Cedar Creek

A noncompetitive night of athletic competition is about as appetizing as the week-old meatloaf in the back of your fridge and potentially as dangerous to a contending team as a patch of black ice on a dark sidewalk. Of course, dead meat-loaf can have its dangers as well. “I’m glad to have that one over,” Georgetown coach Rhonda Farney said after a night at Bastrop Cedar Creek that  included a forfeit victory in the freshman game, an 81-2 win in the JV contest and a 69-24 triumph in the varsity encounter. “It’s hard to play games like that. Your biggest worry is possibly getting someone hurt.” On the positive side, the victory, in which Farney was able to find playing time for all hands, kept the seventh-ranked Lady Eagles (24-8) deadlocked with East View (24-5) for the lead in District 18-5A at 9-1 with two games remaining in the regular season. The Patriots, ranked 18th in the Texas Girls Coaches Association poll, currently own an edge on GHS with a 46-42 win in the first round.The Lady Eagles and Patriots, who are coming off a 45-33 win over third-place Bastrop, will both be trying to avoid possible “trap games” on Friday prior to their expected championship showdown at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Eagle Gym. Georgetown will play host to Hutto (5-5 in 18-5A, 13-22 season) and East View will visit Elgin (1-9 in 18-5A, 4-25 season) on Friday.

The Lady Eagles game with the Patriots will be the nightcap of a boys-girls doubleheader.

    

Georgetown defeated Hutto, 48-27, in the first-round meeting on Jan. 24 in Hutto. Friday’s outing with the Lady Hippos will also be Cancer Warriors Night. Hutto, which is still battling Manor for the fourth playoff spot in 18-5A, is the only team to own a win over the Patriots — a 45-36 decision on Dec. 20. In fact, if GHS beats Hutto and Manor tops hapless Cedar Creek on Friday, the two will be playing for a playoff spot on Tuesday when they meet head-to-head in Hippoville. Looking ahead to bi-district, the only thing certain about 17-5A is that second-ranked Cedar Park (10-0 district, 27-3 season) has clinched the district crown and No. 1 seeding in the playoffs with Pflugerville Connally and Marble Falls battling for second and third and Pflugerville (5-6), Leander Glenn (3-7) and Leander Rouse (3-7) in the fight for fourth. Although it currently has a two-game edge, Pflugerville needs an upset win over Cedar Park or losses by both Glenn and Rouse to clinch fourth on Friday. Glenn faces a potentially tough task at Marble Falls and Rouse has winless Pflugerville Weiss (0-10) at home.

   

In Tuesday’s battle at Cedar Creek, Georgetown charged out to a 24-4 lead after the first period, upped the advantage to 33-9 at the half, ran the margin to 51-12 after three quarters. The Lady Eagles bounced the lead out to 40 points with 2:40 remaining in the third quarter on a field goal by McCall Hampton. The largest margin was the final 45 point difference as Jacqui Spencer scored a basket with 41 seconds left to play. Statistically, the game was as uneven as the final score indicated.  GHS held Cedar Creek to just six fields in 42 attempts (14.3 percent), while hitting on 24 of 54 (44.4 percent), posted a 41-19 rebounding edge, forced 31 turnovers and stole the ball 26 times. Individually for Georgetown, junior post Lauren Woodard led the attack with 14 points and seniors Makenzy Mouton and Hampton added 12 and 11 points, respectively. Senior guards Kylee Sander and Kylie Ellsworth each pitched in nine points, while Spencer had seven.Six different Lady Eagles had three or more rebounds with Hampton grabbing seven and Woodard and Mouton each pulling down six. Despite scoring only four points, junior point guard Graci Harris topped the assist chart with six and had a team-high seven steals.  Sander added six steals and Ellsworth had five assists.

  

“Woodard and Spencer came off the bench and did good things for us,” Farney said. “Our seniors played really well. We’re ready to get home and start preparing for Hutto.”After Georgetown opened the JV game with a 10-0 run in the initial two minutes and 24 seconds of the game, Cedar Creek scored a field goal and then went 29 minutes and 22 seconds without scoring an additional point. The victory improved GHS to 9-0 in district and 17-8 for the season.

“The JV kids played really well,” Farney said. “Megan Herring had an exceptional game and Sam Folsom also stood out.” Herring led GHS scoring with 18 points with Morgan Larson (13 points), Shelia Lee (15 points) , Vyctorya Lehr (10 points) and Brooke White (10 points) also scoring in double figures. For the Freshman Blue, now 9-0 in district and 26-0 for the year, it was their second victory by forfeit in their past three 18-5A games. “I was disappointed that the Freshman Blue didn’t get to play,” Farney said. Friday’s sub-varsity schedule with Hutto will find the JV and Freshman Blue both playing at 5:30 p.m.
