Cascade defense stymies Camanche

CAMANCHE — By the time Camanche figured out a successful way to attack Cascade’s defense, it was too late.

Held to six points in the first half Tuesday, the Indians made things interesting after intermission but saw their eight-game winning streak end with a 29-24 loss to the Cougars, who are rated second in the Iowa Class 2A state girls basketball rankings. Camanche is No. 9 in 3A.

Cascade implemented an impenetrable defense early, forcing a 10-second backcourt violation off the opening tip-off. Even when the Indians (10-3) broke the Cascade press, they had trouble in their half-court offense.

Camanche’s lone score in the first quarter was a turnaround jumper by Julia Moore on the block. By that time, Cascade already had a lead it didn’t lose.

Abby Hunt’s 3-point basket opened the scoring at the 5:45 mark of the first quarter, and Abbey Meyer turned a long defensive rebound into a layup 23 seconds later for a 5-0 lead.

Cascade built its lead to 10-2 after one quarter and 20-6 at the half. Moore had all six Camanche points. Camanche outscored Cascade 11-6 in the third quarter and 7-3 in the fourth.

Oberman leads way

CLARENCE — Addie Oberman scored 20 points and Alyssa Roth added 12 to lead Northeast past North Cedar 52-38 in the River Valley Conference.

Oberman had 12 at the half while Roth had 10 in leading the Rebels to a 32-17 lead.

Sabers edged

DEWITT — Central DeWitt rallied from a 10-point deficit to pull even, but Anamosa scored the lone points the final minute to pull out a 40-38 victory Tuesday in WaMaC Conference girls basketball.

Amanda Brainerd keyed the comeback. She finished with 26 points for the Sabers, scoring all but four of their second-half points.

Anamosa led 19-17 at the half and outscored DeWitt 13-5 in the third quarter. The Sabers closed within 36-32 on a 3-point basket by Kali Roling midway through the final period but trailed 38-32 with four minutes left.
