Lady Brahmas downed in bi-district game
Stockdale’s Kat Wehmeyer (10) watches a free throw during the Lady Brahmas’ first-round playoff loss to Karnes City.
Members of the Stockdale Lady Brahma basketball team were excited about making the playoffs this season, but after falling to the Lady Badgers of Karnes City Feb. 15 by the score of 31-19, their season has officially ended.
Stockdale qualified for postseason play by finishing third in District 29-2A, just behind the teams from Marion and Luling. The Lady Brahmas had a district record of 8-4, and were hoping to add a bi-district win to their season going into last Tuesday night’s game.
The Lady Badgers came out with a pair of quick baskets to start the game off, and then dropped in a free throw for an early 5-0 lead. Stockdale’s Erika Donsbach then put the Lady Brahmas on the board with a basket to make it 5-2.
The score stayed low throughout the first period, and the Lady Brahmas found themselves trailing 9-3 at the end of the first period. Stockdale trailed by as much as 16-3 in the second period, but put together a little run to end up at 18-8 at the break.
The Stockdale defense did a good job containing Karnes City, and pulled down a number of big defensive rebounds in the half. Unfortunately for the Lady Brahmas, it appeared as though they couldn’t “buy a basket” in the half, as most shots were off the mark. The Lady Badgers should be credited with a good defensive effort as well, as they forced a number of Stockdale turnovers, and kept heavy pressure on the Lady Brahmas, forcing them to take hurried shots.
Donsbach scored the first point of the second half as she dropped in a shot from the charity stripe, and added another two free throws late in the third. Lashay Castro scored the Lady Brahmas’ final basket of the period, and Stockdale trailed 26-13 at the end of the third.
Stockdale hit a free throw to start things in the fourth, and followed that up with a couple of much-needed baskets. The Lady Brahmas fought until the very end, but never could get back into the game. Karnes City was held to just 5 points in the final period of play, all of which were off free throws, but it was still more than enough to secure the win by the final score of 31-19.
Castro led the Lady Brahmas with 6 points, followed closely by Donsbach with 5. Andye Romero, Roxanne Bischak, Sarah Holguin, and Jewls Templeton each scored 2 points for Stockdale.
