BLACKWOOD – Camden County College’s women’s basketball team, the Cougars, crushed Delaware County Community College’s women’s basketball team, the Phantoms, last Thursday, Dec. 6, by a score of 45-17.
Camden County was steadily making shots throughout both period one and two. Player number 23, Tierra Moore, was on the top of her game in period one that evening, scoring nine out of the 27 points at the end of the period. If Moore wasn’t making points, then she was passing the ball to someone who was. At the beginning of period one, Moore made what was described by audience member and current Camden County College freshman Brain Moser as an “epic” pass to player number 3, Jacque Scott, as Moore was almost trampled by multiple Delaware County players and two points were scored.
While the Cougars thrived in Thursday night’s game, the Phantoms crumbled under the Cougars’ strong defense. Not much was expected of the team, who was 0-6, now 0-7, but Camden County player number 30, Hannah Angle, said Delaware County still played well, the Cougars were just able to read their offense and easily put them down. Audience member Moser thought otherwise, “They just looked like a middle school gym class taking shots at a basketball net.”
Angle, a guard and forward for the Cougars, the following day described their gameplay, “We came out, did what we had to do and we got the win,” although Angle believes the team still has many more improvements to make if they want to make it further.
The Cougars are 3-3.
As to what’s next for the team, Angle exclaimed, “Continue to rise and conquer and get to the top!”
The Cougars’ next game is Saturday, Dec. 8, at 1 p.m., when the team hosts Passaic County Community College.
