Kennard-Dale overcomes speed bumps, beats Central

Kennard-Dale's girls basketball team downed Central York, 51-34, on Tuesday.

Daily Record/Sunday News

In retrospect, there were bound to be a few speed bumps for the Kennard-Dale girls' basketball team. A few detours and fender-benders on the road back to where the Rams finished last season.

Consider what Kennard-Dale has lost. Five senior starters to graduation. Three other likely contributors to early-season injuries.

Lately, those hazards seem to be in the Rams' rearview mirror. Kennard-Dale has won four of its last five, the most recent of those a 51-34 home victory against Central York on Tuesday night.

All of which has kept this fresh-faced group clinging to the hope of one-upping the Rams' breakout 14-10 season in 2008.

"In the locker room, in the very beginning of the year, we talked about our goals," said freshman forward Sara Tarbert. "We want to exceed everybody's expectations. We want to make districts and do everything we can do."

The Rams seemed to surprise a drowsy-looking Panthers side (6-8, 4-5 in YAIAA Division I), which slumped to its sixth loss in seven games. Kennard-Dale (7-6, 5-3 in Division II) held Central to single-digits in three out of four quarters, and squeezed enough offense from its frontcourt duo of Tarbert and junior Devon O'Kane.

Tarbert -- thrust into a starting role by a preseason injury to junior Sarah Sumner -- continued her impressive fledgling season. She finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while O'Kane dropped a game-high 17 points.

That pair has proven reliable all season, even during a jagged

early stretch that included losses to Penn Manor, Dallastown and Red Lion.

"It was definitely a new experience to get five new starters in there and get them to gel," Rams coach Jeff Stratmeyer said.

A task complicated by injuries. Kennard-Dale played with three bench players Tuesday, and seems likely to do so the rest of the year.

"The subs that we have, we didn't anticipate them getting a lot of playing time," Stratmeyer said. "But with our injuries, they have."

Still, Stratmeyer's team has survived. Tuesday, it did so with defense. Only three Central York players scored field goals.

Senior forward Dee Dee Mosley had a team-high 13 points and 12 boards for Central, but was well-defended most of the night by Tarbert.

"It was tough," Tarbert said. "You definitely had to post her up and make sure she couldn't go to her right, which is her strong hand."

The rest of the Panthers staggered through multiple scoring droughts. Central never got within seven points in the second half, and was held scoreless the final five minutes of the game.

Kennard-Dale finally cinched the victory when Tarbert hit a plunging O'Kane for a layup to make it 44-34 with 2:26 left. Senior Mariah Smith also finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Rams.

This week doesn't get easier. Kennard-Dale hosts a pair of hot Division I teams -- South Western tonight, and New Oxford on Friday.

The road may not be completely clear yet. But for the surging Rams, it looks a lot more manageable.

"We started off tough," Tarbert said. "But I think throughout the rest of the season it should be a good one."
