Lady Cards fall to Shoals


After half, WC was able to force Shoals into two quick turnovers but were unable to convert on those looks. Foul trouble would bite Perkins again. After sitting out the second quarter due to her third foul Perkins picked up her fourth foul quickly in the third. Instead of sitting her Coach Hopkins decided to roll the dice and kept Perkins in. The gamble paid off as Perkins was able to still get to the basket and create scoring for Washington Catholic. Shoals picked their press back up late in the third quarter and forced Washington Catholic into three straight turnovers and took a comfortable 48-29 advantage into the fourth.

The fourth quarter saw Nicole Harder continue her shooting barrage as she opened the quarter with a quick basket. Mary Anne Wichman had seen enough. She opened the Lady Cardinals scoring on a three pointer and then a quick hustle play by Wichman on the defensive end allowed her to draw a foul on Shoals and get the free throw line to give Washington Catholic a quick 5-0 run. At that point the Lady Cardinals were in the bonus and Wichman and Perkins were able to take advantage.

Just when it seemed like the momentum was going the Lady Cardinals way though the transition attack of Shoals stymied any run that the Cardinals were able to make. Shoals took the victory 57-41 to move to 2-8. When asked how he would attack back to back tough games Hopkins said, “We are going to go back to high energy practices. We are going to just go back to the absolute fundamentals again. We are going to just go at it and continue to work hard.”

Shoals was led by Harder with 17 and 12 each from Ashton Allbright and Caitlin Sanders. The Lady Cardinals were led by Mary Anne Wichman with 20 and 17 from Perkins. Sydney Dunbar and Kasey Ivy rounded out the Lady Cardinal scoring with two points for each of them.
