Stars outshine Bruins

LIZTON — Both the boys and girls Tri-West basketball teams fell last night at home against Sagamore Conference rival Western Boone in a doubleheader.

The Bruins boys’ and girls’ teams each had its respective chances at victory against the Stars but faltered late.

Girls

After averaging nearly 65 points per game in the first five games, the Tri-West girls could not get things going offensively and fell 47-43 to the Stars.

Senior leading scorer Lauren DeSutter, who was averaging 23 points per game entering last night’s contest, was held to only seven points and the team shot 32 percent as a whole.

“Our energy and our effort were good tonight. It just came down to basically we didn’t shoot the ball well,” Tri-West coach Brad Acton said. “Part of that was we had a lot of open shots but we just didn’t hit them. At the same time we got out of rhythm trying to get Lauren the ball.”

The Stars shadowed DeSutter the entire evening and tried to prevent her from getting the ball on almost every possession.

Junior Marisa Meyer stepped up in the first half by scoring 11 points, including three 3-pointers, as the Bruins trailed 29-24 at the break.

“Tonight, it was good to see her come out early because they were trying to shut down Lauren and Katrina (Headlee),” Acton said.

Headlee, a sophomore, got going in the third quarter even when the team was faltering.

She scored all seven of Tri-West’s third quarter points in a span of less than two minutes when she converted two long jumpers and a 3-pointer. The Stars were not able to create much separation though as they shot 2 of 12 in the quarter.

“I can’t fault our defense at all,” Acton said. “There were times I thought we were in position for the block out and we got our hands on the ball and they kind of came up with it.”
