Drifters end season in the Region semi-finals

The Drifters 2010-2011 girls’ varsity basketball season may have fallen short of a District and Regional Championship, but it will always be remembered for posting 17 victories. Their final record of 8-2, 17-6 reflects the impact the team has had on the Northern Neck.

Most recently during the Regional semi-finals the Drifters fell short of fulfilling their quest by losing to West Point (19-3), 44-39. The Pointers were

able to sustain a lead late in the fourth quarter with key free-throws and a 3-pointer scored by Kiera Gaines in the remaining seconds to advance into the championship round against Sussex Central (16-2). Gaines would later lead all scorers with 21 points. Caneisha Fulcher led the Drifters with 10 points, while Jennay Shanklin added 8 points.

Sussex earned their way into the championship round after dispensing of Surry County 73-52. West Point would eventually win the Region A, Division 1 Championship by defeating Sussex 47-53. Sussex will play Luray on Friday, March 4, during the quarterfinals of the 2011 Division 1, VHSL State Championships, while West Point battles Riverheads on the following day. Both games will be held at the Siegel Center in Richmond.
Earlier in the week during the Region quarterfinals, the Drifters were faced with a challenge in the form of Franklin County. The Broncos were physical, tough and unafraid to take chances with the game on the line. However, the one common denominator that affected both teams was that they haven’t played against each other in the regular season — which made for an interesting scenario featuring finesse versus aggression.
In the first quarter after mounting a 10-5 lead, courtesy of clutch free throws from Caniesha Fulcher and Karley Inscoe, it appeared the Drifters offense might be in for a big game. Inscoe would later go on to lead all scores with 14 points, including three 3-pointers.

However, the Broncos valiantly fought back as Tiara Rogers pushed the ball up the gut of the Drifter defense at will. Rogers would later lead all Broncos scores with 22 points.

After the deficit was cut to 4 points, the Drifters countered with Carley Graves scoring two jumpers and a free throw, extending their lead to 30-23 at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Broncos mounted a sustained attack with a 3-pointer and a jumper from Victoria Barrett. The Drifters remained poised and calm as they let their defense, and the scoring of Danielle Galloway to crush any hopes of a Bronco comeback. The Drifters led 41-33 at the end of the quarter.

The Drifters began the final quarter with a 6 unanswered points to take a commanding 49-38 lead with 5:12 remaining in the game. The Broncos refusing to give up and fought back with baskets by Rogers and Aysa Lee to cut the Drifter lead to 49-42.

With less than a minute in a half in the game, the remaining Bronco 3-point desperation shots fell well short of their mark. The Drifters would record their 17th victory of the season as they won, 52-44.
