West Central Girls Can’t Overcome First Quarter Against St Thomas More

The West Central Trojans had plenty of open looks in the first quarter, but they couldn’t get shots to fall.  The Trojans made just one field goal in the first quarter, which put them in a hole the rest of the game.  The St Thomas More Cavaliers took advantage of that in a 47-35 win on Friday, January 13th.

The Cavaliers led 10-4 at the end of the first quarter and then extended the lead to 23-14 by halftime.  St Thomas More added a few more points to their lead in the second half.  They led 36-25 heading into the final quarter.

West Central shot 24% (10-42) from the field overall, 23% (6-26) from three-point area, and 56% (9-16) from the free-throw line.  The Cavaliers were 34% (14-41) shooting, 15% (2-13) from three-point area, but 77% (17-22) from the free-throw line.

Jazelle Jarding had 11 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and two rebounds.  Cambell Fischer added eight points, four rebounds, and two assists.  Tessa VanOverbeke had six points and three rebounds.  Molly Anderson finished with five points, and Alexa Borns had four points.
