2A Maidens too much for 4A Lady Lions.
The 2A Haskell Maidens hosted the 4A Vernon Lady Lions last Friday night in non-district play. Haskell outscored Vernon 39-17 the second half to get the 79-37 win at home. The Maidens extend their home winning streak to 38 games and move to 15-1 on the season as they head into the much needed CHRISTmas break.
Haskell was led offensively by Junior Landry Hanson who finished with a season high 27 points, Senior CEra Taylor who finished with 21 points, and Freshman Delaney Hanson who finished with 12 points. Other leading scorers on the night were Melody Martinez with 7 points, Calie Everett 4, Taylor Manske 4, Ryanna Rodriguez 3, and Emma Roewe 1. Haskell had a season high 21 assists and every player contributed to that total. Melody led the way with 4 assists followed by Calie with 3, Emma 3, Landry 3, Taylor 3, CEra 2, Delaney 2, and Ryanna 1.
Haskell shot (18-31) 58% from 2FG, (11-29) 38% from 3FG, (29-60) 48% FG, and (10-15) 67% from FT. Offensively, I was really proud of the girls. They were clicking on all cylinders and playing at a very high level. They had a season high 11 three pointers and a season high 21 assists, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
The Maidens man to man defense forced the Lady Lions to shoot (13-47) 28% and caused them to turn the ball over 23 times. Leading the team in steals was Melody with 4, Taylor 4, Emma 2, Calie 1, CEra 1, and Landry 1. Defensively, I thought we played well and we did a much better job of rebounding than we did against Roby on Tuesday night, Eddleman said.
Haskell won the battle of the boards over Vernon 43-29 and all the Maidens contributed to that effort. Leading the team in rebounds was CEra with 8, Melody 8, Taylor 8, Delaney 5, Emma 5, Landry 3, Calie 2, and Ryanna 2.
Overall, I thought we played very well on both ends of the floor and it was fun to watch. We are 15-1 heading into the CHRISTmas break and I feel really good about that. My only concern right now is injuries. It is going to be vitally important that we stay healthy throughout the season like we did last year. Hopefully, we can get everyone healthy over the break and stay healthy moving forward, Eddleman added.
On Friday afternoon, Coach Simmons and the JV Maidens got a big win over the Vernon Lady Lions 30-28 at home. They are 10-5 heading into the CHRISTmas break.
