Tournaments in Jefferson Parish, Northshore leave Lady Comets with 2-4 early season record

St. Charles’ Lady Comets opened their season last week in the Ponchatoula Tournament and went back to work in a tournament at Riverdale this week, but found victories hard to come by early in their schedule, finding a pair of wins against Reserve Christian and Higgins.

SCC was first matched up against Loranger for the Ponchatoula tourney in what quickly became a one-sided showing by the Wolves that left the Comets with a 63-24 win. The following day, St. Charles took on Independence in another tough outing. The Tigers took the win by a score of 62-33.

Their next match was more respectable as they went into halftime on top of Salmen by two points. But a two-point offensive output in the third period was to much to try and overcome in a fourth quarter stand, leaving the Lady Comets short in a 41-36 loss.

SCC got their first win last Sunday in their first game of the Riverdale Tournament against Reserve Christian. Here, the Comets defense held the Lady Eagles to single digit scoring in the first three quarters, while scoring almost 40 in that same span. Reserve Christian got motivated for the final period, but their rally fell short and St. Charles walked away with a 45-39 win. Michelle Marzoni led SCC for the game with 19 points, which tied her for high scorer with Reserve Christian’s Jenay Morris. Lady Comet Mary Clement posted the next highest offensive output with 17 while the Lady Eagle’s Porter added ten.

But any momentum built up by the win was disrupted in SCC’s following game with Rummel Transition when the Lady Comets fell 75-36 to a team composed of players from Ursuline, Dominican and Mt. Carmel.

In their final match of the Riverdale Tournament, SCC took on Higgins on Wednesday. The Lady Comets got a Thanksgiving eve treat in this one for their second win with a 68-37 win.

St. Charles’ girls squad is set to return to action this Tuesday at the St. Martin’s Tourney in Metairie.
