Varsity Lady Clovers Hold On To Defeat OVHS Lady Patriots, 51-46
Hamm, a junior, finished with 14 points and freshman Walker 11, while junior Angela Pieper added seven, senior Bailey Stevens nine, junior Payton Dorsett six and senior Laura Worthington four.
“It was great to see a couple more shots fall tonight,” Cloverdale head coach Matthew Langdon said after the game. “We shot really well from the three point line. I thought we did much better rebounding tonight against a big team with Angela Pieper giving us a big lift with 12 boards. We had a lot of girls step up and increase their contribution. It’s ideal to have balance scoring throughout and we are getting closer to that each game.”
OV’s Zaine Bucy and Gracie Query each finished with a game-high 15 points, followed by Kara Schafer with nine, Payton Cattorini five, and Alyssa Day two.
“We hit one three and they hit seven, so that obviously made a difference, but at the free-throw line, I have to give Cloverdale a lot of credit, they were 14-for-18,” Owen Valley’s coach Todd York said. “When they had to hit their free throws, they hit them and we were 11-for- 21. That is unacceptable for us. We’ve talked about that. We missed a lot of easy shots. Those are two things that are very fixable.
“That being said,” coach York continued, “We got down 47-27 early in the fourth quarter and then went on a 19-4 run. I’m really proud of the girls. A young team like that usually would just quit and we didn’t. To rally back like that and cut it to two points with under a minute to go says a lot about the team. They are a great group to coach. I think we are just going to keep getting better. We’ve improved a lot even over the last week. What we want to do is just get better every game.”
“The girls were excited about the win, but our focus must quickly turn to South Putnam and county this weekend,” coach Langdon added. “They are a well coached team and play very hard. Our girls need to be ready to match their aggressive play.”
