Find out what's happening at Mooseheart
There was a point early in Wednesday’s Indian Creek-Mooseheart girls basketball game where the unthinkable seemed possible.
Yes, Mooseheart wasn’t scoring, but neither was Indian Creek. As the first quarter ended with the top-seeded Timberwolves leading 8-0, thoughts of what might happen if Mooseheart’s offense awakened before Indian Creek’s fluttered briefly at the Gardner South Wilmington gym.
That upset bid never materialized. Sparked by a timeout midway through the second quarter, Indian Creek caught fire and dominated the rest of the contest, ultimately securing a convincing 56-8 victory.
“We didn’t come out the way we wanted to,” Mooseheart coach Bryan Miller said. “We did a bit in the first quarter, where we still had ourselves in contention to be competitive.”
Indian Creek scored 18 points in the second quarter, including three 3-pointers to take firm command of the game. Against that, the Ramblers (8-15) got only a Destiny Lewis basket midway through the quarter.
“At the end of the day, we didn’t play offensively the way we wanted to and our defensive intensity wasn’t there,” Miller said.
Indian Creek continued to move beyond its sluggish start in the third quarter, by which time the ultimate outcome of the game was decided. Lewis was Mooseheart’s bright spot offensively, scoring 6 of her team’s points. Diamond Winston scored the Ramblers other basket.
Winston graduates and so does Christina Segbee, but the rest of the Ramblers roster returns for 2016-17 to attempt to continue a trend that has seen the team increase its victory total four seasons in a row.
“We didn’t set any goals as far as wins and losses for this team, but it’s a step forward for the program, and I’m happy with that,” Miller said.
Madison Russell led Indian Creek with 12 points while McKayli Vann added 11 for the Timberwolves.
