2A-10 district basketball: Brooks-DeBartolo wins by one; Indian Rocks Christian romps

CLEARWATER — Brooks-DeBartolo (19-5) had to overcome quite a bit of adversity in its Class 2A, District 10 55-54 semifinal win over Calvary Christian Friday.

The Phoenix lost its most effective post player, Tatiana Manuel (16 points), to an ankle injury late in the third quarter. Then Keyann Powell, the go-to player down the stretch who also had 16 points, fouled out.

Calvary made several great defensive stands in the first half and the teams went into the locker room tied at 26-all. In the third quarter Brooks-DeBartolo started to pull away, then the injury and foul trouble hit.

Calvary made a furious run and almost pulled it out as Symone Shinton hit the front end of two shots at the free-throw line.

"We had to fight to win the game and we did not defend well, along with not hitting our free throws," Phoenix coach Dexter Bryant said.

In the nightcap, Indian Rocks Christian easily defeated Tampa Prep 75-31. Tori Trador and Rachel Burnett each scored 19, Kristen Scholl had 15 points, and Jessica Logemann chipped in 10 points and 15 assists.

"We are head and shoulders above everyone in our district and we wanted to play hard and we went to the bench to give our young underclassmen some valuable playing time," Golden Eagles coach Phil Farver said.
