Duncanville Continues Rolling to State Finals. Downs Cibolo Steele 81-41

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

It doesn’t take long for the outcome of a Duncanville Pantherette game to become fairly apparent. Especially when the Duncanville starts out with a 14-4 run that eats away the first five and a half minutes of the first quarter. Duncanville would continue the dominance the rest of the game to come away with an 81-41 victory in the 6A state semifinal over Cibolo Steele at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

Duncanville’s game plan from the beginning involved the low post play of Duncanville senior and Louisville commit Ciera Johnson. The Pantherette’s would continuously feed Johnson down load and it was either a layup off the glass, or a turnaround jumper from within the paint. This made for easy buckets for Duncanville and put Steele’s 6’4” post in foul trouble early.

Bryant picked up her fourth foul halfway through the second quarter and eventually fouled out of the game with less than a minute gone in the third quarter. By the time Bryant had fouled out, Duncanville had stretched the lead to 45-22.

For the game, Duncanville scored 58 of their points in the paint, and out rebounded Steele 49-37.

Leading the way for Duncanville was Ciera Johnson with another double-double. Johnson scored 32 points in the game and pulled down 11 rebounds. Zarielle Green had 16 points and 5 rebounds, while Madison Townley continued her dominance on the glass with 10 rebounds and scoring 8 points.

Antonia Anderson led Cibolo Steele with 12 points and 5 rebounds. Charisma Shepherd had 7 points and 4 rebounds, while Bryant was held to 6 points and 5 rebounds.

Duncanville will now face Spring Dekaney in the 6A state finals tonight at 8:30 p.m. in the Alamodome. Dekaney defeated Galena Park North Shore 62-51 to advance.
