Holly High boys down Dragons
The Holly High Lady Hawks had their hands full in their 11th game of the season Tuesday night, Dec. 8.
Their foe was the Lady Dragons from M.S. Palmer. Palmer is a member of the Lady Hawks’ district and division.
Holly High gave the Lady Dragons a highly contested first quarter being down by just one point at 12-11 when it ended. The Lady Hawks fell off a little in the second frame, allowing Palmer to outscore them by 10 points. The hosts found themselves behind 30-19 at the horn.
Palmer stretched its lead to 51-31 after three completed quarters. The final frame would prove to be the most productive for Holly High, however, their 18 points fell way short of causing any discomfort to the visitors. Palmer went on to win 65-49.
Each team had three shooting leaders in double figures. Megan Crittle was first for the Lady Hawks with 17. Kayla Burns and Rachel Selman registered 14 and 11, respectively.
The Lady Dragons had a fire breather in Kimberly McDonald, who hit often for a total of 24. Bridgett Griffin and April Walters posted 11 apiece.
Hawks earn split
The Hawks didn’t have any problems quenching the fire of the Dragons of M.S. Palmer who came to Hawksville Tuesday evening of last week.
Holly High outscored the visitors 20-16 in the first quarter. The Dragons showed their best defensive effort in the second frame, when they and the Hawks both hit for 10 each. That left the Dragons only four points behind at the half with the score at 30-26.
Led by Jonathan Bownes, coach Naylond Hayes’ 9-1 Hawks took control again in the third, outgunning the Dragons 18-10 for a quarter ender of 48-36.
Palmer had its second best quarter of 13 but the Hawks’ 20-point performance made the cut too deep to heal. The Hawks went on to down the division foe by a total of 68-49.
Bownes led the victors with 23. Darius Dowdy pitched in 18.
Quinterea Dion paced the Dragons with 25. He was aided by Kentavious Kuykendall who had 13.
Holly High was scheduled to face another division foe on Tuesday in the Wildcats from Independence.
