Big 3rd propels Bears past Cardinals

LITTLE CYPRESS —  

Utilizing a 26-2 spurt in the third quarter, the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bears erased a nine-point halftime deficit to turn back the Bridge City Cardinals 65-48 at The Bear Cave Tuesday afternoon.

After the Çardinals (1-2) dominated the boards and the tempo in the first half to lead 30-21 at intermission, the Bears (1-1) returned the favor in a big way in the third stanza.

The Bears forced the Cardinals into eight of their 20 turnovers in the period.

LC-M guard Taylor Peveto erupted for nine of his 13 points in the period and Jace Robertson had seven of his game-high 17 points in the quarter as the Bears snared a commanding 47-33 lead going into the fourth period.

The Bears went on to outscore the Cardinals 18-15 in the fourth.

The Cardinals, sparked by Tanner Cervenka and Bryce Sampere, went on a 17-9 run in the second period after leading 13-12 at the end of the first quarter.

Cervenka scored eight of his team-high 13 points in the first half while Sampere had all eight of his points in the second period.

The first 12 LC-M points of the game came on three-pointers with Robertson connecting on two of them.

Bear forward Christian Wendt, who finished with 12 points and eight rebounds, had seven of his points in the first half.

The Cardinals outrebounded the Bears 35-31 but the Bears held a 19-12 edge in that department in the second half.

Both squads received double-doubles from their centers.

Bridge City’s Alex Bingham had 11 points and hauled down a game-high 15 rebounds. LC-M’s Blake Fuss had 11 points and collected 11 boards.

Adrian Schubarth had nine points and eight boards for the Cardinals. Robertson and Peveto had four boards a piece for LC-M.

The Bears finished with eight three-pointers while the Cardinals had five.

LC-M, which had 14 turnovers, made just 7-of-20 free-throws while the Cardinals converted 7-of-10.

The Bears return to action next Tuesday when they visit Hamshire-Fannett while the Cardinals host East Chambers the same night.
