Yoemen use 25-point 4th to get by Hearne

For a majority of Tuesday’s 20-3A opener, things did not look good for the home team. Cameron had only scored four points in the first quarter and trailed by 5 at the half. The Yoemen never wavered, cutting the Hearne lead to just 1 after three before exploding for 25 points in the fourth to seal the victory, 61-57.

 

Youth came through in a big way for Coach Burns’ squad on this night. While veterans LaRondre Booze and Keanu McCarter were held to quite nights with just 1 bucket a piece, sophomores Kobe Young and Calvin Stewart were there to pick up the slack, combining for 30 of Cameron’s 61 points on the evening.

 

“We knew we were going to be young and we were going to have to depend on some youth,” said Yoe coach Nicholas Burns. “We have quite a few guys that did not even play varsity ball last year and now they have been thrust into the spotlight. Calvin, Kobe and Nico all stepped up.”

Ladies struggle early, pick it up late to deny Hearne

Hearne has not won a 20-3A district ball game in some time. They did pretty much everything in their power to try and change that on Tuesday in a clash with Cameron from Yoe Gym. Hearne led the Lady Yoe 20-18 at the half and only trailed by 2 at the end of three before Cameron awoke and put the foot on the accelerator in the fourth for a 41-31 win.

 

“Hearne had just lost their best player last week and they came in here and played like they wanted it,” said Lady Yoe coach Corey Cunningham following the game. “We weren’t quite ready for their physicality and it caught us off guard. It was back and forth the first three quarters and then in the fourth we started converting some of those turnovers into points.”

Lady Yoe stay competitive early with #2 Academy

Cameron knew it was going to be somewhat of an uphill battle in the 20-3A opener on Tuesday with number two Little River Academy traveling to town. The Lady Bees beat the Lady Yoe twice last season by an average of 45 points per contest, and the top five players were returning to help garner Academy a top 5 ranking. Cameron did not pull off the upset this go around, but strides were made in what was a much more competitive 55-30 loss.

 

Cameron (9-8/0-1) opened up to a 9-2 lead to begin the game and held a 14-11 advantage after the first quarter of play.

 

“I was really proud of how well we started the game,” said Lady Yoe coach Corey Cunningham. “We talked about how we needed to stay in the game as long as possible to build confidence and they did that. I think the key was handling Academy’s press. Last year, they scored in flurries because we could not handle it.”
