Eleven minutes, twenty-six seconds, is not a long period of time in
the grand scheme of life.
But in game time on a basketball court, it’s an eternity.
With the score 2-2 with 4:34 to play in first quarter, the Beaver
Lady Dusters defense smothered the Lady Cardinals of Turpin and did
not allow another point in the half on their way to a 42-21 win.
The Lady Dusters defense caused Turpin fits from the start. Beaver
quickly scored off the opening tip and set up their full-court press.
Turpin turned the ball over on 10 of their first 11 possessions, but
Beaver could not capitalize because of turnovers of their own.
Kamee Gabel and MaRiah Oyler helped get the Lady Dusters going with
each converting 3-point plays after Turpin turnovers against the press.
The Lady Cardinals did have chances at the free throw line to help
get them back on track, but were unable to convert. Beaver held
Turpin without a point in the second period and headed to halftime
wth a commanding 21-2 lead.
“To hold them to two points in the first half is amazing,” Beaver
coach Casey Jones said. “We pride ourselves on playing good defense.
We spend about 70 percent of our practice time on defense.”
The Lady Cardinals were able to be more competitive in the second
half, where the Lady Dusters outscored them only 21-19.
“We did a much better job against their press in the second half,”
Lady Cardinals’ coach Gary Tuell said. “Against a good team like
Beaver, you have to have several players step up, and offensively,
that did not happen. Defensively I thought we did a good job, but we
need to rebound better and play with more intensity.”
Anna McDonald led Beaver in scoring with 12, and MaRiah Oyler added 10.
Maegan Rider led the Cardinals with 7.
Beaver has now won 17 games in a row, and stands at 17-1 on the
season, and will play at Hooker Tuesday. They are currently ranked
8th in Class A. Turpin is 8-7, and will host Tyrone Tuesday.
