Despite Saturday’s 49-28 loss to Taylor Truman on Saturday, the Inter-City girls’ basketball team is playing well heading into the middle of the schedule.

Inter-City went 2-1 last week to improve to 5-6 on the season.

The week began last Tuesday with a 38-36 win over Baptist Park.

“This was a nice win for us to get,” said Inter-City Coach Nathan Chatfield. “After dropping behind early, the girls showed great heart and never panicked. When the game was really tight in the fourth quarter, execution and free-throw shooting really paid off for us.”

Alyssa Saenz led Inter-City with 13 points. Kayla Thoune had nine points and Arie Sandoval played her best game of the year with eight points.

The Chargers rolled over Lutheran Northwest 33-27 on Thursday.

“Northwest’s good zone defense and some poor decision making really caused us some problems, but again the girls were able to show good composure and squeak out a nice win,” Chatfield said. “Arie (Sandoval) is really starting to play well for us at the right time.”

Sandoval had nine points, including the key free throws in the fourth quarter that sealed the win.

Saenz had eight points and Karalynn Goering scored seven.


After starting the week with a nice road win over Livonia Ladywood, Cabrini lost to first-place Macomb Lutheran North 45-23.

“Once again we struggled offensively to score, being down 8-4 after one, 24-11 at half,” said Coach Mike Rozanski. “In the second half, their All-Catholic performer Jackie Schwark hit two early threes (seven for the game) and we couldn't recover. Defensively we played solid.

“North is a very patient team with exceptional ball movement and three college-level players who are difficult to defend. They scored a few buckets late but we should have held them to under 40 which is our goal for most games.”

Samantha Holley led Cabrini with 10 points and Amber Steelman had six points.

Last Tuesday, Cabrini bounced Ladywood 27-23.

The Monarchs opened up on a 9-0 run to lead 9-2 at the end of one.

“We shot the ball poorly in the first quarter. We should have been up by even more,” Rozanski said.

Cabrini led 14-2 at halftime.

The Monarchs continued to struggle on the offensive end in the second half. Carlee Alley picked up the slack, hitting three triples to help Cabrini open up a 22-9 third-quarter lead.

“We controlled most of the game,” Rozanski said. “Ladywood hit four threes in the fourth and cut the game down to the final.”

Alley led the Monarchs with 13 points. Catherine Diroff had six points and Kasey Jodway had four points and nine rebounds.
