Lady Bears bruise way past Lady Indians

LITTLE CYPRESS — The “Cardiac” Little Cypress-Mauriceville Lady Bears had their fans filled with up-and-down excitement Friday night at The Bear Cave and the bottom line is that they improved to a perfect 4-0 in District 20-4A play with a 70-46 thumping of a rugged Port Neches-Groves Lady Indians team Friday night at The Bear Cave.

Lady Bear coach Ricky Ryan watched his squad jump out to a 27-2 lead in the first period only to see the Lady Indians scratch and claw their way back to just a 42-36 deficit midway through the third period.

The Lady Bears put away all doubts as they closed out the remaining 12 minutes with a 28-10 run.

It was a physical battle throughout, which only irritated an already rowdy PN-G crowd. However, the Lady Bears held their own against a much thicker and bruising Lady Indian team.

Cassidy Webster led a balanced LC-M attack with 18 points and the feisty guard also collected five rebounds.

The Lady Bears dominated the glass throughout the night, ending up with a 65-44 edge in that department.

The inside play of Malaysia Winbush and Tori Thompson was key as both finished with double-doubles.

Winbush filtered in 13 points and snared 10 rebounds while Thompson had 11 points and yanked down 11 boards. Emalee Carlton and Sheridan Rogers, both backup inside players, contributed well as they combined for 10 points and 18 rebounds.

Josie Nimitz tallied eight points while Grace Chen had six and Maddie Frey chimed in with nine rebounds.

The Lady Bears were all over PN-G in the first-quarter with full-court pressure, forcing the Lady Indians into 12 turnovers in the period while all of their shots were falling.

Winbush scored nine points in the 27-2 spurt while Thompson had six.

PN-G whittled away at the lead, trimming it to 32-17 at intermission as the Lady Bears just made one field goal in the second period and went just 3-of-11 from the free-throw line.

PN-G, led by post Taylor Breuer, went on a 19-10 tear to pull to within 42-36 with 3:21 left in the third period. Breuer finished with 16 points and 15 rebounds.

The Lady Bears answered though as Webster scored 10 of her points in the last 11 minutes of the game while Chen scored all six of her points in the fourth to help put the game on ice.

Kaley Warner scored seven points for PN-G. Brooke Ramirez had six points and seven boards while Anne Dawson had six points.

PN-G finished with 36 turnovers and made 10-of-20 free throws.

The Lady Bears coughed up the ball 24 times and struggled at the charity stripe, going just 17-of-36.

The Lady Bears were able to remain perfect in 20-4A play last Tuesday when they squeezed out a 42-41 road win at Livingston.

The Lady Bears survived to road scare despite shooting 23 percent from the field and 48 percent from the free-throw line.

Winbush led the Lady Bears with 10 points and yanked down a whopping 19 rebounds. Webster tallied nine points and collected 10 boards while Nimitz contributed eight points.

The Lady Bears will be back in 20-4A action Jan. 3 when they welcome the Nederland Lady Bulldogs to The Bear Cave.
