Bluejays fall

After coming up with a steal, Bluejay Brenna Rief takes the ball to the other end of the floor during the Bishop Neumann game last week in West Point. Defending on the play is Cavaliers’ Alyssa Rezac. Neumann defeated GACC, 80-51.

For three quarters, any time Bishop Neumann appeared to be on the verge of blowing the game open, Guardian Angels Central Catholic battled back.

The final eight minutes, however, were a different story.

In the final quarter, Bishop Neumann did blow the game wide open with a 29-point period, which sparked the state-rated Cavaliers to an 80-51 win over GACC last week Tuesday in West Point.

And while the game snowballed on GACC late, Bluejay head coach Jerry Stracke was pleased with the fight he saw in his team.

“Bishop Neumann just has so many weapons. They are very athletic, and height-wise, we just couldn’t match up with them,” Stracke said.

“But I really liked our attitude and effort. It will pay off down the road. The girls just play with that never-quit attitude.”
