CB Lady Drifters cruise past Essex Trojans

The Lady Drifters are on a mission, and by all accounts, their road to prosperity has the potential of a Northern Neck District title. Most recently, both the varsity and junior varsity teams dominated the Essex Trojans in every aspect of the game of basketball.
While the varsity Drifters defeated the Trojans 49-21, the Drifter junior varsity were victorious over the Trojan JV, 25-11.
As for the varsity, head coach Keith Dickerson is fully aware that the season is far from over, and that his team

must remain focused.
“The biggest key to our success is to work hard and never give up,” Dickerson said. “This year, the girls have bought into our defensive scheme, where they are playing from whistle to whistle.”
The varsity showdown featuring first place Northumberland (4-0, 10-3) and the Drifters (4-1, 11-3) is less than a week away. Interestingly, Drifters’ standout forward Jennay Shanklin did not play in the Drifters’ earlier 46-41 loss to the Indians. The upcoming Feb. 1 home game could decide the regular season district championship.
On Saturday at the Drifterdome, while the varsity defeated Manassas Park 48-39 in a non-district game, the junior varsity suffered their fourth loss of the season.
Prior to their second game against Essex, the Drifters will have their hands full on Friday, Jan. 28, as they host the Lancanster Red Devils.

Varsity: Drifters vs. Trojans
In the first quarter, Jennay Shanklin sparked a Drifter 11-0 run with a 3-point basket. While Karley Inscoe scored first of nine 3-point baskets, fellow forwards Carley Graves and Melissa Turner combined for three points at the foul line.
“Karley has opened up a lot things, especially Melissa in the middle, you cannot double team us — when Inscoe is on, she is on,” Dickerson said. While Inscoe led all scoring with 18 points, Shaklin poured in 9 points, including one 3-pointer.
The Drifters’ frontcourt and backcourt shadowed the Trojan offense with a constant flow of steals and deflection that resulted in no points for Essex.
After a full quarter of slumber, the Trojans offense finally woke up, as they scored 15 points to cut the Drifter lead to 23-15. Ernasia Turner rallied the Trojan offense with two jumpers, while Dianlte Nelson scored a 3-pointer.
As for the Drifters, in spite of the Trojan rally, they scored 12 points.
In the third quarter, the Drifters offense exploded with a 17-0 run. Midway through the quarter, Inscoe scored two back-to-back 3-pointers. Low in depth, and visibly tired with only eight players on their roster, the now winless Trojans began to show the rigors of a long hard-fought battle.
In the fourth quarter, the Drifters sealed the Trojans’ fate with a slow-down offense that ate up precious time from the clock.
Inscoe scored the Drifters’ final basket with a 3-pointer. Vickie Boone led all Trojan scoring with seven points.

Junior Varsity: Drifters vs. Trojans
The Drifters went straight for the jugular in first quarter. Point guard Emily Parks led the Drifters on a 7-2 run, as she accounted for two assists and two free throws. Drifter forward Billy Gould scored two jumpers, as the Drifter defense literally swarmed the Trojans, limiting them to two jumpers from Lindsey Saunders and Khaylah Brent.
Gould and Parks would later score 9 points apiece to lead all Drifter scoring.
Reminiscent of the first quarter, the Drifters offense continued a methodical assault on the Trojans’ near lifeless defense. Parks started the ball rolling with a 3-point score—moments later, Sarah Ipson scored a 3-point basket to tie the game at 7-7. Later, courtesy of scores by Tynizsa Taylor and Gould, the Drifters recaptured the momentum, ending the second quarter with a 14-9 lead.
In the third quarter, the Drifters changed the pace of the game with their version of a four corner slow down offense, which led to eliminating minutes from the clock. In fact, both teams combined for three points during the entire quarter.
During the final quarter, the Trojan offense succumbed to a relentless Drifter defense. Parks and Diasha Turner accounted for the final Drifters points.
