The Cedarville Lady Jackets were able to showcase their roster from top to bottom in their 95-42 thrashing over the Wilberforce Bulldogs on Saturday night.
Six players finished in double figures for the second time in three games, and all ten active players saw playing time in the game. Nine of the ten Lady Jackets put the ball in the basket at some point in the game.
Ellie Juengel came off the bench to lead the team in scoring. She dropped 16 points and shot 4-7 from behind the three-point line.
Kaitlyn Holm was a multi-faceted machine in the game, scoring 13 points, grabbing eight rebounds, and dishing out four assists.
The Bulldogs scored just four seconds into the game with a quick layup shortly after the tip-off.
From there, it was all Cedarville. The Lady Jackets took the lead with six minutes left in the first quarter, and never squandered it.
Holm helped carry Cedarville to a 29-4 advantage at the end of the first quarter, scoring seven points and grabbing five rebounds in the quarter.
The second belonged to the Lady Jackets yet again. They ended the half with a 54-16 lead. Breanne Watterworth scored six of her 14 points in the second quarter alone.
As the second half opened, the Lady Jackets’ reserves saw more playing time. Even with some less experienced players in, Cedarville was able to push the lead to 54 at its highest.
The Lady Jackets got a much-needed game in which they could rest their players. They just beat Ohio Christian in double-overtime two nights before.
Cedarville will enjoy an entire week off until their next game. On Saturday at 3:00 p.m., the Lady Jackets will take on the Indianapolis Greyhounds. The Greyhounds have a 5-3 record. Cedarville head coach Kari Hoffman said this will be one of the more important non-conference games that Cedarville will play this season.
