With five players scoring 10 or more points, the Washington Lady Jays halted “the little team that could” Friday night in the Peoples Bank Holiday Classic consolation game.

Washington (5-2) defeated Cuba (3-4) for the hardware in Sullivan, 67-52.

“I was very proud of our team for coming away with two wins in this tournament this week,” said Washington Head Coach Adam Fischer. “We started the tournament on the wrong side of the win column, but we fought to get two wins out of it. Cuba is a well-coached team that plays incredibly hard and all the girls know their roles on the floor.”

The game was a contrast between the programs. Washington had height and depth. Cuba, the eighth seed, was smaller and only dug into the bench after being hit with four problems.

Still, it proved to be an entertaining contest with Washington holding on for the victory.

The Lady Jays led 17-14 after one quarter and 29-22 at the half. Cuba cut it to 44-39 after three quarters.

Washington used strong outside shooting to stay ahead. The Lady Jays drained 12 three-point baskets in the contest.

“We were able to make a lot of shots this evening, including 12 threes, and get the ball to the basket when needed,” Fischer said.

Washington’s two all-tournament team selections led the way with 17 points apiece.

Sophomore Paige Carpenter, a first-team selection, added two steals and one assist to her 17 points. She hit three three-point baskets and was 6-8 from the free-throw line.

Senior Courtney Kedroski was on the second team, her second consecutive year of making the all-tournament team in Sullivan. She also had five assists, three rebounds and one steal in the game. She hit four three-point baskets and went 3-4 from the free-throw line.

Senior Megan Bauche scored 11 points while sinking all three of her shots from beyond the arc. She also had four rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Senior Rachel Kackley and freshman Kyra Hardesty scored 10 points apiece and played key roles in other areas.

Kackley also hauled down 10 rebounds to lead Washington in that category.

“Rachel had a great game shooting 4-4 from the field along with her 10 rebounds,” Fischer said.

Hardesty added seven assists, two steals and one rebound. She hit two three-point shots.

“Our guards, Carpenter, Bauche, Kedroski and Hardesty, made a combined 12 threes on only 22 attempts,” Fischer said. “We had 16 assists as a team, which tells me we really shared the ball well all night. We were also able to get to the free-throw line tonight and make them (15-20). Overall, we had a good showing at the tournament.”

Junior Megan Freitag added two points to go with three rebounds.

Freshman Emma Boehmer also played.

Cuba was led by sophomore Hannah Mitchell, who scored 21 points while hitting two of Cuba’s three-point baskets. She also went 5-6 from the free-throw line and added four assists and two rebounds.

Junior Shelby Whitaker, who made the all-tournament second team, recorded a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds to go with an assist and a blocked shot. She hit four of six free-throw chances.

Sophomore Aurora Pfeiffer came off the bench to score six points with two steals, one assist and one rebound before fouling out.

Sophomore Taylor Williams scored five points and added five rebounds.

Sophomore Alexis Price and senior McKenzie Derennaux each scored four points.

Also playing for Cuba was Jessica Payne, who recorded one rebound.
