Bucs lose to the Trojans

Live Oak — The Branford High School girls basketball team lost to the Hamilton County Trojans on Jan. 8 with the final score at 44-50, Trojans.

The first quarter, the Bucs were able to secure eight and the Trojans 13. The second quarter the Bucs made nine  and Trojans 12 bringing the score at the half, 17-25 with Trojans on top.

The third quarter, The Bucs were able to bring their score to 24 and the Trojans 35. By the final buzzer the score was 44-50 with Trojans taking the victory.

The top players of the Bucs for the game were Blair Bullock, Stephanie Copeland and Katie White.

“They’re generally who everything rotates around,” said Athletic Director Wade Cashwell. “They’re play makers.”

Cashwell said that Bullock whose only a sophomore made over 350 points last year and he’s convinced this season she’ll exceed that number.

“The biggest, stat-wise overall for team, this is the highest free throw percentage that we’ve put up all season, 72 percent,” said Cashwell. “For a girl’s basketball team shooting 72 percent is unheard of.”

Cashwell explained that the free throw opportunities have been a major focus this season and that he has stressed to the girls to capitalize on those shots.

“The girls have taken it to heart,” said Cashwell. “We have consistently been in the past couple of games shooting in the 60 percent. But this game, to break the 70 percent barrier for a girl’s team, I’m proud of.”

Blair Bullock brought in 19 points. Stephanie Copeland pulled in 14 and Katie White made five. White also made eight rebounds, three steals and four assists.

“I’d like to mention Ashley Horn,” said Cashwell. ”She had seven rebounds and she’s the smallest kid on our team. As a matter of fact, she’s out re-bounded everybody, but Stephanie, even our forwards.”

Cashwell admitted that it was still a good game and he knows his team is aware of their weaknesses and what to work on. He’s hoping they’ll keep focused and keep working hard.
