The Lady Bearcats, who set a school record last week for the most points scored in a game (see page B3 for story), gave no quarter to their host for a 62-44 win. 
It was Ladies night at the Dome in Gering High School as the Scottsbluff Bearcats defeated the Lady Bulldogs 62-44. Scottsbluff opened by dominating Gering in the first quarter 16-8. The Bearcats continued to pour on the pressure and took the second quarter as well 20-11. The Cats hit the locker room with a commanding 17-point lead and a halftime score of 36-19.

G-Town did not roll over and play dead and they shot back in the third frame making up four points and besting Scottsbluff 13-9. Scottsbluff fought back in the final frame and negated all Gering’s work with a 17-12 quarter score. The Bearcats got an 18-point win over the Bulldogs 62-44.

“We knew Gering would make runs and they did a really good job” said Scottsbluff Coach Rachel Larson. “When Gering made a run we made our own run in return. Defensively we played really well. Offensively we were a little bit off but we did a really good job in the second half of pushing the ball in transition and I think that was the difference in the game.”

Gering Coach Adam Freeburg said “I think that was a really great game for us. We are not worrying about the score right now; we are worrying about how are we competing and I thought that we competed extremely hard. We played hard the whole time and I was proud of the girls’ efforts tonight. The girls did not quit, the rest of the season we are not going to worry about the score and we are going to worry about competing, that is what they did and I am proud of them for that.”

Top scoring honors for Scottsbluff were a tie between Junior Aly Camacho and Junior Zoe Holscher with 19 points each. Junior Chloey Reifschneider and junior Chesney Walker tied for second at 8 points each. Sophomore Rudi Salazar had 5 points. Senior Kyra Willats had 3 points.

Senior Kaylee Spreier took top scoring honors for Gering with 14 points. Senior Ashlyn Schultz had 11 points for runner up. Sophomore Kaylee Bohnsack had 7 points. Junior Allie Boggs and Sophomore Mariah Conn had each had 5 points and freshman Victoria Schwartz had 2 points.
