Rock Bridge rolls past Lady Jays

February 28th, 2013 in News

COLUMBIA - The Rock Bridge Lady Bruins hit seven 3-pointers to jump out to a 27-0 lead after one quarter Thursday night and cruised to a 63-11 victory against the Jefferson City Lady Jays in the semifinals of the Class 5 District 9 Tournament at Hickman High School.

The Lady Jays got on the scoreboard with a little less than three minutes to go in the half and trailed 37-4 at intermission. Rock Bridge took a 54-6 advantage into the final period.

"They shot the ball extremely well," Lady Jays coach Shane Meyer said. "When they play well on the outside as well they can play on the inside, they're going to be a handful for anybody."

Top-seeded Rock Bridge (20-5), which hit 10 3-pointers in the game, advances to Saturday's championship game against Hickman. The second-seeded Kewpies (22-4) defeated Camdenton 67-48 in the second semifinal Thursday.

Jefferson City ends its season at 3-24.

"We have an opportunity to look at everything in the program and see what we're doing," Meyer said. "We're going to step back and look at the big picture maybe more than in years past and look for new ideas."

Kezia Martin had seven points to lead Jefferson City.
