Mustangs tighten reins on Lady Hornets, 68-34

In playing their second district match, the Varsity Lady Hornets dropped to 1-1 Tuesday night as the Brookesmith Lady Mustangs tightened the reins in the fourth quarter and sealed the victory, 68-34. “We were able to stay with them for three quarters, but we broke down in the fourth quarter,” said Rochelle coach Mike Gardner. “We had a terrible night shooting. No one could get the ball in the basket. The half time score was 20-21, and we had already missed 10 free throws. “We did not make a field goal in the fourth quarter. We totally let our defense collapse. I really feel that if our shooting had been more ‘normal’ we could have made it very close. I have to give Brookesmith girls credit. They have a very fine team.” Scoring for Rochelle was Tanda Cook with 20, Adele Richardson 6, Danielle Adams and Jacki Williams, each with 3 and Sarah Crowder 2. Score by quarters: Rochelle 7 13 10 4’34 Brookesmith 14 7 18 29’68
