Trojans Tested, Down M-C, Remain Undefeated

A pair of teams at or near the top of their conferences squared off in Mabel. The Cougars (5-2 in the SEC, 6-5 overall) hosted the undefeated R-P Trojans (6-0 in the 3-Rivers, 9-0 overall). In the early going, the contest was defined by one thing; fouls. The game had very little first half flow as each squad paraded to the free throw line. The situation favored M-C in as much as; it took R-P out of its harassing full-court defense; it took the Trojan’s lead guard, Kendra Crawford, out of the game (foul trouble). R-P started the game up 13-2 and 28-16 with their aggressive defense. But when the fouls piled up they had to pull back. M-C cut the double digit lead to four three times before going to the half down 38-32. At that point, the teams had combined to shoot 42 FT’s (R-P 8-24, M-C 11-18). In the second half, M-C began with a 7-0 run, one capped by a Lydia Geving three. It gave the Cougars their first lead (39-38) since 2-0. R-P, tested, regrouped quickly. They ran their half-court sets. They hit the offensive glass big time. They went on an 8-0 run to again assume control. From there, the floodgates slowly opened. R-P scored on 12 of 17 possessions at one point. They broke M-C’s late desperation full-court pressure with ease. With under four to go, the lead had ballooned to 20 (65-45). R-P prevailed 74-55. Frosh forward Brianna Koop led the way (19 pts, 15 rebs, 7 stls), Sierra McNamer was efficient (7-11 FG’s, 16 pts), Hope Morrison hit her first four three’s, and five for the game (15 pts), and Crawford, after a foul-shortened first half (4 pts, 2 assists), finished up nicely (15 pts, 9 assists). For M-C, Carly McCabe (15 pts, 5 rebs, 4 stls), Geving (13 pts, 10 rebs, 4 assists), Coranda Vickerman (10 pts), and Sara Lind (9 pts, 9 rebs) were their own solid foursome. The Trojans snared 23 offensive rebounds. They had a whopping 26 second-chance-points. The teams combined for 51 turnovers (M-C 28, R-P 23). R-P was anemic at the free throw line (11-34) while M-C (18-28) was much better. R-P stays perfect atop the 3-Rivers South (6-0, 10-0). M-C, in second the SEC East, falls to 6-6 overall.
