Warriors, Bruins split sectional openers



After a good start, the Bruins fell behind quickly with 26 turnovers and lost 74-50.

“I really thought it was going to be a pretty even game to be honest,” Tri-West coach Brad Acton said. “I think it surprised everybody that we ended up like we did.”

Tri-West (16-6) led 17-15 after the first quarter but Indian Creek’s half-court trap rattled the Bruins in the second quarter. Tri-West registered nine turnovers and shot 3 of 15 from the field in the second.

The Braves (17-5) shot 12 of 18 in the second quarter and took a 41-25 lead into halftime. Tri-West’s inability to get the ball past half court clearly hurt them and allowed for easy Indian Creek baskets.

“They were basically outplaying us and we didn’t have an answer,” Acton said. “We didn’t attack like we wanted. Give credit to them and they are a solid team.”

It was more of the same in the third quarter as the Braves scored 16 unanswered points, the Bruins turned the ball over nine times again and the game was effectively put out of reach.

“It was tough to watch it when you’re sitting on the bench and you’re trying to do some things to correct, but it just wasn’t our night,” Acton said.

Sophomore Karen Jones led Tri-West with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Tri-West has won 68 games the past four seasons to go along with two sectional championships so Acton did not want this game to be the lasting image of his senior class.

“This senior group accomplished so much,” Acton said. “I don’t want to dwell on this game, even though it’s the final game but it’s not the way you wanted to end it. These seniors have had a heck of a career.”

Lauren DeSutter, Kari Sellers, Cary Brown, Dani Waldeck and Taylor Baggett make up the Bruins senior class. Acton knows that he will miss the girls moving forward.

“This group may be one of the best groups I’ve coached just with their work ethic and their ability to play hard every night,” Acton said. “It’s going to be hard to replace them.”
