  • CENTRAL POINT — After absorbing a 25-point road loss to Roseburg earlier in the season, Crater girls basketball coach David Heard tried a different approach Tuesday.
    For the first time this season, the Comets used a man-to-man defense and the switch paid dividends.
    Destiny Fahndrich did a lock-down job on Roseburg star Pele Gianotti and Becca Heard found her shooting touch as the Comets came away with a 44-36 Southern Oregon Hybrid home victory.
    "I felt they are too good of shooters from the outside," said Heard about his change in strategy. "Our defense was as good as we've been all year. Our energy level was high and we communicated great."
    Fahndrich, a 5-foot-8 sophomore post, held the 5-11 Gianotti scoreless in the first half as the Comets (15-5, 4-4 SOH) took a 16-12 lead at intermission.
    Gianotti is bound for Cal-Davis on a basketball scholarship next year.
    "Fahndrich did an amazing job on Gianotti," said Heard. "Destiny can match Gianotti's physicality and Tess Noles came off the bench to help defensively also."
    In addition to her defensive effort, Fahndrich contributed seven rebounds, four steals and made four key free throws in the fourth quarter.
    Senior guard Becca Heard and Courtney Setzer, a junior post, both paced Crater with 14 points. Becca Heard was 4 of 5 from the field, made all five free throws and had five steals.
    Fiona Johnson scored 13 points to lead Roseburg (8-10, 4-3).
    "Once we got a lead we made them come out and guard us and did some motion stuff and that allowed us to get to the basket," said Heard. "It was our best win of the year."
