Monday's high school basketball roundup: Bethel girls beat Landstown, advance to 6A regional semis

Thanks to a strong second quarter Monday night, the Bethel High girls are among the state’s final eight teams in Group 6A.

First Colonial girls 58, Woodside 32

The host Patriots used a big second-quarter surge to pull away from the Wolverines in a Group 6A South quarterfinal in Virginia Beach.

First Colonial (21-3) led 10-5 after one quarter and outscored the visitors 22-7 in the second quarter to take a 32-12 lead at intermission in a matchup of two of Hampton Roads’ most successful longtime coaches: FC’s Larry Bowman and Woodside’s Mike Tallon.

Kemonei Earp led Woodside (16-8) with eight points.

“Enthusiasm, execution and effort,” Bowman told The Virginian-Pilot about his team's goals.

“If we can do the three E’s, we can go a long way,” said Bowman, whose team has won 17 in a row. “I was very pleased with everything we did tonight. Maybe not so much with rebounding, but with everything else.”

Tallon said of the Patriots, “They’re a really good team, don’t get me wrong ... but much of that was us. We had that 'deer in the headlight' look.

“A big issue for us was to get off to a good start, and we didn’t. We basically were not here tonight.”

First Colonial’s full-court, trapping press forced 21 Woodside turnovers, turning some of them into a total of 16 points. Ladeja James, Gabby Swinson and Chea Burrus also combined for nine steals, turning some into a total of nine points.

“Our defense is what won us this game tonight,” said James, who led all scorers with 21 points. We had a lot of stops tonight. Once we were setting our twos (traps), we knew that’s when we had the defense to stop them.”

At the start of the second quarter, Woodside cut the margin to just four, only to have First Colonial go on a 12-0 run aided by a pair of Burrus 3-pointers. Burrus finished with 16 points.

First Colonial then went on an 8-0 run to end the second quarter and start the third.

The Patriots led by 34 points when both coaches emptied their benches with a little less than four minutes left to play.

“We just couldn’t play our game because of their pressure and because of us,” Tallon told the Virginian-Pilot. “(First Colonial) was very prepared. They hustled, passed, shot and outdefended us.”
