Slow start costly for Camanche girls

CAMANCHE — One of the biggest problems the Camanche girls basketball team has faced this season is the inability to score early. That problem was another thorn for the Indians, who lost 45-37 to Bellevue on Friday night.

The Indians scored just six points in the first quarter. Libby Schnoor put up the lone field goal (and a free throw) in the quarter, while Julia Moore scored the remaining three points from the free-throw line.

"We didn't make enough shots and didn't give ourselves very many chances tonight," Indians coach Danny Vogel said. "We had chances and good looks tonight; we just didn't finish them."

On the flipside, Camanche allowed 17 points in the first quarter to the Comets.

"Our girls weren't very reactive in the first quarter, but after that, we did play better after that, but it was too late," Vogel said.

The second quarter became low-scoring and defensive, but the Indians ended up scoring more than Bellevue, 9-6.

Vogel was quick to point out the Indians, ranked No. 13 this week by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, had a tough River Valley battle with the Comets.

"There's nothing wrong with the Comets," Vogel said. "It's not like we lost to a bad team. I think what hurt us the most tonight was that we did not adjust to their box-and-one defense."

The Indians hadn't seen much of that type of defense this season, but Vogel wasn't surprised Bellevue used the box-and-one and triangle-and-two defenses as the Comets were trying to take away Kylie Vogel's ability to score.

"I anticipated it and thought they might use it," coach Vogel said. "We've seen it this season, and we should have been prepared for it. It forces other people to step up and make shots and take control."

Vogel scored seven points for the Indians, while the leading scorer was Jordan Nissen with 10 points. Moore and Schnoor each had eight points.

Meanwhile, for the Comets, Ali Reeg had a game-high 20 points, while Jackie Kremer followed up by scoring eight points.

Camanche hosts West Liberty, whose only win of the season came against Bellevue on Jan. 20, on Tuesday.
