Pressure defense gets to OA in opener

The Jac-Cen-Del Lady Eagles posted their third win of the season Friday night with a convincing 63-21 victory over visiting Oldenburg Academy.

It looked as if the Lady Eagles were two games into the basketball season and the Oldenburg Academy girls were making their season debut.

The Lady Eagles transitioned smoothly from made baskets into a full court press that gave coach Dan Kerker’s crew problems.

“Jac-Cen-Del’s press proved overwhelming,” Kerker commented. “We just could not execute any type of press break to counter.

“We knew it was coming, but we did not react to it as we have practiced. Our inability to react to their pressure proved to be the game changer,” he added.

Before they knew it, the Lady Twisters trailed 10-0.

The team’s first basket came on a field goal by Brooke Siefert at the 2:48 mark.

The JCD lead grew to 16-4 by the end of the first quarter.

The Lady Eagles continued to pressure the Lady Twisters into the second quarter and established a 17 point cushion. Sydney Keene scored back-to-back field goals and Jordan Day buried a 3-pointer to make it 25-8.

The first half ended with the Lady Eagles in front 30-10.

Coach Scott Smith’s squad put the game well out of reach with 11 unanswered points to open the second half. Field goals by Keene, Brooklyn Ronsheim and Jacqlyn Menchhofer made it 41-10 at the midway point.

A field goal by junior Anna Dickman at the 3:42 mark ended the OA scoring drought.

As the offensive struggles continued for the Lady Twisters, the lead continued to grow for Jac-Cen-Del. It reached 54-16 late in the third quarter.

Keene led the Lady Eagles in scoring with 17 points followed by Ronsheim with 14 and Hayley Bruns with 11.

The Lady Twisters got a team-high six points from Kirsten Ricke. Dickman, Siefert and Brianna Tindall each chipped in four points.
