A-9 girls basketball: Cambridge, Keswick in the final

ST. PETERSBURG — Earlier in the season, Cambridge fell to Lakeside Christian. In Thursday's A-9 district semifinal, the scoring trio of Susan Bealor, Rachael Bode and Chachere Moore propelled the Lancers to a 52-43 victory.

"They knew we had to get scoring from different positions," Lancers coach John Wilson said. "They were focused and ready to do their jobs.

Bealor, who scored 14 points, did most of her damage in the first quarter, scoring 10 as the Lancers took an 18-11 lead. The Lions stayed close behind the offense of Hannah Ray, Charity Henry and Kaitlyn Lawrence.

The Lions attacked the Lancers' pressure and closed the gap to 28-24 at halftime. Moore scored six quick points for the Lancers out of halftime and Bode added eight more as Cambridge outscored Lakeside 16-7.

"They're a good team," Lions coach Brooke Sibert said. "They hit a lot of great shots and we didn't execute."

In the fourth quarter the Lions tried a comeback but the foul shooting of the Lancers, who finished 11-of-11, thwarted any opportunity.

"To play a total team game like this means a lot," Wilson said. "Our role players did well on defense and rebounding. I appreciate that."

Bode led the Lancers with 22 points, six assists and six steals. Moore scored 14 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.

Sarah Klecvka scored 13 points and grabbed six rebounds for the Lions. Kaitlyn Lawrence scored nine and Hannah Ray added seven.
