Comets fall short against Central Catholic in Laker Shootout

LAKE OSWEGO ' Time wasn't on Crater's side Saturday in the adidas-Laker Interstate Shootout.

Down 60-59, Crater's Erin Kinney launched a desperation shot from half-court at the final buzzer and was fouled, said Comets coach Scott Dippel.

In a discussion with a referee afterward, Dippel said, the official admitted there was a foul, but it was waved off because it came after the shot was away and the buzzer sounded.

Dippel's contention was that the foul was part of the play and should have been enforced.

It was a great game, and both me and Sandy (Dickerson, the Rams' coach) didn't want it to end that way ' on both calls, said Dippel, referring to a foul that allowed Central Catholic to take the lead moments earlier.

The Rams' Kate Benz was fouled by Dani Montgomery with 2.4 seconds left and made one free throw.

The ball was then inbounded to Kinney. She took one dribble and shot as Annie McIntyre defended.

The loss sends the Comets (5-4) into a Monday matchup against Sheldon, which will be the third ranked team Crater has played here in four games.

Sheldon, a 40-26 loser to Roseburg Saturday, is No. 4 in the Oregon coaches poll. Central Catholic is fifth, and Jesuit, which beat Crater 68-45, is third.

This was a seesaw game befitting two teams familiar with one another. Crater was 25-3 last year, and Central Catholic was responsible for two of the losses.

The Comets trailed by as many as eight points in the fourth quarter and by six points in each of the second and third periods.

They rallied each time and led by six in the third.

It was momentum change after momentum change, said Dippel. It was a great game to watch.

Montgomery, who led Crater with 16 points and 11 rebounds, made a turnaround jumper with 12 seconds to play to forge a 59-all tie.

But the Rams, who made nine of their final 10 free throws, could not be overtaken.

Point guard Whitney Black played a fine floor game for Crater, with 13 points, seven rebounds, three assists and a steal. Kinney added 13 points and Katie Robertson 10.
