Van Buren girls roll past Comets

ELDON — The Van Buren girls dominated each of the first three quarters and won going away in the SEISC match-up with Cardinal, Tuesday night in Eldon. The win moved Van Buren’s record to 5-1.

“This was a big win for us because we didn’t play well last Saturday night and we are facing a four games in five days stretch,” said Warrior coach Matt Zeitler.

Cardinal struck first as Danae Moses opened the game with a 3. Van Buren scored the next two baskets and grabbed the lead for good. Hannah Haynes scored back to back baskets to put the lead at 8-3. After Lindsay Moore hit two free throws the Warriors answered with five straight to lead 13-5. Moore and Haynes traded baskets to close out the first quarter.

Cardinal started the second with two free throws by Delaney Ridgway before Van Buren scored five straight to lead 20-9. Moore had three points to keep Cardinal within 22-12 just two minutes into the quarter. A Warrior 6-0 run upped the lead to 28-12. Moore hit a 3 before the Warriors closed the half with a 7-0 run to lead 35-15.

Kaitlyn Johnson hit her third 3 of the opening half and added another basket to lead the Warriors with 13 first half points.

“This is my first year as a point guard and I played as a shooting guard, so I’m comfortable looking for the 3.”

Moore, who led the Comets with 10 first half points, would be held to just two points in the final half.

“We rotated three different kids on her (Moore) and I think they all did a good job of limiting her,” added Zeitler.

“When teams really try to take Lindsay (Moore) out of the game, it puts a lot of pressure on our young guards to get the ball inside,” said Cardinal coach Aaron Dose.

It would be critical for the Comets to come out of the half and cut into the lead.

The Warriors would have none of that, as 3s by Johnson and Jordan Billups and six early points by Haynes amounted to a 13-0 start for Van Buren and a 48-15 lead.

Haynes, who was held to just six points in the opening half, would have nine of her game high 22 in the third.

“They were using some different defenses and two or three players were around me all the time,” said Haynes. “I’ve been trying to get to the line more and I think that helps me get going.”

Haynes would add her final seven points in the fourth as the visitors finished off the 62-28 win.

“We’ll get a real look at our depth in the upcoming stretch,” said Zeitler.

The (2-5, 2-4) Comets will host another big rival, Pekin, on Thursday night.
