Defense rules in twin routs for Seven Rivers

The boys and girls teams each allow single digits in big wins over Cedar Key Christian.

Published January 8, 2005

LECANTO - Lacey Lyons and Corey Ludwick, respectively, led the Seven Rivers Christian girls and boys basketball teams to easy "mercy rule" victories Friday night over Cedar Key Christian at the Seven Rivers gym.

Lyons hit 22 points as Seven Rivers girls (11-3 overall, 3-0 in Class A, District 7) pounded Cedar Key 76-8. Lyons, who averages 23 points, hit 11 of 13 shots, had nine assists, six steals and five rebounds in one half. Rachel Ebert scored 18. Rachel Capra scored 16 and had eight steals.

"I don't like to sit on the bench," Lyons said. "It gives others a chance to play, though."

The Warriors took a 31-2 first quarter lead. A running clock was used throughout the second half of both games.

Shawna Fenton scored all eight points for Cedar Key (2-5).

"It's an opportunity for everyone to play," Seven Rivers girls coach Scott Swander said. "Some of the younger girls came in and did a good job. (Rachel) Pecheck came in and played great."

In the boys game, Ludwick scored 28 as Seven Rivers (5-8, 2-1) blasted Cedar Key 57-6. Ludwick scored seven points in the first quarter when the Warriors took a 14-2 lead.

"I thought our kids played at a high level tonight," Seven Rivers boys coach Jim Ervin said. "It was a good night for us even though the score was lopsided, we played well offensively and defensively. ... I thought we did things we were capable of doing tonight."

Ludwick, who averages 23 points, felt he regained his shooting touch Friday night.

"The last couple of days I haven't been shooting the ball well percentage-wise," Ludwick said. "I got back on track with good ball movement. I was taking better shots and got better results. I thought we did very well playing at our level. We ran the offense very well."
