BV girls dominate Lincoln

Tuesday, December 28, 2021

The Berryville Lady Bobcats have played well at times this season, such as in a 54-25 victory over Lincoln on Tuesday, Dec. 21, at Bobcat Arena.

Junior guard Hannah Youngblood scored 17 points and senior forward Faith Kelley added 15 points for the Lady Bobcats, who led 37-16 at halftime.

Youngblood made four three-pointers and scored 13 points in the first quarter as the Lady Bobcats jumped out to a 23-8 lead. Kelley scored eight points in the second quarter. Nine players had at least two points for Berryville.

The win came the day after a 59-45 home loss to Kingston.

“We played a little better Tuesday. We played with a lot more effort and energy and made shots,” Berryville coach Daniel Cornelison said. “That makes a difference. It was a good way to go into the holiday break.”

Cornelison said playing well night in and night out is his goal for the Lady Bobcats.

“We have nights where we look really good,” he said. “It’s just trying to be consistent. We struggle with the consistency. I think once we get into the second half of the season, hopefully that will improve and we can step on the floor and be able to compete at a high level every night.”

Berryville will be at home this week for the CS Bank Holiday Hoops Tournament. The Lady Bobcats are scheduled to play Hamburg at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

“The teams they have coming in on the girls side are solid,” Cornelison said. “We’re going to have to play every night. We’re looking forward to it.”
