Maidens too much for Lady Pipers.
The Haskell Maidens (6-0) traveled to Hamlin (5-1) last Tuesday night to take on the Lady Pipers in a pivotal District 8-2A match-up to start round two of district play. Haskell outscored Hamlin 29-19 the second half to get the 47-31 road win. The 15th ranked Haskell Maidens move to 26-1 overall and 7-0 in district.
The Maidens were led by Sophomore Landry Hanson who finished with 20 points and Junior CEra Taylor who finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds to get the double-double. Other leading scorers on the night were Taylor Manske with 7 points and Ariel Martinez with 1 point. Leading the team in assists was Manske with 8, Hadaway 3, and Martinez 1.
Haskell was (18-42) for 42% from the field, (3-11) for 27% from behind the 3 point arc, and (11-19) for 57% from the free-throw line. Offensively, I thought the girls did a great job reading the defense and taking advantage of mismatches, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
Hamlin was (9-46) for 19% from the field, (0-6) for 0% from behind the 3 point arc, and (10-21) for 47% from the free-throw line. Defensively, I was really proud of the girls. They made it tough on Hamlin from start to finish. The girls take a lot of pride in their defense and that is something they can always count on when playing on the road, Eddleman said.
The Maidens won the rebound battle over the Lady Pipers 37-17. Junior Taylor Manske had a team high 12 rebounds followed by C Taylor with 10, Hadaway 6, and Hanson 6. Leading the team in steals was Hanson with 2, C Taylor 2, Hadaway 1, and Martinez 1.
Overall, I thought it was a great district win on the road against a well coached team. Coach Sullivan does a great job and Hamlin has been a tough place for us to play over the past six years. The girls did an excellent job rising up and doing all the little things that it takes to win on the road against a solid district opponent, Eddleman added.
