Mike Ritter Blog – GBB – Eureka / Lafayette

RSN EvL GBB ritterClick here to view the game – The Lafayette Lady Lancers 2-14 (1-2) girls basketball team  had  upset on their minds entering Friday night’s Suburban West Conference match-up.  They took on the area’s second ranked team in the large schools poll, the Eureka Lady Wildcats. The short manned Lady Lancers did all they could before falling short in the end, 64-50. “We seem to get everyone’s best game when we step out on the court,” Eureka coach James Alsup said.  “It’s what a rivalry game should be.’’  Lafayette came out balanced on offense shooting well from the outside and scoring inside. They also created havoc on defense and led 16-8 after the first quarter. Eureka responded in the second quarter with a 21-13 run and the two teams went into the half tied at 29. Lafayette, who was paced by sophomore guard Jenny Kohl’s 15 points [Custom Shirt Graphics Standout Player of the Game] were still right there after three quarters of play trailing just by one point, 43-42. But the fourth quarter was a different story as the experienced Lady Wildcats went to their two top seniors, center Lindsey McCoy [Custom Shirt Graphics Standout Player of the Game] and guard Tori Allen, who took over the game. Both McCoy and Allen scored a game high 22 points, many of them coming in the fourth quarter to seal the deal and help Eureka improve to 16-2 overall and 4-0 in conference play. McCoy and Allen’s performance were especially needed with Eureka playing without their leading scorer Kelsey Tepen who was held out of the game for an undisclosed reason. Click here to view the game
