Maidens fall short to Lady Devils.
The undefeated 5th ranked 2A Haskell Maidens found themselves squaring off with the undefeated 4th ranked 3A Chapel Hill Lady Devils on Saturday afternoon in the 38th Fantasy of Lights Tournament championship game at Midwestern State University. The Maidens were outscored by the Lady Devils 23-18 the second half and fell short in the end 44-37. Haskell moves to 6-1 on the season.
Haskell shot (11-21) 52% from 2FG, (4-22) 18% from 3FG, (15-43) 35% FG, and (3-4) 75% from FT. Leading the Maidens in scoring was Senior Landry Hanson with 10 points followed by Delaney Hanson with 7, Taylor Manske 7, CEra Taylor 6, Melody Martinez 3, Emma Roewe 2, and Ryanna Rodriguez 2. Haskell had 18 turnovers and 11 assists. Leading the team in assists was Delaney, Landry, Melody, and Taylor with 2 each. Offensively, we had too many turnovers and we did not shoot the ball as well as they did from the three point line, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
Chapel Hill shot (5-16) 31% from 2FG, (9-21) 43% from 3FG, (14-37) 38% FG, and (7-10) 70% from FT. Defensively, I thought we played really well for the most part. Chapel Hill was averaging 78 points a game after seven games heading into our championship game. I was very proud of the girls for holding them to 44 points, Eddleman said.
Leading the team in steals was Landry with 3, Calie 1, CEra 1, Emma 1, and Taylor 1. Haskell won the rebound battle 29-19 over Chapel Hill. CEra had a team high 7 rebounds followed by Landry with 5, Taylor 5, and Delaney 4.
Overall, I was very proud of the girls at the 2018 Fantasy of Lights Basketball Tournament. We may have come up a few points short against a very good team in the championship game. But, we gained a lot valuable experience and learned a few things that we need to improve on moving forward. That is what you want in non-district games and tournament games, Eddleman added.
