Albright picks fine time to shine for Comets

prep roundup

CENTRAL POINT ' Aundrea Albright picked an opportune time to record her only field goal Saturday in a girls nonconference basketball game.

The 6-foot-2 sophomore scored with three seconds to play to help Crater overcome a frigid shooting night and a late deficit for a 36-34 victory over Marshfield.

The Comets (3-1) shot just 14 of 62 and were 1-for-5 from the foul line.

We had a lot of shots, we just couldn't make anything, said Crater coach David Heard. I'm a little disappointed that we played so poorly in our home opener.

Despite holding Marshfield to three second-half field goals, including one in the fourth quarter, Crater trailed by nine points with four minutes to play.

The Comets, however, slowly chipped away at the deficit and senior Kelsey Holderness capped the rally with a 3-pointer to move Crater ahead with 1:30 to go.

— The Pirates tied the game at 34-all with a free throw but Crater held for the final shot and Albright delivered.

Getting a win like that is going to be beneficial, said Heard. I think we'll learn more from a game like this. We had to work for everything.

Holderness led the Comets with 11 points, while Emily Brookins had eight of Crater's 13 assists to go with seven rebounds.

The Comets had 18 offensive rebounds and pestered the Pirates' offense with nine steals.

Heather Porter, a 6-2 post, scored Marshfield's first eight points and finished with 11.
