The Inter-City girls’ basketball team bounced back from a tough loss earlier in the week with a 46-38 victory over Plymouth Christian.

“The girls were definitely up for this game after a 31-point drubbing the last time we played them,” said IC coach Nathan Chatfield. “I’m also pretty sure we haven’t beaten this team in five years.”

After a poor start when the Chargers fell behind 7-0, things turned around quickly.

“Timely shooting from Kayla Thoune (16 points) and Karalynn Goering (15) really helped and the work inside from Alyssa Saenz (nine) and Courtney Hunter (two) really turned the momentum in our favor,” Chatfield said.

“We came up against a really good basketball team who just didn’t have their best night. I fully expect an absolute battle when we see them in districts.”

Inter-City improved to 8-9 overall and 5-6 in the conference.

The Chargers lost 61-53 to Novi Franklin Park on Tuesday.

“(That’s) a good Franklin Road team and when they shoot like that not many teams will beat them,” Chatfield said. “We played our best offensive game of the year led by Kayla Thoune’s 20 points, but we struggled to get stops in the second half.

“I told the girls after the game that we didn’t lose that game, they just beat us. We played well, but they played great.”

Alyssa Saenz continued her strong play with 13 points for the Chargers.



Cabrini

The Cabrini Monarchs only had one game last week and it wasn’t much of a game as Cabrini defeated Bloomfield Hills Sacred Heart 58-15.

Cabrini led 15-2 after the first quarter.

“The difference in the game was our ability to run the floor for easy transition baskets along with getting several opportunities and scores off the offensive glass where we led the margin 21-8 for the game,” said Cabrini coach Mike Rozanski. “We also did a nice job of limiting All-Catholic player Monika Ferris’ touches and keeping her to five points.”

Carlee Alley had 11 points; Samantha Holley scored nine; Olivia Mocnik had eight points and seven rebounds; and Caitlyn Lefebrve had seven points and six boards for Cabrini.
