A&M Knocks Off CHBC

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — BEECHER CITY — Central A&M played like the talented, veteran team it is on Thursday.

Cowden-Herrick/Beecher City played brilliantly at times, but it also played like a young team that’s replacing four starters for stretches as well.

In the end, the latter proved too much for the Lady Hornets to overcome in a 57-47 loss to a team many feel will contend for a Class 1A state title.

“We’ve got a lot of little holes to fill — I knew that, and of course everybody else knew that coming out,” CHBC head coach Carolyn Wendte said of her team. “They did well tonight considering a lot of these kids don’t have a lot of floor experience.”

CHBC came out on fire, racing out to a 9-2 lead, but saw that lead quickly evaporate due to a rash of turnovers to end the quarter. An 18-7 second-quarter advantage had the Lady Raiders leading by 11 at halftime.

Central A&M looked like it might cruise after CHBC came out sluggish in the second half, but Micah Jones spearheaded a furious comeback that had the game tied at 43 just inside the five-minute mark.

But the Lady Raiders closed out strong, finishing off the game on a 11-2 run to escape with a win.

“They responded and they are a good team,” Wendte said. “Not too upset. We held our own and we know what we need to work on.”

One thing CHBC will definitely need to work on is free-throw shooting. The Lady Hornets (1-1) were just 8 for 21 from the line on the night, including 6 for 15 shooting from the charity stripe in the second quarter.

But that wasn’t the only struggle that helped the Lady Raiders seize control of the game, as CHBC made just 1 of 7 field goals in the frame and committed six turnovers.
