Pinellas: County roundup
By BRANDON WRIGHT
Published November 21, 2007
It wasn't that Shorecrest did anything different in the fourth quarter Tuesday against Bradenton Christian.
It just did it better.
The host Chargers outscored Bradenton Christian 15-6 in the final quarter en route to a 48-43 win.
"Our rebounding in the fourth quarter was really the difference," Shorecrest coach Dave Swanson said. "We held them to just one shot per trip and got some baskets in transition. It was a close game all the way though."
Shorecrest (1-1) didn't have anyone in double digits but was led by nine from Rachel Shea. The Chargers' Sandy Lowry finished with eight points while teammates Becky Davis, Jasmine Cohen and Natalie Schafer had seven apiece.
Shorecrest plays St. Petersburg at 6 tonight at St. Petersburg Catholic in the SPC Thanksgiving Shootout.
Boca Ciega 70, Largo 52
The Pirates moved to 3-0 behind 20 points from Tamara Taylor and 17 from Tory Stephens. Boca Ciega outscored the Packers 23-9 in the decisive third quarter.
"We're working on getting our chemistry right, and I think that in the third quarter it all came together," Bogie assistant coach Willie Johnson said. "We eliminated the hasty turnovers and were able to press them a little."
The Pirates held Egypt Thomas, the county's leading scorer coming into the night, to 12.
"We knew about her coming in and her ability down low," Johnson said. "Our plan coming in was to crash the boards and limit her as much as possible."
CCC 44, Bishop McLaughlin 41
The host Marauders withstood a big Bishop McLaughlin third-quarter run for the win. CCC's Eric Segert was outstanding, scoring 34 including six 3s. Bishop McLaughlin was led by 13 points from Chris Overbecky. CCC (2-0) faces Northside Christian at 6 Saturday.
Dixie Hollins 61, East Lake 48
Devonta Davis scored 23 and Micah Lacy added 11 as the Rebels moved to 3-0.
"East Lake's a very good team and they run their sets very well," Rebels coach Travis Hill said. "We gave up a lot of second shots early and cut them down as the game wore on."
Kendall O'Neill finished with 13 and Matt Moore added 11. Dixie Hollins next plays Monday at home against Pinellas Park.
Jesuit 66, SPC 49
SPC's Tracy Parks poured in a game-high 30 but it wasn't enough for the Barons, who were outscored in every quarter.
