Lady Tigers Jump Out Early to Whip Carthage

Coach Kris Flood talked earlier this week about the importance of jumping ahead quickly on the road at Carthage. His Lady Tigers did that by holding Carthage to just three points in the first quarter as they stayed unbeaten in the Central Ozark Conference with a 53-34 road win.

“[Carthage] made a slight lineup adjustment . They went a little more guard-heavy,” said Flood. “Once we saw some of those match-ups, especially with the way our guards can guard and get up in the frontcourt, we thought ‘We’ll just come out and go a little bit, and maybe get the tempo up, and maybe that will help us come out of the gate.'”

The Lady Tigers didn’t look especially sharp offensively in the first quarter, but their defense still helped them build a sizeable lead.
Republic didn’t allow Carthage to score a field goal in its half-court offense for the entire first quarter. Carthage’s only bucket of the first period came on a fast break after beating the Republic press. Republic led 13-3 at the end of the first quarter and 23-9 at halftime.

Halli Bartelsmeyer continued her hot streak, scoring 21 points to lead Republic. Bartelsmeyer has scored 25, 19, and 21 points in Republic’s last three games.

Eight different players scored for Republic.

Republic improves to 13-7 overall and 4-0 in the Central Ozark Conference. They’ll play again next Tuesday at home against Willard as part of a “supernight” that combines boys and girls games.

Halli Bartelsmeyer 21, Jade Kirby 9, Clara Fronabarger 6, Jazzy Kirby 5, Shealyn Barrett 4, Delaney Smith 4, Carle Ward 2, Anna Bell 2
