Kennard-Dale girls rally past Spring Grove

The Rams came back from a 16-point deficit to beat the Rockets.

For The Evening Sun

The Kennard Dale High Ram girls' basketball team completed a comeback of epic proportions Friday night at Spring Grove High School by ultimately triumphing over the Lady Rockets, 44-39.

Kennard-Dale's Devon O'Kane hit a go-ahead 3-point jumper with 55
seconds to go in the contest, capping a Ram second half-rally from a
16-point deficit.

Having trailed almost the entire first half, the Rams came out in the
third quarter and began the uphill climb from a 28-12 score.

Despite only hitting on 4-of-16 field goal attempts in the first half,
the Rams came out firing to start the final 16 minutes of action.

Sam Pierce nailed a 3-pointer to open the third quarter to begin the
Rams' 7-0 run, cutting the Spring Grove lead to single digits and
prompting Spring Grove coach Vance Myers to burn a timeout.

"You start to get a little worried, feel a little uncomfortable as you
see your lead dwindling," Myers said sfter the game.The run, which was
sparked by the passing of the Rams' Mariah Smith, was stalled by Spring Grove's Allie Garrett, who came out of the timeout and knocked down a short jumper to extend the Lady Rocket lead back to double digits.

However, Kennard-Dale continued to chip away, outscoring the hosts 6-3 over the final five minutes of the quarter. "I thought we were fine until (Kennard-Dale) took the lead," said Myers, whose team took a seemingly comfortable eight-point lead into
the final eight minutes.

Sara Tarbert was not content to see her team fade away quietly. While Spring Grove turned the ball over on back-to-back possesions at the beginning of the final quarter, the Rams' starting forward crashed the glass and secured a rebound and a put-back to bring the Rams within five, the closest they had been since
the first quarter.

If nothing else, Kennard-Dale had brought the visiting fan section back
into the game. The spectators from Kennard-Dale filled the gym with
noise as Spring Grove's offense went conservative and tried to run the
clock out.

"Slowing (your offense) down, I guess, takes you out of some of the
things you're normally trying to do offensively," Myers said about his
team's 11 points in the second half.

"Still, some of the stuff we were running in the second half, we had
run before. You just have to give a lot of credit to Kennard-Dale. They
were able to be a little more aggressive on the perimeter, and we
stopped making shots."

The comeback trail gave way to a furiously-paced final three minutes.

As much as the Lady Rockets wanted to slow things down and protect the ball, the Rams made it impossible with their immense ball pressure.
Passing lanes became clogged and, as soon as a member of the Lady
Rockets received a pass in a corner, a double-team arrived.

The Rams scored in transition with 3:33 left when a pass from Mariah
Smith sliced through the defense and found Tarbert for a cutting lay-up
with 3:33 left.

With the lead trimmed to three, the Lady Rockets' problems were
compounded when Cari McMaster fouled out with 2:53 remaining. Left to battle on without her sister, Codi McMaster and the rest of the Lady
Rockets mustered just two points the rest of the game.
