Maidens take down Lady Tigers.
The 14th ranked (2A) Haskell Maidens made the short drive down the road last Friday night to take on the Anson Lady Tigers in District 8-2A action. Haskell outscored Anson 23-10 the first half and went on to get the 44-26 road win. The Maidens won their ninth game in a row and they remain undefeated in district play. They move to 23-1 overall and (4-0) in district.
Haskell had three players in double figure scoring. Junior Taylor Manske had 15 points, Senior Hollyn Hadaway 14, and Junior CEra Taylor 11. Other leading scorers were Landry Hanson with 3 points and Calie Everett 1. Leading the team in assists was Hadaway with 2, Hanson 1, and C Taylor 1.
The Maidens were (15-36) for 41% from the field, (2-9) for 22% from behind the 3 point arc, and (12-31) for 39% from the free-throw line. Offensively, I thought the girls did a good job shooting from the field and drawing fouls. We talked about being aggressive on offense, getting the ball to our post players, and trying to get them in foul trouble. I thought the girls did a solid job getting all that done, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
The Lady Tigers were (8-35) for 22% from the field, (2-10) from behind the 3 point arc, and (8-15) for 53% from the free-throw line. Defensively, I was really proud of the girls. They were determined and focused on taking away their strengths and exposing their weaknesses. I thought it was a great team effort by all nine girls, Eddleman said.
Haskell won the rebound battle over Anson 34-13. Leading the team in rebounds was C Taylor with 12 and Hadaway with 11 which gave both girls a double-double on the night. Manske had a team high 3 steals followed by Hadaway with 1.
Overall, it was an interesting game to say the least. I was proud of the girls for finding a way to just grind it out and for overcoming all the things they were trying to do against us defensively. I thought the girls did a great job playing man to man defense, rebounding on both ends of the floor, and getting to the free-throw line, Eddleman added.
Coach Burson and the JV Maidens defeated Anson 39-19. They move to 13-3 overall and (4-0) in district.
