Lady Knight 3-point barrage not enough - 1/23/12


Fri, Jan 20th, 2012
Posted in Sports

The Dover-Eyota girl's basketball squad has an M-O. They push the basketball. Led by speedy standout junior PG Sarah Pease, D-E gets up and down the court in the blink of an eye. With great depth, they also come in and out in droves. That formula had the Eagles sitting 8-1 in the 3-Rivers, tied for 1st place (10-3 overall) upon visiting 4-3, 8-5 Kingsland. The 1st half was highlighted by 15 Knight TO's and a 21-6 D-E spurt. Kingsland scored the last four, but still went to the break down 32-23. Four more points to begin the 2nd half trimmed the lead to 32-27. But a 13-2 run seemingly put D-E in command 47-31 (10+ minutes left). At that point, Kingsland went nutty from deep. They nailed seven trifectas in a 7+ minute span (on nine attempts). The last by Lindsay Tart erased the remainder of D-E's lead, capped a 13-0 run, and put the Knights ahead 62-60 at the 3-minute mark (their first lead since 13-11). Enter Ms. Pease. With the scored tied at 62, she pulled up and drilled a gutsy top of the key three with 1:41 to go. Moments later, she nailed a pair of FT's to expand D-E's lead to 67-62 with 40 ticks left. Another Tart triple with 21 seconds cut the lead to two. When Pease missed the back-end of a 1-and-1, Kingsland had a chance for the tie. But in the final 13 seconds, all they got off was a two-point attempt. The Eagles prevailed 68-65, withstanding the frenetic Knight comeback. Pease led all scorers with 20. NiKayla Ratz chipped in 13 for the Eagles who had ten girls score. For Kingsland, Cheyenne Losey had 13 and 11 (3rd 2B-2B of season). MaKayla Pruter had season highs in points (13) and assists (9) dueling Pease at the point. Tart had 12 all from deep and all in the last 7+ minutes. Both teams shot well from range; Kingsland 10-19, D-E 6-11.

R-P a rollin'

The R-P boys started the season 1-2. Exactly a month later, the Trojans are in the enviable position of still being stuck on two losses. Houston (9-2 overall) felt the wrath. They became the 9th straight victim. Trent Vix continued his after New Year's onslaught (34 versus Southland, 25 versus FC). The crafty guard scored 23 points in the 1st half, going 6-8 from downtown (he finished with 25 & 7 dimes). The Trojans were an offensive juggernaut in the first session, scoring a season best 52 points, building a 23-point lead. They deflated the 'Canes. Nick Thompson had 16 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. Nate Kingsley scored 15. Jorli Hauge was Mr. Glue Guy (7 points, 7 rebounds, 5 a .....

What Mabel-Canton senior center Steve Smith does on the court isn't necessarily flashy. There are no three-pointers, pull-up jump shots, or dipsy-do drives to the lane. He isn't the new age big-man, or more likely to gravitate to the perimeter versu .....

Volleyball
