St. John’s senior Jessica Recker contorts her body to try and get this shot off successfully among three Coldwater players Thursday night at Arnzen Gymnasium. She scored 17 points but it wasn’t enough as the Lady Blue Jays fell to the Cavaliers.
DELPHOS — St. John’s seemingly had things going its way Thursday night in Midwest Athletic Conference girls basketball action at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium.
The Lady Blue Jays led Coldwater 34-28 heading into the final period.
Alas for the Jays, basketball is a 4-quarter game and the Lady Cavaliers owned the finale 17-7 to grab a 45-41 victory.
In truth, Coldwater sophomore Hannah Bruns (18 markers, 9 boards) owned the fourth, scoring 10 of the team’s points. She got away from the Blue Jay defense either in transition or by posting up in the half-court game. Her transition deuce at 3:04 gave Coldwater the lead for good at 42-41. Brooke Welsch hit a pair of free throws at 2:00 to move that to 44-41. Sophomore Jill Kanney could only hit one of six freebies — including two front end of the bonus — in the final 52.1 ticks but the Cavalier 1-2-2 zone defense made that stand up. The Jays (5-4, 1-2) committed six of their 14 game turnovers in the final four minutes and they missed their final six shots to go scoreless the last five minutes.
