Two on the road games…

 

 

 

“Saturday we’ll play the best team we’ve faced so far this season,” Georgetown Lady Eagles coach Rhonda Farney said Monday afternoon after her team’s 52-35 victory over struggling Victoria East on the Titans’ court. That victory improved Georgetown’s record to 5-4 as it looks toward Saturday’s 1:30 p.m. battle with undefeated Pflugerville Hendrickson at Eagle Gym. The Hawks stand 10-0 and are ranked a consensus third in both major Class 6A polls.

  

The Lady Eagles were knocked out of Texas Association of Basketball Coaches 5A poll this past week by back-to-back losses to 6A Vista Ridge (63-48) and 4A Burnet (65-56) prior to the victory over 3-9 Victoria East. Hendrickson, which posted a 32-7 record last season, returned district MVP Mikayla Ward, a 5-foot-6 senior, along with two standout younger performers in 6-1 sophomore Zoe Nelson and 5-7 junior Sarah Malinowski this year. Both Malinkowski and Nelson were second-team all-district choices a year ago for a team that reached the regional finals before being eliminated five points short of a trip to the UIL State Tournament.

 

As for the Lady Eagles, Farney saw improvement in the win over Victoria East from their loss in Burnet on Friday night when her team was burned by the 3-point shooting (eight success) and a 23 of 31 performance at the line by the Bulldogs. “I  was glad that we got more production from the perimeter today,” Farney said of the victory over East. “We improved in several areas over Friday night. I thought MacKenzy (6-0 junior Mouton) continued to show improvement.” In relation to the improved outside shooting performance, sophomore guard Graci Harris was a key factor in the victory as she led all scorers with 18 points, including a four-of-six effort beyond the arc. She was a total seven of 11 from the floor as the Lady Eagles shot 40 percent (17 of 42) on field goal attempts.Mouton, 5-11 senior Jaelyn Knight both scored nine of GHS’ points and 5-10 junior McCall Hampton added eight points and a game-high eight rebounds.

  

Georgetown got all five of its 3-point shots in the first 17 minutes of the game with junior Maya Perry putting down the other as GHS led 35-16 with seven minutes and eight seconds remaining in the third quarter. East, which is coached by former University of Texas and Victoria High standout Yulonda Wimbish-North, made a move to pull itself back into the game, but could get no closer than 45-35 with 2:27 remaining with a comeback led by Giani Wimbish-Gay and Zakri Perry, who both finished with 12 points. Perry also had a team-high seven rebounds for the Titans.Georgetown closed out the game by scoring the final seven points in the closing 2:07, including a pair of field goals by Hampton.

 

In Friday’s loss to Burnet, Georgetown led 13-7 at the end of the first quarter and 32-27 at the half. The Lady Eagles’ final three points of the half came a last-second shot by junior guard Kylee Ellsworth that was launched beyond midcourt. However, the host Bulldogs came back to lead 48-47 after three quarters on the strength of a 3-pointer by Trynadee Greenwell. GHS regained the lead at 49-48 by a basket by Hampton, but a 3-pointer by Emma Lewis put Burnet back on top to stay at 51-49 with seven minutes remaining. From that point, the Bulldogs outscored GHS, 14-7.Lewis led Burnet with 24 points and Paris Brinkley and Greenwell added in 17 and 15 points, respectively. Four of Lewis’ eight baskets were from beyond the arc. Hampton paced GHS with 15 points and six boards, while Ellsworth added 14 points. Georgetown shot 47 percent from the floor (23 of 49), but that included only three makes in 19 3-point attempts.

In a game in which 39 total fouls were called — 24 on the Lady Eagles — GHS was seven of 11 at the line, while the home-town Bulldogs enjoyed their 31 attempts with 23 makes. After playing Hendrickson on Saturday, the Lady Eagles will travel to Kyle to play 6A Lehman at 7 p.m. Monday before competing in its own Jack Frost Invitational Tournament on Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 29-Dec. 1. Lehman, picked seventh in nine-team 25-6A, stands 3-6 on the season.

  

In sub-varsity action at Victoria East, the GHS JV and Freshman Blue outscored their counterparts by a 103-9 margin. The Blue dominated 59-1 and the JV took a 44-8 decision. The Freshman Blue allowed the East Freshman their only point in the first quarter as the final three quarters of the game were played with a running clock. Four Lady Eagles scored in double figures — Sheila Lee, 12; Kristin Lott, 11; Dylann Jones, 10; and Lauren Cavanaugh, 10.

  

In the JV game, GHS built a 33-4 advantage by the half. Junior Mercedes Robledo led the scoring with 14 points. The game also marker the return to action of junior point guard Kylee Sander, who had been sidelined for several games with an leg injury. Saturday’s sub-varsity schedule with Hendrickson has the JV and Freshman Blue playing at noon.
