It’s not over yet, but the St. Charles Catholic girls basketball team is going to have to get on one heck of a winning streak to keep their season alive.

The Lady Comets fell to 1-4 in district 10-3A play last Friday when they were defeated by E.D. White 48-39.

Lady Comets head coach Erin Remondet said her team is struggling on both ends of the court.

“Offensively we were very stagnant,” Remondet said. “We didn’t get anything going on the offensive end. They (E.D. White) did a very good job defensively against Rynique Perkins. She was held without a field goal the entire game.

“She did end up with a sprained ankle, but that is not an excuse. They did a very good job defending her. Mentally, I think her injury took her out the game as well.”

Shutting down the star sophomore, Remondet said it also played a significant role in the Lady Comets inability to develop any offensive chemistry.

“When they shut Rynique down we just couldn’t get anything going in transition,” Remondet said. “Transition basketball and easy baskets is what really gets us going. We were not able to develop that.”

1-4 in district play, Remondet told her team that they still have a chance for the playoffs.

“I told my team to do not give up at all,” Remondet said. “If we run the table we can end up 4-4 in district and then you never know what could happen. I told them don’t give up.

“We lost the last three games by a total of about 17 points. We know that we can play with every team in this district. We just have to put four good quarters together.”
