COVINGTON, Ind. — In last year’s Bi-County Tournament semifinals, Attica won a tight 49-48 game over Seeger and went on to win their fourth Bi-County title.
In Saturday’s Bi-County Championship game, the Red Ramblers (11-0) left no doubts this year as they had a dominant effort from start to finish and got to cut down the nets with a 51-31 victory over the Patriots to grab its second straight title and fifth overall.
The defensive intensity from Attica was very good from the start. ... It was a big key to holding Seeger down and with every shot contested; the Lady Ramblers only allowed the Lady Patriots 31 points and 26 percent shooting from the floor.
Seeger’s offense struggled all night against Attica’s defense and the Lady Patriots seemed unsure at times on the offensive end and was frustrated.
“We try to get our defensive pressure going early and get some easy quick buckets to make sure we can get a flow on the offensive side, but we pride ourselves on our defense and it was a very good defensive game tonight,” Attica coach Matt Harmeson said.
Kaley Sosnowski came off the bench again to give her team a big lift and that was evident with her first play.
She got a steal and breakaway lay-up to give the Lady Ramblers an eight-point lead and put the Lady Patriots on their heels.
Sosnowski (16 points and 6 steals) was named MVP as she led the Lady Ramblers attack and offense and helped them continue their defensive dominance in this tournament.
“I think our defense improved tonight and I have been working on my shooting and I hit my shots tonight,” Sosnowski said.
As the Lady Ramblers continued their unselfish play and aggressive defense, the lead swelled to 17 points in the second quarter.
