Erath and Delcambre faced off in game four on Monday, with the Lady Bobcats taking out the short-handed Lady Panthers 63-41.
Delcambre head coach Lisa Richard said that, despite Delcambre’s having eight players total on the team, she would make no excuses.
“It’s a concern,” said Richard of the light numbers. “But, it’s all we’re going to have all year... We’re going to get out there and fight every game.”
Finally, the NV Lady Pats won a 48-47 thriller over Comeaux in the final game of the evening, setting up an Erath – NV clash Tuesday night.
The Lady Pats led 24-14 at the half and built a 34-18 lead in the third before allowing the Lady Spartans to see daylight.
Comeaux eventually took a slight lead late in the fourth before NV rallied to retake the lead and get the win.
NV head coach Phillip Freeman said his club’s inexperience showed in allowing Comeaux back in the game.
“It was a brilliiant first half,” said Freeman. “It was a great third quarter too... It is what it is. Somebody has to step up.”
