A-9 girls basketball: Keswick's early lead vanishes but Crusaders hold off Cambridge

ST. PETERSBURG — Keswick Christian came out Friday with defensive intensity and held on 47-42 against Cambridge in the A-9 district final.

The Crusaders took a 16-6 lead in the first quarter as senior Tori Hale lead the way with pinpoint shooting. In the second quarter Hale continued with her torrid shooting, making three 3-pointers.

Keswick cruised to the locker room with a 13-point lead.

Trailing 31-18 at the beginning of the second half, Cambridge started to slowly creep back into the game.

Junior Rachael Bode and senior Chachere Moore caught fire and the Lancers were down only eight at the end of the third quarter. Bode hit a jump shot to put Cambridge ahead for the first time 43-42.

"We have had a hard time putting teams away all season," Keswick coach Karrmayne King said.

But with the game winding down, Hale scored on a layup to ice the victory followed by two free throws.

Keswick was led by Hale with 18 points and five rebounds and Cassie Foster scored 14. Sarah Trill added nine points, nine rebounds and four blocks.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.
