Lady Indians’ season ends in defensive battle at Alcoa

ALCOA, Tenn.  |   In a battle of two stout defenses, it was Alcoa's defense that got the upper hand in Monday's (Feb. 26) Region 1-2A semifinal game here, as the Tornadoes advanced to the Class 2A sectional with a 52-24 win over Oneida.

The final score did not reflect the competitiveness of the game, however, as Alcoa outscored Oneida 20-5 in the fourth quarter to turn what had been a tight affair into a comfortable win. 

While Alcoa jumped out to a 6-0 lead and Oneida never led, the Tornadoes were never able to put the game away until the fourth quarter, despite a slow first half offensively for the Lady Indians. 

It was an 11-8 Alcoa lead after the first quarter, and a 24-12 lead at halftime. 

However, Oneida battled back in the third quarter, cranking up the defensive intensity and forcing Alcoa into several turnovers.

Officiating became a factor late in the third quarter and early in the fourth quarter. One official in particular blew his whistle against Oneida with increasing frequency, often turning to eye the complaining crowd from Oneida in the bleachers after blowing his whistle. 

Ultimately, though, the game's main storyline was Alcoa's defense and rebounding. The Tornadoes limited Oneida to just 18% shooting, a season low, and held a 37 to 22 advantage on the boards.

Alcoa's interior defense, in particular, was smothering. The Tornadoes forced Oneida into a number of missed shots inside.

and each had six points to lead Oneida. Amelia Pfeiffer had 12 points and 17 rebounds to lead three Alcoa players in double figures.

The loss ended Oneida's season, and was the final game for three seniors: Bush, and

The win advanced Alcoa to face Gatlinburg-Pittman in a rematch of the District 2-2A championship game.
