Knocked out

Lady Jackets fall in first round action

CORBIN — By Les Dixon For the Times-Tribune

BARBOURVILLE — Pineville captured its fourth straight 13th Region All 'A' Classic Tournament win by disposing of Williamsburg in first round action Monday, 49-23.

The Lady Mountain Lions turned up the defensive pressure on Williamsburg, forcing the Lady Yellow Jackets into 27 turnovers, including 12 in the fourth quarter.

"We have improved a lot," Pineville coach Brenda Gambrel said. "We really looked good on defense tonight.

"We knew coming into the game that tonight was very important," she added. "I thought we played well."

Williamsburg could never get on track. The Lady Yellow Jackets struggled shooting from the floor the entire game, turning in a dismal eight-of-41 effort, including going one-of-11 from three-point range.

"We just didn't shoot well," Williamsburg coach Andrea Ellis said. "Pineville played a very good game."

Pineville's defense of the 13th Region All 'A' Classic Tournament crown started out on the right foot. The Lady Mountain Lions (8-7) jumped out to a 20-4 lead in the first quarter behind the play of Erica Gambrell and Devon Enix.

The duo combined to knock down three three-pointers during the game's first eight minutes, as Gambrel scored seven points during the period.

Williamsburg turned out to be its own worst enemy during the first quarter by connecting on only one-of-13 shot attempts.

Things didn't get much better for the Lady Yellow Jackets during the second quarter, as Enix scored eight of her 11 first half points during the period.

Pineville led 30-11 with 3:28 remaining in the first half after a basket by Rachel Barnes.

The Lady Yellow Jackets (1-12) rallied late during the second quarter, trimming their deficit to 30-15 at the 2:04 mark before seeing the Lady Mountain Lions go on a 5-1 run to close out the half while taking a commanding 35-16 advantage into the locker room at the half.

Pineville knocked down 13-of-21 shot attempts during the game's first 16 minutes, but did manage to turn the ball over eight times.

Williamsburg struggled from the floor, shooting only four-of-24 while turning the ball over nine times.

Both teams struggled on offense during the third quarter. The two teams combined to score 11 points, as Pineville outscored the Lady Yellow Jackets to extend their lead to 22 points (42-20) heading into the fourth quarter.

Gambrel managed to four straight points to end the period while Barnes added three. The Lady Mountain Lions connected on two-of-six shot attempts during the period while Williamsburg shot two-of-10 while turning the ball over six times.

The Lady Yellow Jackets failed to take advantage of Pineville misfiring on its seven shots during the fourth quarter, as Barnes added on to her team's lead by knocking down a three-pointer along with an old-fashioned three-pointer. She finished the game with 12 points while Gambrel led all scorers with a 16-point effort.

The Lady Mountain Lions finished the game shooting, 17-of-39from the floor while turning the ball over 20 times.

Pineville 49, Williamsburg 23

Pineville    20    15    7    7—49
