HOOP WRAP: Lady Bobcats topple LC-M

LITTLE CYPRESS — Using a 9-0 spurt in the second quarter, the Orangefield Lady Bobcats held the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Lady Bears at bay as they went on to post a 52-41 victory at The Bear Cave in non-district action Tuesday night.

Orangefield point guard Kacey LeBlanc was a key factor in Orangefield’s second period run when she scored seven of her game-high 20 points.

Orangefield (2-3) led 28-20 at intermission and led by as much as 13 at 40-27 early in the fourth but the Lady Bears (5-5) kept battling back, keeping the Lady Bobcats’ lead under double digits until Lady Bobcat Megan Button drained a pair of free throws with less than a second to make it a 11-point win.

Button finished with 11 points and five rebounds.

Moorage Moss had seven points and nine boards for the Lady Bobcats. Kaki Lumps filtered in seven points while LeBlanc also found time to snare seven boards.

Feisty guard Casey Websites led the Lady Bears with eight points.

Lady Bear posts Kayleigh Roy and Tara Thompson were in foul trouble early on but LC-M still won the battle of the boards, outrebounding Orangefield 34-28.

Tori Thompson led LC-M with a game-high 10 rebounds. Roy pulled down nine boards while Tara Thompson added six.

Post Sheridan Rogers contributed seven points. Roy had six points and Tori Thompson had five. Josie Nimitz contributed five points and played well on the defensive end.

Orangefield led 15-13 at the end of the first period as the Lady Bobcats connected on four three-pointers including two by Lummus. Rogers kept the Lady Bears close, scoring three big buckets inside in the first half.

The Lady Bobcats stretched their 28-20 halftime edge to 37-25 entering the fourth period.

The Lady Bears clawed their way back, outscoring Orangefield 15-11 to pull to within 48-40 with 2:19 left.

The Lady Bears finished with 27 turnovers while the Lady Bobcats had 22.

Both teams struggled from the free-throw line. The Lady Bears connected on 15-of-28 while the Lady Bobcats were just 12-of-26.

The Lady Bobcats will open up District 21-3A play next Tuesday on the road at Buna while the Lady Bears start 20-4A play the same night at Beaumont Central.

In other action Tuesday night, Bridge City fell to Beaumont Central 48-20.
