Bethesda edges University

BROWNSBURG — The Bethesda Christian Patriots girls’ basketball team bounced back from a sluggish start to beat the visiting University Trailblazers for the first time in school history, 31-27, on Tuesday night behind freshman Jenna Warrick’s 11 points and five rebounds.

Bethesda’s rebounding and defense had traditionally been spotty when they had previously squared off with the Trailblazers, but even this early in the season, there were major implications for the Patriots as they faced a potential sectional foe.

“This was a game we knew we would have to come in and rebound well and be strong on defense and for most of the game we did that,” Bethesda coach Shane Lightfoot said. “We felt like this was a game we really had to have because it’s a sectional opponent and we thought we felt like we did the things we’ve been known to do well. This was a big win for us.”

Bethesda (3-2) came out of halftime and jumped out to a six-point lead that ultimately widened the gap too far for University to recover. Bethesda senior Emily Hayden added five rebounds which allowed for the extra offensive opportunities and the Patriots capitalized. Bethesda junior Lydia Trapp added 11 points, seven of which came in the second half giving way to the Patriots’ momentum.

“We have both ends of the spectrum with those two (Trapp and Warrick) with leadership and energy and I think that’s something I expect from all of our girls,” Lightfoot said. “I was really proud of all of our girls but those two particularly, we need them to play that way in order to be successful.”

Bethesda led for most of the second half by a six-point margin.

With under a minute left, University hit a two and had a chance to add one at the line but missed. Bethesda added additional space with two free throws from Warrick but the Trailblazers hit a three with 14 seconds, cutting the Patriots’ lead to three. On the ensuing inbound pass, University made a tactical error and let nine seconds run off the clock before finally fouling. Trapp capitalized by hitting one of two free throws to make it a two possession game with less than three seconds left.
