IRC puts away Canterbury 49-38


© St. Petersburg Times, published February 11, 2001

LARGO -- In the Class A, District 9 final, Indian Rocks Christian downed Canterbury 49-38.

Canterbury took the early lead 2-0 as the Golden Eagles took almost four minutes to score.

After Andrea Kmet hit a free throw to get Indian Rocks Christian on the board, the Golden Eagles scored nine straight and led after the first period 9-2.

Golden Eagle senior guard Amy Johansen came alive in the second quarter, scoring 10 of her game-high 18 points as the Indian Rocks Christian lead stretched to 29-14 at halftime.

The Golden Eagles scored the first six points of the third quarter to lead 35-14, which effectively put the game out of reach.

The Crusaders did not give up without a fight. Helped by the strong rebounding of Ann Saksefski, they outscored Indian Rocks Christian 11-2 to pull within 37-25 heading into the final quarter.

The Golden Eagles put on a 6-2 spurt to open the final quarter to put the game away. Besides Johansen, the only other Golden Eagle in double figures was Lindsay Swager, who added 10.

Katie Crum scored 17 while Ann Saksefski added 15 points for the Crusaders, who only had three eighth-graders to go along with the starting five sophomores.

"We came out too pumped up to open the game," Indian Rocks Christian coach Phil Farver said.

"And it showed. We finally settled down and wore them down late in the game."
