Hillsborough: County roundup
By KEITH NIEBUHR
Published December 5, 2007
Tampa Prep hadn't beaten St. Petersburg Catholic in eight years, and when the Barons rallied to take a second-half lead Tuesday night, it looked as if the streak might reach nine.
But that's when, as Tampa Prep coach Joe Fenlon said, "Our kids decided they wanted to win the game."
Thanks to a strong fourth quarter, the Terrapins did just that.
Behind senior wing David Waller's 19-point, 19-rebound effort and three clutch free throws by Conner Fenlon, Tampa Prep escaped with a 66-63 victory at home.
"It's a great win for us," Joe Fenlon said.
Tampa Prep (3-1) led by nine at the half, but SPC (1-3) took control in the third quarter and moved ahead by three going into the fourth. The Terrapins answered by scoring seven straight points to open the quarter and never trailed again.
"From a coaching standpoint, it was a great thing to see," Fenlon said.
Tracy Parks scored 23 for the Barons.
Bayshore Christian 49, Cambridge 38
At Cambridge, the Faith Warriors improved to 2-0 as guard Fred Lewis scored a team-high 20 points. Tahire Robertson led Cambridge with 15.
Bayshore led 22-10 at the half.
Bradenton St. Stephen's 2, Holy Names 1
At the Academy of the Holy Names, the Jaguars fell to 3-6 after a hard-fought game. Freshman midfielder/forward Alex Mollanazar scored AHN's lone goal, drawing the Jaguars to within one at the 70th minute.
"We played better than the score reflects," AHN coach Jennifer McGee said. "We dominated for the majority of the game. We just couldn't finish."
Jefferson 55, Robinson 21
At Jefferson, the Dragons improved to 5-1 while the Knights fell to 0-8.
Atavia Blake led Jefferson with 14 points. Zhanea Charles paced Robinson with 10.
"Jefferson played a great game," Robinson coach Jessica Vitale said. "They're a talented team"
Hillsborough 76, Chamberlain 32
At Hillsborough, the Terriers improved to 6-3 behind freshman guard Cassandra Nevarez, who scored a game-high 19 points and recorded five assists.
Junior guard Shalisia Hall added 17 points.
Hillsborough led 22-10 after the opening quarter and 50-22 at the half.
"This is probably the first time the whole season we've had a complete game," Terriers coach Chris Brazzle said. "Everything was clicking"
Gwendolyn Fernandez led Chamberlain (4-4) with 11 points.
