Maidens capture Lady Mustangs.
The 2A Haskell Maidens outscored the 4A Sweetwater Lady Mustangs 35-14 the first half and extended the lead the second half to get the 67-36 win at home. Haskell improves to 2-0 on the season.
The Maidens had a well balanced scoring attack for the second game in a row. Senior CEra Taylor led all scorers with 19 points followed by Emma Roewe with 14, Delaney Hanson 11, Melody Martinez 10, Calie Everett 5, Landry Hanson 4, and Taylor Manske 4. Leading the team in assists was L Hanson with 4, Manske 4, Martinez 2, and C Taylor 2.
Haskell shot (18-31) 58% from 2FG, (7-26) 27% from 3FG, and (8-11) 78% from FT. Offensively, the girls did an awesome job sharing the ball and passing up good shots for great shots, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
The Maidens forced the Lady Mustangs to shoot 24% from the field. Defensively, the girls did a great job contesting all shots and passes. When you do those two things it makes it really tough on the opponent and their offense, Eddleman added. The Hanson sisters led the team in steals with 2 each followed by Everett and Rodriguez with 1 each.
Haskell won the rebound battle over Sweetwater 49-24. Leading the team in rebounds was Manske with 9, Roewe 9, C Taylor 9, D Hanson 7, and L Hanson 6.
Overall, I thought the girls did a really nice job playing together on offense and defense especially when you consider how early it is on the season, Eddleman said.
The JV Maidens and Coach Simmons went undefeated and won the 2018 Haskell JV Girls Basketball Tournament for the fourth year in a row. On Thursday, they got wins over Olney 41-9 and over Munday 34-21. On Saturday, they got wins over Seymour 30-24 and Sweetwater 29-19. I was very proud of the JV Girls and Coach Simmons. They really stepped up on both ends of the floor and found a way to win all four games at our tournament, Eddleman said.
