“Overall, I was proud of them and proud of how hard they worked,” she added. “We just go back to the drawing board and work on some things that we’re not as good at right now.”
Cayuga and Westwood both struggled mightily in the third quarter as the Ladycats put in just four points to the Lady Panthers’ six.
Thankfully, for both squads, the fourth quarter was a different story.
Spears and Benson led the way for their respective teams, and McEnturff said she was especially proud of the way Benson played tonight.
“She’s my gem down low,” McEnturff said. “She’s just a workhorse. She can go up and get rebounds and put them back in. We’re going to face that all season long of who the other team is going to matchup against her. She’s a very integral part of our game. Last year she started to come around, and she’s very quiet when she scores. People don’t realize in the end that she just had a double-double. She’s so valuable for us.”
Cayuga’s coach John Jackson was unavailable for comment after the game.
