Lady Wildcats top Williamsburg, 42-27

CORBIN — By Les Dixon For the Times-Tribune

WILLIAMSBURG — The Lynn Camp Lady Wildcats' winning ways continued Tuesday on the road, as they defeated 13th Region foe Williamsburg, 42-27.

Lynn Camp (3-0) gave the Lady Yellow Jackets a steady dose of Jessica May and Heather Wilson during the 15-point win.

May led all scorers with 18 points while Wilson recorded a double-double, finishing the game with 10 points and 13 rebounds.

“I thought Jessica played great tonight,” Lynn Camp coach Richard Jones said. “She shot really well from the free-throw line and rebounded the ball well.

“She started off slow, but played a whole lot better in the second half,” he added. “I thought we played good tonight.”

The Lady Yellow Jackets (0-4) were coming off their best offensive performance just 24 hours before, but couldn't get anything going offensively against the tenacious Lynn Camp defense.

“I thought we played very good defensively,” Jones said. “They played very good against Pulaski County and I knew we needed to stop their penetration and we did that.

“We were able to keep them off the boards and we were able to rebound,” he added. ”I'm satisfied with the way we played tonight. We are still quite away from where we need to be, but it's not February yet.”

The Lady Wildcats took control of the game early, jumping out to an 11-4 lead in the first quarter behind the play of May, who scored four of her six first half points in the game's first eight minutes.

Lynn Camp opened the second quarter with a 5-0 run and extended its lead to 16-4 before closing the first half out with a 5-2 run. The Lady Wildcats led 21-10 at halftime, as Wilson scored five of her six first half points in the second quarter. Brooklyn Bryant also had six points in the first half for Lynn Camp.

“Coach Jones coached a good game tonight – he always coaches well,” Williamsburg coach Andrea Ellis said. “They kept us from driving and rebounded the ball. He had a great game plan.

“We've got to learn from this,” she added. “We can't take a step backwards.”

The Lady Wildcats continued to dominate in the third quarter. Lynn Camp forced Williamsburg into seven turnovers in the quarter while an old-fashioned three-point play by May extended her team's lead to 30-14 with less than a minute remaining in the period.

Lynn Camp outscored the Lady Yellow Jackets, 12-4, during the third quarter to take a 33-14 advantage into the final quarter of play.

Brandi Coe's three-pointer at the buzzer capped off a 6-0 run for Lynn Camp.

The Lady Wildcats put the finishing touches on their win by scoring nine points in the fourth quarter.

Both teams will be back in action later this week in the 18th Annual Bowman Invitational.
