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.”

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.”
