Lady Rams fall to Bryan, 62-43

Coming off a huge opening night win against a very good Miller City ball club, the Lady Rams looked to see where they stacked up against the top teams in the area, enter the visiting Bryan Golden Bears.

Coming in off a 19-4 season that saw the Golden Bears knocked out of the OHSAA tournament by the eventual State Champs, the Napoleon Lady Wild Cats, this would be a good early season test for the Tinora Lady Rams.

Bryan entered the contest at 1-1, Tinora came in at 1-0.

The Lady Rams jumped out to a very early first quarter lead, 6-1, Bryan fought back to take the lead after the first quarter, 14-11

The second quarter saw more of the Golden Bears flexing their muscles most of the quarter. However, after seeing Bryan jumping to a late second quarter 33-18 lead, the Lady Rams closed the quarter on an 8-0 run, two quick buckets by Emily Harr, and a three pointer to end the quarter cut the Bryan lead to 33-26 as the teams headed to the half. Bryan was led at the half by Delilah Taylor with 10, Nova Okuley paced Tinora with seven at the half.

Tinora cut into the Bryan lead even more to start the third stanza, 33-28. This is where the Lady Rams night took a turn for the worse.
Over the next seven minutes, Bryan outscored Tinora 19-7 to take a 54-33 lead to the fourth quarter. Tinora cut the lead to 46-33 before Bryan ended the quarter on an 8-0 run.

The fourth quarter came and went, with the Lady Rams unable to make much of a dent into the Golden Bears lead throughout the final stanza. Bryan came away with a 62-43 win over the Tinora Lady Rams.

Many bright spots for Tinora in the loss, including freshman Nova Okuley with a team high 15 points on three 3 pointers. However, playing a very talented Golden Bear team, shows the Lady Rams still have much work to do this young season.

With the win, Bryan improves to 2-1.
After the loss, Tinora falls to 1-1. Tinora will head to Delta to take on the Lady Panthers in a Saturday afternoon game, 1pm JV start – We will not cover this game.

Lady Rams open season with a 55-48 win over Miller City

As the Lady Rams closed the summer and fall off season training programs, I’m sure most of the ladies thought to themselves, ‘boy, I sure hope all this running pays off.”
Well, in the season opener vs the Miller City Lady Wildcats, all that off season conditioning most certainly paid off.

In a rotation that could extend 10+ deep at times this season, head coach Kyle Tietje and staff certainly could see the unlimited combinations that can be paired this season.

With just a lone senior suiting up this season, Amanda Meyer, this Lady Rams team is young and very talented. This was all shown tonight as the Wildcats of Miller City came to visit in the season opener for both teams.

Miller City was coming in off a 15-9 season, a deep run in the 2020-’21 OHSAA playoffs, and with ’20-’21 PCL first teamer Abi Lammers. The Lady Rams have been looking forward to this season since the final buzzer of last season’s 10-13 season.

Tinora came out firing on all cylinders in the initial quarter, outscoring the Wildcats of Miller City 18-12. The Lady Rams Amanda Meyer and the Lady ‘Cats Abli Lammers battled it out in the first, Meyer with 7 points, Lammers with 10 in the first quarter.

As the Lady Rams took a six point lead into the second, Lammers picked up her second foul midway in the quarter, she would not see any more action in the half. With Lammers saddled to the bench, the Lady Rams were unable to increase their lead, taking a 28-25 lead to the half.

Throughout the third, both teams battled, The Lady Rams building an 11 point lead, seeing it cut to just two after Lammers drained a three at the end of the quarter, Tinora led 40-38.

Heading to the fourth, the Lady Rams deep bench, and conditioning was certainly a factor. With Lammers catching fire again, ending with a game high 22 points and 16 rebounds, Tinora looked to slow the PCL star. Tinora increased their lead to as many as eight midway through the quarter, but Lammers and the Wildcats would battle back, cutting the lead to just three. The Lady Rams would spend a majority of the last three minutes at the line. Splitting free throws and slowing down Lammers the last few trips down the floor enabled the Lady Rams to hang on to a season opening win over Miller City, 55-48.

The Higbea Embroidery Player of the game went to Amanda Meyer, Meyer not originally scheduled to play, finished with 12 points and 7 rebounds. Great job Amanda.

Tinora improves to 1-0 and will host Bryan on Tuesday, Nov 23.
Miller City drops to 0-1 and will host Corey-Rowson on Monday, Nov 29.
