March 8, 2007 — In a game that was not as close as the final score would indicate, the Central High School Lady Caribs crushed the Country Day School Lady Tigers, 51-30, Wednesday afternoon in the Tigers Den on the Country Day Campus.
Central High started fast and never looked back, outscoring the Lady Tigers 21-14 in the first quarter, led by seven points from Sherise Joseph. From there the rout was on.
The second quarter was a forgettable one for the Lady Tigers as Central really tightened the defensive screws in that period en route to shutting the Tigers out 10-0 for a 31-14 halftime lead.
The third quarter wasn't much better for the Tigers as they had a lot of trouble solving the Caribs' press. They only managed one basket in the period and were outscored 16-2 to trail 41-16 after three quarters.
Lady Caribs Coach Donald Bough called off the dogs the rest of the way, and the Lady Tigers were able to score more freely in the fourth with the game well out of hand. Led by No. 1 player Cheynae Rogers seven points in the fourth quarter, they made the final score a slightly more respectable 51-30.
Ashley George led Centrals attack with 17, and Shawna Moving chipped in with 10. The Lady Tigers were led by Rogers, who finished with nine.
