Shooting Woes Spell Defeat for ACGC Girls Versus CAM, 51-38

A solid CAM Cougars' girls' basketball team gradually pulled away from the ACGC Chargers on Monday to claim a 51-38 win on the Chargers home court. The Chargers challenged the 10-2 Cougars in the early going and trailed by just a single point at 12-11 after the first quarter. By halftime the CAM lead had increased to 25-19, after which the Cougars remained in control throughout the second half.

Both teams struggled from the field in the first half, with ACGC hitting 30% of its shots and CAM hitting 31%. Alaina Bunde led the ACGC scoring in the first half with 4 points, while Reagan Carney and Sophie Dorsey each had 3. Despite struggling during the fist half, the Chargers were still in the game.

Unfortunately for ACGC, the Cougar defense limited the Chargers to single digits in the third quarter to increase its lead to twelve points at 38-26. ACGC scored just one field goal in the quarter and a total of seven points.

The fourth quarter was evenly played with the Cougars outscoring the home team by a single point at 13-12. The Chargers' shooting woes continued in the second half, as the team made 3 of 18 tries from the field.

Unofficial statistics indicate that the Cougars shot 40% for the game, making 21 of 52 attempts. ACGC was 29% from the floor with 10 makes in 35 tries. The Chargers' shooting from the charity stripe was also less than desired at 52% on 14 makes in 27 shots.

No Charger scored in double figures, as Bunde coming the closest with 9 points, and Mercedez Richter with 8 points.

The less than stellar performance by the Chargers drops the season record to 8 wins and 6 losses, with a conference record of 6-3. The team is still in position to finish the season with a first division finish in the WCAC.

Score by Quarter:

CAM 12 13 13 13--51

ACGC 11 8 7 12--38
