2021 3A Girls Basketball Final: Douglas Vs Lyman
After a tremendous four-year run, you can run out of superlatives to describe the Douglas girls basketball team. Dominant, skilled balanced and unselfish come to mind as the Bearcats ran the table en route to a 51-11 win over Lyman in the 3A championship game on Thursday in Casper. Douglas has enjoyed the presence of Allyson Fertig in the pivot and she has seen her fair share of defenses in order to stop her. Lyman's attempt was to no avail as she had 16 points and 9 rebounds. Kamdynn Townsend and Chloe Collins had 9 each with Joslin Igo chipping in 8. The Cats led 8-0 after one-quarter of play and cruised on in.
Lyman endured a very rough shooting night with 5 field goals in 37 attempts. It just didn't look like the same team that beat a good Worland squad 45-41 in the semi-finals. The Eagle's leading scorer was Sage Bradshaw with 5 but it was a tough endeavor all the way around. They wrapped up the season with a record of 19-5.
If the 3A state tournament in 2020 was played instead of canceled due to the pandemic. Douglas would have won 4 state titles in the last 4 years. There were more than a few games this season that the Cats had a running clock in the 2nd half, thanks to a 40 point lead. They won all 24 games they played and posted a record of 100-2 over the course of four years. By the way, Douglas has won 41 games in a row and Fertig is a University of Wyoming signee for basketball.
Take a peek at the highlights from Thursday's championship game in Casper. Enjoy.
