Lady Pirates take Charlotte Trojanettes in second half

The Nordheim Lady Pirates gave their fans a scare on Dec. 19 when they hosted the Charlotte Trojanettes on home court.

The first quarter the game was tied 14-14. The first half ended with Nordheim with a slight lead 29-24.

Nordheim’s Daija Williams led the team with 16 points not counting the assists she gave to Emily Julian. Julian covered under the basket for the offensive rebounds or the quick pass from Daija. It paid off for the Lady Pirates as Julian picked up several points.

Nordheim girl’s basketball coach Randy Castillo said, “We needed to step up. The first half every time they (Charlotte) had a girl drive the baseline [we did not respond well]. We need to be a little more aggressive on defense and not allow them to take the lay-up or quick pass to the post or us making the foul.”

Pirates seize the Trojans 68-37

The Nordheim Pirates scheduled a near last minute game just before school break against the Charlotte Trojans on Dec. 19 at home.

Nordheim Pirate’s basketball coach Carlton Williams said, “Our defense was really good the first half. We had a couple of times where we did not cut off baseline and got fouls. Other than that, we have never played better defense.”

Charlotte came out like a storm during the third quarter. With the increased pace Nordheim made several pass errors. Charlotte scored 17 points in the quarter to Nordheim’s 19 points.

Yorktown Kitty Kats take it one day, one game at a time

The Yorktown Kitty Kats have come a long way from last year overcoming obstacles one day and one game at a time.

Yorktown Kitty Kat basketball coach Bruno Mata said, “The girls are still learning the fundamentals but they are making progress.”

Last year the Kats had a 4-17 overall record with two wins coming into district games. This year they are 4-3.

The Kitty Kats played Louise on Dec. 2 and won by 10 points which was a big improvement from last year’s lost by 41 points. On Dec. 9, Yorktown played McMullen County and lost by 18 points. Last year the Kats lost by 32 points.

The biggest marker of the Kats improvement was against 12th state ranked  team in 1A, Austwell-Tivoli during the Woodsboro tournament.

“We could have beat them with one basket. We were right under the net and could not get the ball in,” Mata said. “We rebounded the ball twice and still could not get it in.”

Wildcats fall behind Greyhounds too early to catch up

The Yorktown Wildcats slowed down the Taft Greyhounds in the forth quarter but it was not enough for the Wildcats to come back from the deficit.

Yorktown had a slow start in the first quarter falling behind 7-20. Yorktown looked good under the basket on defense picking up most of the missed shots. Offensively, the Wildcats was still looking to find their rhythm. Few shots were taken accounting for only seven points in the first quarter.

Beginning of the second quarter Taft came out and scored eight quick points. Some were due from the Wildcat turnovers in their passing game.

Wildcats making the adjustment

 

The Yorktown Wildcats did not expect to travel as far as they did when arriving to the Nordheim Tournament on Dec. 5 especially with all of the traveling calls made against them during the Yorktown vs Nordheim game. Yorktown lost 58-20.
 
Yorktown boys basketball coach Lane Shands said, “They (the Wildcats) were sliding their pivot foot I guess. We got it fixed.”
 
Yorktown is coming into the season  with three freshman, five sophomores and two seniors.
 
Coach Shands said, “We are a young basketball team with no returning starters from last year. We have a lot to work on fundamentally.” 
 
As the tournament progressed so did the Wildcats. With their hard effort and aggression they defeated Prairie Lea 53-38.
