Area Prep Basketball Report for Wednesday, Nov. 18

Belle Chasse has enjoyed an impressive start to its season.

The Cardinals opened with a very solid 49-47 road win over an impressive Grace King squad Monday.

On Tuesday, the Cardinals again hit the road and came away with a victory, defeating Thomas Jefferson 56-50.

Belle Chasse led 13-11 after one quarter and grew the lead to 32-23 at halftime. It was 43-34 after three quarters and the Cardinals held off the Jaguars in the fourth quarter for the victory.

Senior Ty’rek Williams led Belle Chasse with 18 points, senior Brendon Hunter had 14 points and junior Stone Entrekin finished with 10 points.

Belle Chasse returns to action next Monday at Newman at 1 p.m. while Thomas Jefferson (0-1) will host Sarah Reed Friday at 5:30 p.m.

In Covington, St. Paul’s opened at home with a solid 51-41 victory over Edna Karr.

The Wolves did it with a strong transition game, scoring 24 of their 51 points in that fashion.

St. Paul’s took an 11-4 lead after one quarter before leading 23-19 at halftime. The Cougars rallied to tie the score 34-34 going to the fourth quarter, which the Wolves dominated to take the win.

Zach Fenn topped the Wolves with 15 points while Evan Seichshnaydre finished with 14 points. Mister Simmons led the Cougars with 10 points while Reynaud Shields had eight points.

Karr was plagued by 24 turnovers while the Wolves won the battle of the boards 31-29.

St. Paul’s coach Stephen Dale was pleased with the way his team responded to adversity.

“It felt a little bit like our first summer league game as much as we have been able to practice,” Dale said. “There has definitely been a cost to losing team camps, summer league games and a regular preseason. Our guys battled and executed in the fourth quarter when we were able to pull away. After they turned up the pressure on us, we kept our poise and hit our free throws in the fourth quarter.”

Both teams return to action Thursday. St. Paul’s is on the road at Parkview Baptist at 6:30 p.m. while Karr travels to John Ehret, also at 6:30 p.m.
