New Photos Added There is a scene in the movie Hildago where the horses race across the desert. I was reminded of that movie tonight as the Lady 'Stangs of Bishop Brossart raced across the floor at Campbell County Middle School in a solid dismantling of the Lady Camels of Campbell County. The final score was Bishop Brossart 55, Campbell County 40. The win clinches the Number 1 seed for the 37th District Tournament in February which should pretty much give them a bye and then the winner of Silver Grove and Calvary while Scott will now battle for the 2 and 3 seeds to play each other. Brossart is finished with District seed games at 4-0.
Several of the Bluegrass Preps fans wanted to know this week who could stop Campbell County star Taylor Robinson. The answer was the Bishop Brossart defense which may be the best in the 10th Region. Coach Feldmann's attack defense held Robinson to just 3 field goals and seven points. The better question might have been who would stop the Lady 'Stang offense that saw four players score seven or more points and another duo with 5 and 4.
“It was a great overall effort as a team both offensively and defensively. We forced them into 20 turnovers and made 15 of 18 from the line. I'm very proud of them as always,” exclaimed Feldmann after the game.
Brossart jumped to an early 12-7 lead and then saw Campbell tie it and take a brief lead at 15-14. The game was actually only tied once and the lead exchanged hands just twice. Brossart began to pull away in the second quarter and built a 25-16 advantage by intermission. Their largest lead over the Lady camels was 46-28 midway thru the fourth quarter.
Brossart got their usual inside outside balance but tonight was a bit more inside oriented with Junior Sarah Futscher scoring 11 points and having 7 rebounds. Senior Maria Greis had one of her best games of the year with 10 points and 3of 4 from three point range. Brossart tossed in 8 three bombs to just two for the Lady Camels.
Junior Abby Stadmiller provided the long range firepower tossing in a game high 18 points including 7 of 8 from the charity stripe. Senior Rachel Hartig had 7 points, junior Madison Eisenman 5 and junior Cori Ziegler 4. Molly Kitchen led all Lady Camel scorers with 11 points.
Brossart dominated most categories execept rebounding where Campbell held a slight edge. The led in free throw points (15 to 6), Pts off Turnovers (16 to 8), 3 point points (24-6), second chance points (7 to 3) Steals (11-2) and Assists (12 to 6).
The Lady 'Stangs improve to 12-3 and win the Crosstown Shootout before a large crowd for the second straight year. Brossart won 54-43 last season. Campbell County falls to 5-10. Campbell's January 18 game with Scott will determine the 2 and 3 seed.
The junior varsity game tonight was all BBHS as well as the Lady 'Stangs won easily 38-28 led by 13 points from freshman Emily Schultz and 11 from freshman Abby King. 8th Grader Maddie Flaugher scored 9 as the freshmen fell to the Lady Camels.
