RC-L tops Panther girls and boys Monday

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

St. Mary's girls basketball team dropped an 80-11 decision to Rockwell City-Lytton Monday night in non-conference action at the Panther Pit.

RC-L led 17-2, 50-8 and 64-11 after the first three frames respectively.

The Panthers (0-15, 0-9 Northwest Conference) got a team-best five points from Jen Dimig.

Anyssa Lenhart, Cayla Egesdal and Jenny Welch all scored two points.

Lenhart and Dimig pulled down five and four rebounds, respectively.

They were playing without Rylee Paterson, who was out with an illness Monday but is probable for tonight's road game at Pomeroy-Palmer.

"We don't have a floor leader right now (with Paterson out of the lineup). With someone like Rockwell, with their athleticism and height, they were just way too quick for us," Panthers girls coach Herb Besaw said. "We're learning."

In the boys game, RC-L topped St. Mary's 52-31.

The Wildcats led just 20-15 at the break but used a 19-4 third-quarter edge to pull away for good.

St. Mary's (2-13, 0-9 Northwest Conference) got a team-high 10 points from Michael Ivey.

Connor Richardson added eight, Evan Smith four and Paul Yak three.

Jon Foell, Ryan Drey and Justin Cullen all chipped in two.

The Panthers shot just 11-for-56 for the game, including 1-for-17 sniping in the third quarter.

They were just 7-of-14 at the line, at which RC-L outscored them by seven.

"We struggled even getting shots tonight. We had a tough time getting our offense set up and getting the ball established in the post," St. Mary's assistant boys coach Nick Landgraf said. "We've taken steps backwards. Hopefully we can get back on track.

"We need to make adjustments on the fly and do what we're supposed to do offensively and defensively."
