The Bancroft-Rosalie Girls Basketball Team lost 55-48 to West Point-Beemer at Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family in the first round of the East Husker Conference Tournament last Friday night before winning 43-38 over Tekamah-Herman at home in a consolation game Monday night.

The Cadets led the Panthers 13-10 after the 1st quarter. Both teams scored 16 points in the 2nd quarter, and West Point-Beemer held a 29-26 halftime advantage.

The Cadets won the 3rd quarter 9-7 to extend their lead to 38-33 at the end of three.

West Point-Beemer won the 4th quarter 17-15.

Makenna James had 15 points and 8 rebounds while Samryn Dick and Addison James notched 11 and 10 points, respectively.

The Panthers led the Tigers 12-10 after the first quarter, and outscored the Tigers 14-6 in the 2nd quarter to take a 26-16 lead into the locker room.

Tekamah-Herman won the 3rd quarter 12-11 to make it a 37-28 game at the end of three.

The Tigers won the 4th quarter 10-6.

Makenna James had 12 points while McKenzie Murphy totaled 11. Treylynn Sheridan notched 8 points and 8 rebounds while Isabella Bonneau posted 11 rebounds.

Bancroft-Rosalie (10-9) wraps up the regular season at home on Friday against Logan View/Scribner-Snyder (8-12).

The Raiders won 35-32 at Syracuse on a buzzer-beater on Saturday.

It’s going to be an interesting and intriguing game for sure.

This one should be a dandy and could go either way.

Lots of talent and experience in this one.

I feel like this is a big one for both teams heading into Sub-District Play the following week.

It’s a 50/50 toss up game if you think about it, and winning it would certainly give whoever wins a mental edge and advantage knowing they can win late in the season against a team that is basically as even and equal as them.

Often times these games can come down to 1 or 2 things so it’s important for Bancroft-Rosalie to do everything they can to win.

It’s also the last time these Seniors will play a regular season game on their home floor so the Panthers have to make it count and play their hearts out.
