Speedway races past Cascade

SPEEDWAY — The town of Speedway is synonymous with high performance engines. Unfortunately for the visiting Cascade girls’ basketball team, the Speedway girls were running on all cylinders Saturday, taking a 72-55 victory.

Speedway started fast, scoring 24 points in the opening quarter behind senior guard Allison Nash, who scored half of those points. Meanwhile, the Sparkplugs also dominated the glass and got the better end of turnovers, leaving little doubt on which was he better team.

Cascade coach Don Helmick made no excuses.

“We got outhustled and outperformed in every phase of the game,” Helmick said.

Cascade found it difficult to keep up with Speedway’s frenetic pace. Though Cascade posted 17 points in the first period, the Cadets were down seven points, and Speedway’s lead only grew as the game progressed.

Still, Cascade could be held accountable for aiding Speedway in pulling away, as the Cadets’ 18 turnovers were a factor.

With Nash on a heated scoring pace with 19 first half points on the way to a game-high 35 points, her work was aided by dominance on the glass where Speedway prevailed 55-34. Ristoria Perry (13 rebounds), Nash (12), and Madison McGaughey (9) matched the Cascade team total. At least eight offensive rebounds were turned into points for the Sparkplugs.

“We got Nash to do what we wanted her to do,” Helmick said. “We did not want her to beat us from outside, and we got her to penetrate. But, we did not put bodies on people and did not block out.”

Cascade had one bright spot in Sydney Stein, whose hard work in the paint provided 31 points and 10 rebounds. But, those numbers were tougher to record with the Speedway defense focused on Stein inside and perimeter shots missing the mark for the Cadets.

“Inside, they triple teamed Sydney,” Helmick said. “She got to the line, but they were holding her jersey some. Sydney got beat up a little bit more than the refs saw, but we did not knock shots down.”
