Defense rules the court as Farragut girls romp past Lady Bobcats 58-19

The Farragut Lady Admirals opened its 2004-05 high school basketball season with a decisive 58-19 victory over the Central Bobcats (0-1) on Monday, Nov. 15, in Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium at FHS.

Farragut guard Ashley Tipton, named Lady Ads’ player of the week by head coach Mike Driver, led FHS by scoring nine points and grabbing five rebounds.

The Lady Ads gained the momentum early and never let go as its lead gradually increased the entire game, taking a comfortable 29-11 advantage into the half and doubling it in the second half.

The FHS defense was strong, preventing any sort of Central comeback attempt. “We were a little inconsistent, but I think we did a really good job,” FHS senior post Natalie Munday said. “It’s a good confidence builder.”

Munday finished with eight points, including a 3-pointer in the victory.

“I saw a lot of good things out there, our pressure defense played well and we looked good with our trap at times,” Driver said. “I thought we played pretty well, but we’ve still got a lot of work to do.”

Momentum was a key factor for the Lady Ads throughout this game.

Farragut’s offense spread the ball around efficiently, allowing 10 of the team’s 11 players to contribute points in the victory.

Kara Beth Beverly scored nine points and summed up the blowout by hitting a 3-pointer with no time remaining in regulation.

Catelyn Dake scored eight, while Rachel Draper and Beth Raby each contributed six points apiece for FHS.

The Lady Ads travel to Knoxville Catholic tonight (Thursday). Opening tip-off is approximately 6:30 p.m.
