Lady Cardinals clip Lady Falcons, remain unbeaten
By CLAUDE VINSON
The Lady Cardinals’ head coach, Tana Miller, in her third season, has met the Lady Falcons only once before. But that was with a much different Cardinal team.
From the tip which went to Potts Camp, Ingomar might have gotten an inkling of just what was in store. The Lady Falcons were by no means shrinking violets and the scoring was two for two for most of the opening quarter. And Ingomar managed to end up out front with a 17-13 lead.
Potts Camp trailed for almost half of the second quarter before it took the lead. The score then see-sawed after that. The Lady Falcons scored on a breakaway steal in the last half-minute to go up by one. Potts Camp had three looks but none fell through. The Lady Cardinals were one point back at intermission at 34-33.
The third saw the Lady Cardinals getting their fast break working to the max – Zana Davis and Tenesha Woods taking the outlet passes from Kenyotta Jenkins and teaming up on the opposition. They finished the quarter with their biggest lead of the game at 44-38.
The Lady Cardinals took the brakes off completely in the fourth. They rarely let the Lady Falcons get to within 10 points except for the last few seconds. They went on to win their 10th consecutive at 66-58.
Jenkins and Lamonica Ingram hit the nylon for 23 and 13, respectively, apiece and Woods had 13.
Shelly Grisham led the Lady Falcons with 22. She had help from teammates Kayla Stevens and Kate Webb with 14 each.
The 9-2 Falcons of Ingomar flew just a little too high for the hosting Cardinals of Potts Camp last Friday night. The Falcons took over the game in the first two minutes and they never lost control after that. They didn’t allow a Cardinal point until they had reached 11. Their first quarter lead was 21-3.
Potts Camp was doing a good job of rebounding. Its shortcomings were in the shot accuracy department. The sparse buckets didn’t let them trim the Falcon lead by much in the second quarter. The main spot of contention was the paint space occupied constantly by Zach Carnell. He was feeding off of the misfires, sticking them back for consistent points. His efforts led to a 38-18 half-time score.
The third was a replica of the second. Ingomar still was not taking any prisoners. The visitors owned the score of 71-34 at quarter’s end.
They went on to outgun the Cardinals 85-54.
The Cardinals had no shooters in double figures, however, they had distributive scoring, most consistently from Jamarquis Foster with eight and Allen Robinson with seven.
For Ingomar, Carnell led the floor with 31. Matt Purvis pitched in 18 and Steven Foster had nine. Clay Kidd had 11, which included a trio of threes.
The Cardinals’ next games were set this past Monday at home versus Blue Mountain.
