- 2C Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Quincy&apos;s Potter beats buzzer, outlasts Chester, 42-41 : Rivalry game :comes down to !!mere seconds Greg Knight Sports Writer : When rivals clash, great basketball tends to happen. The clash between the Quincy Lady Trojans and the Lady Volcanoes of Chester proved that point last week as the two met in Quincy -- and the Trojans fought back hard to win the game, 42-41, on a buzzer-beating three-point shot by Brooke Potter. The Trojans led by as many as 12 points in the first half of the game, thanks mostly to the stout offensive and defensive output of Kaylin Henderson, who alone put up 10 of Quincy's 22 points in the half. Fellow Senior Jasmin Sherman scored five points on two buckets and a free throw as well in the first 30 minutes. The third quarter was uneventful for the Trojans as they held onto their lead and were bolstered from three-point land by a deep shot from Henderson, which, in addition to deuces from Haley Cline, Shannin Barnes and Sherman, gave Quincy a 33-26 lead after three quarters. And then, there was the fourth quarter -- and Chester's hard push to a near-win against the Trojans. The Vols managed, over the course of three minutes, to even up the score at 33-33 after shots by Paige Reed, Reanna Trujillo, Rebecca Branch and Theresa Miller found the net. It wasn't quite over for Chester at that point either. With the Vols up 39-33, thanks to a head coach Harlon Sevier to make an appearance. In the end, it came down to a choice between Sherman or Potter getting her hands on the ball. "The first thing we did , was change defenses, going to a 3-2 instead of a 2-3," Sevier said. "At that point we had to put a lot of pressure on Chester and then drive Jasmin up the gut because the bigger girls on our team were going to be making some room for her, or we would kick it out to Brooke for the three-pointer. Round about, we did exactly that and it worked out in the end." And that is exactly what happened; with 19 ticks left in the game and with Chester leading 41-39, Potter dropped a three-pointer for the win. Potter said her shot came down to a choice of tying it up with a bucket or winning it all on a three-pointer. "I decided to go for the three because that is my shot," Potter said. With the win Quincy improved its record to 2-1 on the season, while Chester fell to 2-2. The Trojans' next game will be played tomorrow at the Hamilton City Tournament. The Quincy squad will return home Jan. 23, 2015, to face Biggs after a lengthy run of road games. Chester's next game will be tomorrow at the Gridley Tournament when the Vols face Orland. Chester will return home Jan. 9 for a rematch with the Trojans.

News flash: when you assault a police officer, chances are you will get shot. This "gentle giant," as the media dubbed him, can also be seen in numerous pictures via a Google search with guns and drugs being shown off like it is the cool thing to do. Yeah ... this is the kid these five players are holding up as a hero. In turn, many young men around the country hold up NFL players as role models and heroes simply because they can carry a ball downfield and make millions of dollars. In short, maybe the players of the NFL should give better consideration to the causes they choose to take up on live TV -- else they might end up sticking both their feet into their even bigger mouths. Maybe they could consider supporting the "pants up, don't loot" movement that didn't seem to take much hold in Ferguson or other St. Louis locales after the grand jury made their decision. Naw. That might make too much sense.
