Benney, Anna Ash, and Sammie Korte also played in the game, but did not score.
The Lady Wildcats will play 3 games this week in the Montgomery County Invitational Tournament. They played their first game on Monday, November 26, against Bowling Green. On Wednesday, November 28, they will play against either Clopton or Fulton. If they won on Monday, they will play at 6:00. If they lost on Monday, they will play at 4:30. They will also play on Friday, November 30, but their opponent and the game time will not be determined until after Wednesday’s game.
Next week the Lady Wildcats will play 2 non-conference games. On Monday, December 3, they will play at Orchard Farm (St. Charles County). The Jr. Varsity game will start at 5:30, followed by the Varsity game around 7:00. On Thursday, December 6, both teams will host Warrenton at the R-2 High School Gym. The JV game will start at 6:00, and the Varsity game will start around 7:30.
The Lady Wildcat players and coaches encourage you to attend their games, to support them and cheer them to victory.
