Page 8 December 18, 2008 k The Dec. 9 game lived up to its hype when the Beach Lady Buccaneers used an aggressive pressing-defense aald balanced scor- ing attack to defeat highly touted Harding County Ranchers 67 - 56. It was a very physical game but the Blue and Gold stood up to the test and didn't back down throughout the game. The Buccaneers jumped off to 19 first-quarter points to set the tone, but the Harding County Ranchers from Buffalo, S.D., didn't exactly sit back as they came back with 15 of their own points. In_the first quarter, Brittney Dietz canle ready for the challenge and went to work against Harding County's star center, senior J. Painter. Opening up the quarter, sophomore Dietz attacked the bas- ket, netting nine points to help her team get off to a nluch needed good start. In that same quarter she netted five of seven from the charity line, getting Painter in early foul trouble. The second quarter really told the stoW of the game as the Bucs' aggressive defense caused numerous turnovers that led to a very balanced scoring attack where all five starters scored and combined for 18 points ,and holding Harding County with single digits of only eight points. Goring into the locker room. the Bucs took a 37 - 23 half time lead, shooting 11 of 15 free throws, setting up a very comfortable lead that they would eventually need. The third quarter was much the same defensively for the Bucs, hold- ing the Ranchers to only 10 points while the Lady Bucs only managed 13 of their own. The fourth quarter, both teanas combined for 40 points with Harding Count3 being the victor of the last quarter outscoring BHS 23 - 17, but the game went to the Buccaneers.

This is going to be an interesting year, Tonight the girls stepped up to the plate and hit a homemn. Not exactly basketball terminology, but the point that they lined up and were ready for the challenge. I liked our team's attitude and for the first time showed some maturity. Our interior defense impressed me. Jill didn't have great numbers but defended the interior with good strength.

It was very physical underneath the basket. She took a beating, but dished it back and gave us a good physical inside presence. She knew that she had to be assertive in her position and took charge of the paipt early in the game. Making 10 of 12 from the free throw line didn't hurt her team either. All in all it Was a good effort as our kids knew where the ball was most of the time and snuck in to get some steals and picks. After the steals and picks, came the good pass- ing that put us on some good runs that impressed everyone. I was very' proud of our girls read- ing the floor on defense. They read their traps well. The game was one of those "good feeling" games. We played a very good South Dakota team and our players responded in such a positive way. They took third last year and t like their chances of winning it all in 2009. Hoopster Classic showdown Last spring, Don Hanson, the edi- tor of North Dakota's Hoopster Magazine, invited the Lady Buccaneers to his very own Hoopster Classic that is played at the Bismarck Civic Center. It is touted as the Class B version of the East meeting the West for both boys and girls - making it a very compet- itive event of Class B basketball. The Hoopster Classic is in ~ts third year, making it a very popular event and a very nice venue for all of the players who get to participate. Hanson treats all of the teams after each ore of their games to pizzas brought right to their locker room. The two-day event is priceless for the tans as they can watch basketball all day for only $8. This year's clas- sic held many fans back home as blizzard warnings came into effect with sub-zero temperatures. The weather did cause some cancella- tions of some games, but did not hin- der the Lady Buccaneers' playing of their two games. On Friday; the Buccaneers hopped the bus at 8 a.m. and hit the hardwood at 12:30 p.m. to meet up with the Thompson Tommys. Thompson. N.D.. is located about 10 miles from Grand Forks. The Buccaneers had its hardest game of its young season as they never could find their legs battling Thompson, only to lose their first game of the season in overtime. The contest was close throughout. There were 13 lead changes, and the biggest lead for either team was eight points. Abby Weinreis sunk seven three pointers for the Bucs but was matched by Taylor Broyles of Thompson with her own seven bombs that took down the .~third- ranked Buccaneers. Both players led their own teams in scoring with 23 points, but it was Broyle's last three- pointer that proved to be the game winner for the Tonunys. The game featured 20 three-pointers. Eleven were scored by Thompson and nine were scored by Beach. BEACH (65): Abby Weinreis 23, Brittney Dietz 19, Jill Rising 10, Kayla Dolyniuk 4, Kelsey Schitto 4, Teal Waldal 3, Emily Hardy 2.

Fouled out: Beach, Rising, Hardy Beach defeats Grafton Coming off their only loss of the season, the Buccaneers wasted no time jumping off to an early first quarter, 20 - 7 lead and half-time score of 38 - 22. Katie Houdek, the 6' 1" center for Grafton being recruit- ed by UND, did not intimidate the likes of Brittney Dietz. Dietz received the ball inside and proceed- ed with a variety of moves that totaled for 18 first-half points. It was by far Brittney's best half of her career that led the assault on Grafton. The rest of the Buccaneers didn't exactly stand around and watch as the defense picked up and the fast break caught on fire. The legs were back and the Bucs were running with good passes up the floor with impressive finishes. The Spoilers got to within six points, 26-20, in the second quarter, but the Buccaneers finished off the mation technology; and A1 Liebersbach, agriculture education.

We played some good competition and it was a great learning curve for our team. I don't like to lose, but I would rather lose by one than win by forty or fitly. That seems sla'ange, but we learn so much when we are in a good fight. For some reason or a combination of reasons we just didn't have our legs during the Thompson game. Our girls really struggled, but I was proud of the way they pushed them- selves all throughout the game. It might have been the bus ride or the fact that we took a day off before the game, but we just didn't have the snap. Give credit to Thompson, they kept their poise and made some big shots to beat us. The next day told me something about the kids when they tore into Grafton to avenge our loss. Our gifts played the ball tough, made some good double-teams and reacted with steals. They were a totally different team from the previous day's work. The kids displayed some good fast breaks getting down the court mak- ing nice passes and finishing busi- ness. We were a team that had its energy back.
