Cornelison says consistency is key
After a 37-35 victory over the Omaha Lady Eagles, Berryville Lady Bobcat coach Daniel Cornelison said his team must become more consistent.
"We kind of controlled the game the whole way through. It's just, we are young," Cornelison said. "It's going to be a common theme until we figure out what we can and can't do. We make young mistakes and when you're young you make those. Sometimes they cost you and sometimes they don't. Tonight we got lucky. It is what is. It wasn't pretty, but a win is a win and we will take all of them we can get."
Thanks to 12 first-quarter points by Hannah Morrell, the Lady Bobcats led 15-6 at the end of the first quarter. The Lady Eagles closed the gap to 23-20 at halftime.
"We are just going to have to get more time on the floor," Cornelison said. "Time in practice, time in games. The more reps we get, the better we will be. We have to learn from our mistakes and learn from what we do right."
Berryville led 32-29 heading into the fourth quarter and two late free throws by Morrell ended any hopes for Omaha.
"Hannah had a good game," Cornelison said.
Berryville travels to Omaha to participate in the Omaha Border Classic on Saturday. The Lady Bobcats play Lead Hill at 2 p.m.
