Manor Round 2

Success in athletics often comes down to the survival of the fittest with on-court intelligence and discipline figuring heavily in the outcome at crucial points in the contest. And so it was in the closing minutes of 14th-ranked Georgetown’s 35-34 victory over Manor in District 18-5A action in the Lady Mustangs’ sparkling new gym. Friday’s come-from-behind effort lifted the Lady Eagles to 9-0 in district play and 19-10 on the season. Three factors played heavily in the Lady Eagles’ victory — a 3-pointer by sophomore guard  Graci Harris that cut a four-point Manor led to one with 2:52 to go in the game, two back-to-back technical fouls on Lady Mustangs’ junior De’maya Young in the final minute and an 11-point fourth period by Georgetown junior guard Kylie Ellsworth.The victory put coach Rhonda Farney’s Lady Eagles into a position where a win Tuesday on Senior Night can clinch no worse than a tie for the 18-5A championship. Georgetown’s final home game will pair it against last place Bastrop Cedar Creek (0-10 in district) at 7 p.m. in Eagle Gym.

  

If GHS prevails against Cedar Creek and East View (7-2) fails its road test Tuesday at Bastrop (3-7), the Lady Eagles would clinch the outright title and the district’s No. 1 seeding in the Class 5A state playoffs with two games remaining on the regular-season schedule. Georgetown bested their Cedar Creek namesakes, 64-21, in their first meeting. The Patriots beat Bastrop, 35-25, in their opening-round game. Georgetown will close out the district race with a pair of potentially rough road assignments — Hutto on Friday and East View on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

In Friday’s contest, Young, the game’s leading scorer with 15 points, was ejected with 46 seconds remaining when assessed with a delay of game/taunting technical and then drawing a second technical for an inappropriate response to a game official.  Ellsworth made three of four free throws on the technicals, making the score 32-30 in Georgetown’s favor. With 27.9 seconds remaining, Harris added another free throw to make it 33-30. However, Manor’s Debra’ann Baynard made a basket to cut the GHS lead to 33-32. Ellsworth then kicked the lead back to three points with a pair of free throws. Another bucket by Baynard in the closing seconds concluded the scoring. “We played really well in the last two minutes,” Farney said of a victory that put her in reach of her 30th consecutive 20-win season at Georgetown. “Graci’s 3-pointer was as big play for us and we shot our free throws well in the fourth quarter (eight of 10). Kylee Sander also did good things for us.” Coach Farney, said, “Kylie Ellsworth was clutch for us in the fourth quarter.”

  

In a game that neither team led by more than nine points — GHS was up 14-5 on a basket by junior post MacKenzy Mouton with 5:20 to go in the second quarter — the score was 18-14 in favor of the Lady Eagles at the half. It was deadlocked 20-20 after three. Manor outscored GHS, 12-4, over a span that stretched from 6:29 in the third until Harris’ scored her trey that pulled Georgetown within one point. Knight was the No. 2 scorer for GHS with nine points, while Harris and Mouton  added seven and six, respectively. The Lady Eagles outrebounded the Lady Mustangs, 26-17, with senior Samari O’Brien pulling down seven and junior post McCall Hampton grabbing five. Hampton and O’Brien each had four steals. Neither team scorched the nets. GHS shot 32 percent (12 of 37 with only two successes in 13 beyond the arch) and Manor hit 27 percent (13 of 47 with no connections from 3-point range). The Lady Eagles will be honoring six seniors Tuesday night — Knight, O’Brien, guard Ali Isbell, post Jade Smith, post Alicia King and manager Chloe Sutton.

 

Georgetown dominated both sub-varsity games, improving to 9-0 in both District 18-5A competitions. The JV prevailed 64-33 and the Freshman Blue won 82-30. Megan Herring and Mercedes Robledo led the JV with 22 and 12 points, respectively. In the Freshman Blue contest, Kristin Lott scored 22 and Dylann Jones added 20. Lauren Cavanaugh also had 12 for the Lady Eagles. Tuesday’s JV and Freshman Blue games with Cedar Creek are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. starts.
