No. 7 Logan tops Jeff

Berries win big but aren't satisfied with performance


Logan opened the fourth with a 10-0 run. Katrina Neuendorf started the run after drawing a foul chasing down a loose ball and hitting both free throws in the one-and-bonus.

Jennings then got going again with a layup on a fastbreak after being shut out in the third quarter. The Blonde-Haired, Blue-Eyed Assassin then connected from the volleyball line on a shot from about 35 feet and then scored on a traditional three-point play to give the Berries a 60-34 lead with 5:50 remaining. After two free throws and another 3-pointer, her steal and layup with 2:00 left gave her a 15-point fourth quarter and the Berries a 70-43 lead, their biggest of the game.

“We knew she was good coming in. We knew we weren’t going to stop her,” Baker said. “We were just trying to make it difficult for her. I think we did, she’s just that good of a player.”

The Berries did a much better job on the boards in the second half, tying the Bronchos 24-24 for a 51-33 final deficit. They won the turnover battle 18-7 for the game, outscored the Bronchos 16-9 on the foul line and held them to 1 of 14 shooting beyond the arc (7.1 percent) while connecting on 6 of 17 themselves (35.3 percent).

“That’s what we asked the girls to do is get on the boards in the second half,” Logan coach Jerry Hoover said.

Nakeya Penny had 16 points in the win and collected all four of her rebounds in the second half. Maddie Dalton had six points on 2 of 5 shooting from 3. Bullard chipped in four points, six boards and two blocks and Kennedy Curl added four points.

Julia Randolph led the Bronchos with 10 points and 14 rebounds. Kaylee Simms had nine points, Rylie Pittard scored seven and Stephanie Harris and Carlie Hinkle each added six.

“Their guards are quick. They’re not an 0-8 team,” Jennings said. “They’re going to get wins here. They’re a good team, they just have to play a complete game.”
