Maidens take down Lady Bulldogs.
The 4th ranked 2A Haskell Maidens 26-1 (7-0) made the short drive down 277 to take on the Stamford Lady Bulldogs 21-9 (5-2) last Tuesday night in District 8-2A action. Haskell went on a 25-6 run to get the 43-22 win on the road. Haskell moves to 27-1 overall and 8-0 in district.
Haskell was led by Senior CEra Taylor who finished with a game high 12 points. Other leading scorers on the night were Delaney Hanson with 8 points, Melody Martinez 8, Emma Roewe 8, Ryanna Rodriguez 5, and Landry Hanson 2. Leading the team in assists was D Hanson with 4, C Taylor 2, Everett 1, L Hanson 1, Martinez 1, and Roewe 1.
The Maidens were (12-20) 60% from 2FG, (4-16) 25% from 3FG, (16-36) 44% from FG, and (7-13) 54% from FT. Offensively, I thought we had too many turnovers and we did not shoot well from the free-throw line. Fortunately, the girls did a pretty good job shooting the ball from the field and we were able to come up with enough points to win the game, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
The Lady Bulldogs were (10-46) 28% from 2FG, (0-2) 0% from 3FG, (10-48) 21% from FG, and (2-13) 15% from FT. Haskell forced Stamford into 17 turnovers with their man to man defense. Leading the team in steals was Roewe with 3, Martinez 2, and D Hanson 1. Defensively, I thought the girls did an awesome job and it was definitely the biggest reason we won the game. They understand the importance of defense and they know that defense travels. I told them coming out of halftime that they needed to play their best defensive half of the year and they did that. I was very proud of them, Eddleman said.
Haskell edge out Stamford in rebounds 33-31. Leading the team in rebounds was D Hanson with 6, Roewe 5, C Taylor 5, Martinez 3, and T Manske 2.
Overall, I was very proud of the girls. It was tough on our team emotionally when Landry went out of the game for good during the second quarter. All the girls stepped up, rose up, and found a way to overcome a ton of adversity. We got a special team this year and they just keep finding ways to win. I think that says a lot about their character and it is an honor to be their head coach, Eddleman added.
On Friday afternoon, the JV Maidens went into battle against Stamford with only six players due to all the injuries on the Varsity. They lost the game 55-30 but competed well against a solid team on the road.
On Monday, the JR High Maidens traveled to Cross Plains to take on the Lady Buffs. The 7th A Team lost a very close game and the 8th A Team lost a very close game as well.
