Defense smothers Spartans

November 30, 2012
St. Lukes Episcopal School



The first rankings of the year had the Lady Wildcats ranked #4 in AHSAA 1A for the state of Alabama.  On Thursday night they lived up to that ranking:

Girls Basketball: St. Luke's 46, Saraland 13

, November 29, 2012 10:29 p.m.

MOBILE, Alabama -- Brooke Pate and Jewel Hill each had a  game-high 10  points while Logan Smith added nine as Class 1A No. 4  ranked St. Luke's  routed visiting Saraland 46-13 here Thursday evening.

With the win, the  Wildcats improve to 6-1 on the season  and will play Saturday at 12:30 p.m. against East Central  (Miss.) in the  Vancleave Classic tournament. Meanwhile, Saraland falls  to 1-3 and will  play next on December 4 when it hosts UMS-Wright at 6  p.m.

Despite being a Class 1A school, St. Luke's has made some noise   already this season. The Wildcats have beaten 6A Alma Bryant twice;   knocked off 6A Baker; beat 5A Saraland now; upended 3A Cottage Hill   Christian and also defeated 2A Mobile Christian.  St. Luke's  only loss so far this year came at the hands of undefeated  UMS-Wright, a  35-22 defeat.
 
The Wildcats had few problems against Saraland
 
"We have really been working hard on our defense," said St.   Luke's coach Christine Zoghby of her team. "We've been working on   holding teams to low numbers as far as scoring and I think our defense   has been doing real well. That team chemistry is starting  to pick up  too."
 
St. Luke's is still struggling somewhat at the free throw line   however, nailing only 4-of-12 free throws against Saraland. "We're   working on free throws every day in practice," said Zoghby. "That is   definitely something we need to keep working on though."
 
Zoghby said her team is coming together.
 
"At the moment, I'm proud of the girls as far as where we are,"   she said. "We're excited about how we're playing and we're taking the   right steps."
 
The game was never close as St. Luke's opened up an 11-0 lead   with 2:25 left in the opening quarter and led 11-3 after the first   period. By halftime, that lead had jumped to 33-5 and the Wildcats were   up 44-13 heading into the final quarter.
