Defense sets tone in OA victory

The Oldenburg Academy girls varsity basketball team won for the fifth time in the last six outings.

The Lady Twisters (7-7) defeated visiting Union County (5-11) by a score of 38-25.

Oldenburg never really allowed the Lady Patriots much momentum as the game progressed.

“Overall a solid effort,” OA head coach Dan Kerker commented. “Did not put up huge offensive numbers, but the kids played very well defensively.”

The Lady Twisters scored in double figures in only one of the four quarters. They held a 12-7 lead after the first.

Nine points in the second quarter and a total of 17 over the 16 minutes proved to be more than enough. Defensively, the Lady Twisters held UC to five points in the second quarter and only four in the third.

Oldenburg led 29-16 at the end of the third quarter.

Kirsten Ricke keeps improving as the season progresses. The OA guard led the team with 12 points, six steals and two assists.

Opposing teams are finding it very difficult to slow down Oldenburg’s Ella Lamping in the post. Lamping shared team-high honors with 12 points, but dominated the boards with 20 rebounds.

For the game, the Lady Twisters were 8-of-11 from the free throw line. The team’s efficiency pleases the coach.

“I am continually pleased with our free throw shooting in the last five or six ball games,” Kerker commented. “We talk a lot about how much the ability to hit the free throws can make in the out come of the game.”

The only loss in the past six games came a couple days earlier.

The South Dearborn Lady Knights defeated OA by a score of 45-33.

It was a disappointing game as our mental preparation just wasn’t there,” Kerker commented. “We shot poorly and did not execute. “The intensity and overall effort just wasn’t there.

“We struggled to get good shots and when we finally got them we just could not knock them down,” he added.

Lamping led the way with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Ricke added 10 points, four assists and three steals.
