Danville claws back, tops Cascade

DANVILLE — Cascade looked to be coasting to a victory Friday night, but a ferocious run by the host Warriors gave them a 60-57 victory as the final buzzer sounded.

Danville had a pair of offensive heroes in the game. Sophomore Hannah Newby had a team-high 18 points and also corralled seven rebounds. Senior Allie Lake had 14 points, 12 of which came in the second half.

Danville coach Kaley May said was proud of her team for making a statement down the stretch.

“I thought we just showed a lot of heart,” May said. “We had a lot of adversity this game, but I was so proud of how my kids responded. It just took one good play for them to get behind each other and really prove something about this team and what they want this year and how serious they are about showing our contenders that we’re here to stay.”

A tightly contested opening half paved the way for an exciting contest.

Danville found itself in foul trouble early, as Cascade was in the double-bonus with over a minute to go in the half. Both teams committed frequent turnovers, and the Cadets outrebounded the Warriors 17-11 and went into the locker room with a 28-25 lead.

The Cadets looked to be pulling away in the beginning of the second half, as they stretched their lead to 10 with under five minutes to go in the third quarter. However, Danville went on an 11-3 run to close out the quarter and cut the deficit to one point.

Danville (2-1) continued to claw back in the fourth quarter, as four consecutive points at the beginning of the final period from Mahela Motter gave the Warriors a 44-43 lead. Danville extended its lead to seven midway through the quarter, but Roxanna Gaddis hit a 3-pointer for Cascade (1-2) to cut the lead to four.
