Ferris varsity girls basketball shows better teamwork against Crandall; Gains win at Venus
The Ellis County Press
FERRIS - There is no doubt the Ferris Varsity Girls’ Basketball team has showed an incredible amount of heart and determination all season long.
Yet for all that, they have consistently struggled with being consistent. Game after game has proven their trouble spots of communication and passing, among others.
Although they still struggled with getting rebounds, the girls that faced Crandall for the second time definitely showed improvement in the critical areas of shooting and passing due to an overall better level of team communication.
Crandall jumped out to a 25-6 lead after the first period of play and continued to add to that score taking a 37-10 lead into half-time.
The Lady Yellow Jackets kept fighting their way through the overly physical Lady Pirates and were successful in keeping Crandall to only 16 points in the third period while scoring a game high 12 points.
Much of the Lady Jackets’ improved scoring came from good shot set-ups and more accurate passing to get the ball down the court. Ferris’ high scorers were Marissa Koetting with 12 points, Summer Mcguire with six points, and La Teisha Berry with six points.
Crandall would go on to take the win 71-26 after beating the Lady Jackets 79-20 the last time around.
The Lady Yellow Jackets then traveled to Venus Friday to take on the Lady Bulldogs.
The last time to two teams met, the Lady Yellow Jackets played a close game, but lost in the last few minutes 32-27.
This time Ferris was determined to win. At half-time the Lady Yellow Jackets had a slight lead of 19-16.
They scored 13 points in the third period to take a 32-25 lead going into the last period of play.
The Lady Yellow Jackets scored a game high 19 points to seal the 51-37 win.
High scorers for the game were Marissa Koetting with 17, Lateisha Berry with 17, Vicki Mcguire with nine, Aleyna Serna with four and Jordan Ogle and Summer Mcguire with two points each.
