Kings motor to finish

Late run pushes Cass girls past Taylor

With the game tied at 24-24 with 1:58 to play, Cass’ Macie Maupin connected on a runner in the lane before knocking down a 3-pointer, sparking a Kings 10-0 run to close out the game, lifting the visitors to a 34-24 victory over host Taylor in Saturday Mid-Indiana Conference girls basketball action.

The Titans fell to 2-8 overall and 1-3 in MIC play with the loss. Taylor played without leading scorer and rebounder Brie Boehler, who is on the mend from surgery, and was down another player due to a funeral.

“The last 1:58 was the difference in the game,” Taylor coach Dennis Bentzler said. “We were down a couple players, but we’re proud of the six or seven girls who played. We’re not going to cry at all and will keep going about our business. I thought the kids played extremely hard and put us in a position, but Maupin took over and they were able to finish.”

The squads were tied at 12-12 at the half before Cass (5-5, 2-0 MIC) took a 19-17 lead into the fourth quarter.

Maupin led the Kings with 12 points and five rebounds. Savannah Thompson added 10 points in the win, while Olivia Collins added seven points and five boards.

Kaitlynn Good paced the Titans with seven points and 10 rebounds. Savannah Delgado added seven points as well.

“Defensively in particular, we’re starting to get better and figure things out,” Bentzler said. “We have to get healthy with five tough games upcoming, including a Western Boone team that’s undefeated [10-0] and ranked [No. 8 in 3A), as well as the county tourney. We’ll keep working to get better, but I’m extremely proud of our effort against Cass. I keep telling the kids we have to keep fighting and clawing and getting back up. We’re still young and our time is coming, so we’ll keep doing the right things, and I believe we’re doing that.”

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
