Maidens Complete 5 Peat District Championship.
The Haskell Maidens officially won their fifth consecutive District Championship and their sixth in seven years this past Friday night at home with their 39-31 win over the Roscoe Plowgirls. Haskell outscored Roscoe 26-5 the first half and held on the second half to get the win. The Maidens move to 28-1 overall and 9-0 in district 8-2A.
Haskell was led offensively by Freshman Delaney Hanson who finished with a game high 13 points and Senior CEra Taylor who finished with 10 points. Other leading scorers on the night were Melody Martinez with 6 points, Landry Hanson 5, Emma Roewe 4, and Ryanna Rodriguez 1. Leading the team in assists was Martinez with 2, Rodriguez 2, and D Hanson 1.
Haskell had their worst game of the year shooting the ball. They were (8-24) 33% from 2FG, (3-18) 17% from 3FG, (11-42) 26% from FG, and (14-28) 50% from FT. Offensively, we did a good job of not turning the ball over very much. Unfortunately, we just had an off night shooting the ball. It happens at the high school level, college level, and pro level. I am not worried about it and I am confident that we bounce back from it on Tuesday night down at Albany, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
Roscoe was (8-15) 53% from 2FG, (4-17) 24% from 3FG, (12-32) 38% from FG, and (3-4) 75% from FT. Haskell used pressure man to man defense to force Roscoe into 24 turnovers. Leading the team in steals was Rodriguez with 4, Roewe 4, D Hanson 2, L Hanson 2, Martinez 2, Everett 1, and C Taylor 1. Defensively, I thought the girls played great during the first half. Unfortunately, we began to lose our intensity a little bit during the second half and they hit some tough shots against us. I give Roscoe a lot of credit for coming out strong the second half and competing at a high level after being down big at halftime, Eddleman said.
Haskell won the battle of the boards over Roscoe 30-26. C Taylor led the way in rebounds with 10 followed by Roewe with 4, D Hanson 4, Everett 2, Martinez 2, and Rodriguez 2.
Overall, I was very proud of the girls for finding a way to win a tough game and I was happy that they clinched an outright District Championship at home. They have the heart of a champion and they do not back down from adversity. They found a way to overcome all the injuries to our team and rough night shooting the ball. I credit their success during these adverse times to their hard work, determination, perseverance, preparation, defense, and teamwork. The coaching staff and I are extremely proud of them, Eddleman added.
