    February 13, 2012 No comments

    It was a rough week for Hendricks County schools as the girls IHSAA basketball sectionals concluded over the weekend.  Out of seven schools, six were eliminated in their opening round games.  The Lady Bruins of Tri-West remained as the sole county representative heading into action last Friday night.  Tri-West had drawn an opening round bye and began their sectional playoff run against the host Hornets of Beech Grove.

    Beech Grove had defeated Danville earlier in the week to advance to the sectionals semifinal game.  But the host Hornets would have no answer for Tri-West’s Lauren DeSutter who led all scorers with 31 points as the Bruins extended a 10 point lead at the half to win by 14, 54 -40 and propelled Tri-West into the sectional championship game against Indian Creek.

    Indian Creek entered the contest with a record of 17-7 and finished in second place in the Mid-Hoosier Conference.  The Lady Bruins were making their second consecutive appearance in a sectional championship game but their first as a Class 3A school.

    Scoring was not a problem for both teams to start this contest with Tri-West taking a two point lead after the end of the first quarter at 21 – 19.  But the second quarter would be a different story as the Braves continued to put up points, the Bruins would have their difficulties as they were outscored 21 – 11 to trail Indian Creek at the half 40 – 32.

    The roles would be a reversed in the third quarter as Tri-West erased the 8 point halftime deficit to lead 53-50 going into the fourth quarter.

    Indian Creek would rally in the fourth to send the game into overtime tied at 67.

    The Bruins outscored the Braves 8 – 3 in the extra period to claim their first Class 3A sectional championship and move on to the Lebanon regional with a 75 – 70 victory.

    DeSutter followed her 31 point effort of the night before, with a game a high 36 points.  Jade Hill finished with 18 points for Tri-West.  The Bruins hit seven three-pointers and bested Indian Creek by 12 points from the free throw line.

    Ally Lehman led Indian Creek with 29 points.

    Tri-West’s now owns a record of 19 – 4 and moves on to the Lebanon regional where they will face 19-5 Edgewood this Saturday morning with a tip-off scheduled for 11:30.
