Cats’ grip on early lead fadesDecember 4, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
What looked promising early turned progressively bleak. And at the tail end, the Jasper girls basketball team couldn’t break from its funk.
After jumping to a nine-point advantage after the opening quarter, the Wildcats were outscored in two of the final three quarters and fell 61-52 to North Harrison on Tuesday in Ramsey.
The loss ended Jasper’s four-game win streak against the Lady Cats. Jasper’s last loss to North Harrison came in 2008, also the last time the Wildcats (1-3) began the season dropping three of their first four contests.
Tori Semersheim accrued 19 points on 7-of-11 field goals as Jasper’s only double-digit scorer, while Kendra Lambert carved up the Wildcat defense for 32 points, including 15-of-16 free throws.
Elisabeth Ahlbrand (eight points) sank all four of her shot attempts for Jasper, while Maddie Ubelhor (seven points), Alex Krapf (six) and Emily Jones (five) aided the Cats’ attack. Sermersheim pulled down a team-high 11 rebounds.
North Harrison (4-2) sank 22-of-28 free throws and picked off 13 steals, accounting for more than half of the 25 turnovers committed by Jasper.
Jasper’s next contest comes Monday, when the Cats venture to Heritage Hills (2-2).
