WC falls in the Battle of the Ladybirds

It was a classic tale of two halves for the Washington Catholic Lady Cardinals Tuesday night against the North Central Ladybirds.

The balanced scoring of the Ladybirds was able to control the second half and they headed North on Highway 41 with a 70-35 victory at the Bird Cage Thursday night.

Both teams were aggressive early and tried to take the advantage away from inside the paint. Ivy Mangram was able to finally slip behind the zone and hit a layup followed by a Wichman foul.

After the three-point play North Central jumped out to a seven-point advantage early in the first. Mary Anne Wichman answered right back with a 3-pointer of her own. Wichman was able to hit a pair of free throws to cut the Washington Catholic deficit to three.

Two Elizabeth Perkins free throws cut the North Central lead to 10-9 after one quarter.

In the second quarter, Aubrey Plaza and Katelynn Kennedy scored six quick points to extend the North Central lead to seven early into the second quarter forcing WC coach Michael Hopkins to take a timeout.

Out of the timeout Elizabeth Perkins got a good look inside and the lead was cut to five.

North Central’s Taylor Netherlain hits a three pointer and the North Central lead was extended back to eight. With 30 seconds to go in the first half, Hannah Lewis hits a basket but Brooklyn Allen answered right back for the Lady Cardinals. Knowing they had one shot left in the half the Ladybirds made the most of it and Gabby Kreischer hit a three to close out the half. The Ladybirds took a 24-13 advantage into the locker room.

The third quarter was not the storybook ending Washington Catholic was looking for in their tale.

North Central was able to use an 8-0 run to start the third quarter to push the lead to 32-13. Wichman ran into foul trouble in the third quarter after picking up her fourth foul of the night.
