stmarysRochester 43 St. Mary's 21

The Lady Bisons traveled to Rochester School for the Deaf yesterday for their second game of the season. Though they played well together, they couldn’t seem to keep up with the Lady Wildcats. It was an aggressive game on both sides which led to some foul trouble and injuries late in the game. The girls pulled through in the end but couldn’t make it a win.

Kioney Alvira-Juardo lead the team earning a double-double with 17 points and 16 rebounds. Kearah Kelly also made her first shot of the season adding two points to our total. After a nice break where we will try to regroup and work on some weak points we will be ready to take on Central Baptist again. (Contributed by Head Coach Wendy Chuba)

rhode-islandBlackstone Valley Prep 19 Rhode Island 13

Our Lady Roosters finally played our first game of the 2018 calendar year in a home game against Blackstone Valley Prep. After a lot of snow and missed practice days, this would be a good way for our team to get back into basketball form. Both teams started out the game rusty and the game remained scoreless until BVP finally scored the first points of the game more than six minutes into the game.

BVP would grab a 10-4 halftime lead but our Lady Roosters would not give up. They were able to come back and make the game exciting as the game score was at one point BVP leading 15-13, but our team ran out of gas and couldn't make any of our shots and BVP made two more baskets near the end of the game to win 19-13.

new-mexicoCimarron 49 New Mexico 12

Our first game of 2018 was a long trip to Cimarron. The day before, we had a very productive practice where players were very aggressive which made both coaches very eager for the game the next day. Unfortunately, we seemed to have left our competitive fire at home. We finished the first half scoring only two points to Cimarron’s 21. We finally came out with better passion with a nine-point quarter, but Cimarron continued their hot shooting performance with a 20-point quarter. We finished the game with a 12-point performance. As coaches, we were very disappointed in the team’s effort, however, this is a learning experience that the players will not want to repeat again. Our next game will be on January 17th with Vaughn on our home court. (Contributed by Head Coach Roderick Stickley)

We got off on the fast track leading 6-0 then some mental mistakes set in afterwards. However we managed to score points where we struggled in the past. After two weeks of no practice, the girls remained upbeat and played hard. Lourdine Jordanne continues to improve and become an inside threat. (Contributed by Head Coach Joy Moers)
