GACC back on track, winners of last four
Thursday, 30 January 2014 15:51
Following a red-hot first quarter, Central Catholic locked the game into cruise control as the Lady Jays posted a 72-45 win over Hartington Cedar Catholic last Saturday.
Krista Fischer nailed two of Central Catholic’s four opening quarter treys as the Bluejays jumped out to a 27-5 advantage.
“That first quarter we played really well, but we kind of let up after that and got a little sloppy,” Bluejay head coach Jerry Stracke said. “We need to develop an instinct where we put teams away and not allow them to come back.”
Central Catholic, who had been struggling to shoot the long-ball as of late, finished with seven three-pointers.
Jenny Knobbe topped the Bluejay offense with 15 points, while Melanie Stratmann added 13, Fischer 11 and Gabby Knobbe 10.
Following last night’s 59-44 win over state-rated Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family, #3 Central Catholic improves to 17-1 this season. More on last night’s game will be made available next week.
This was the start of a tough stretch for the Lady Jays. Prior to reaching postseason play, Central Catholic, could potentially play up to three more state-ranked opponents to close out the regular season. GACC did earn the top seed in the Mid-State Conference tourney.
