2nd Time versus Manor

With three playing dates in eight calendar days remaining before the scheduled end of the District 18-5A basketball chase, the clock probably ticks a little louder every hour for the seventh-ranked Georgetown Lady Eagles and the arch-rival East View Patriots. Two schools located little more than three linear miles apart, are tied for first place with 8-1 records. Each team has one game remaining with an opponent at the bottom of the seven-team scramble and one with a fellow state-playoff contender before their 7:30 p.m. showdown on Tuesday, Feb. 11, in Eagle Gym.

    

Georgetown’s only district loss was to the host Patriots, 46-42, on Jan. 17. East View’s only district divot was a 45-36 loss to Hutto on Friday, Dec. 20. The Patriots’ win over the Lady Eagles was their first in a 15-game series between the two that dates back eight seasons. But at this time, both Rhonda Farney’s Lady Eagles, 23-8 for the season, and Dave Walla’s 24-5 Patriots, must take care of business this Tuesday and Friday for the last-night climax to have its anticipated impact.  On Tuesday night, Georgetown, coming off a dominant 73-36 win over Manor at home, travels to Bastrop Cedar Creek (1-9 in 18-5A, 7-26 season). GHS won the first meeting, 71-7, with the second stingiest defensive yield in school history. They return home to play Hutto, currently in fourth place at 4-5. Georgetown won the first meeting in Hippoland, 48-27, on Jan. 14. Hutto hosts Elgin on Tuesday night. East View, coming off a 37-31 loss to 6A Round Rock Cedar Ridge on Friday, tackles third-place Bastrop (6-3, 14-15) at 7 p.m. Tuesday and takes a road trip to sixth-place Elgin (1-8, 4-24) on Friday.  The Patriots bested Bastrop, 52-34, and Elgin, 32-21, in the first round.

     

Georgetown’s No. 7 state ranking is from the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, while East View is unranked by that organization. However, both are listed in the Texas Girls Coaches Association top 25 with the Lady Eagles at 12th and the Patriots at 18th. The one-side squashing of Manor added to a night when GHS celebrated its middle school basketball players at Benold and Forbes Middle Schools and the program honored arguably the best player in school history — Erica Kovach, who played for Farney for four seasons from 1999 to 2003, She owns the school career record 2,125 points and was a multi-season all-state selection, leading GHS to the 5A state finals in 2002-2003. “I’m really proud of the way we played,” Farney said. “The kids came out firing on all cylinders (offensively), played great defense and rebounded well. It was nice to play with all our kids. The last few games have shown how good  of shape we’re in.” “Came out firing on all cylinders” may have been an understatement. The Lady Eagles led the Lady Mustangs, 22-2, after the first period and held a 41-15 advantage at the half. The lead reached 30 points on a bucket by senior guard Kylee Sander with 6:25 remaining in the third quarter. A basket off a steal by junior guard Graci Harris gave GHS the game-high lead at 39 points (69-30) with 3:01 to go in the game. Georgetown hit on 55.4 percent (31 of 56) from the floor, while holding Manor to 28 percent (14 of 50). The Lady Eagles posted a 42-16 rebounding edge and its defensive pressure forced 25 turnovers. Four Lady Eagles finished in double-figures with Sander scoring a personal season-high 21 points with Harris adding 13. Seniors McCall Hampton and Kylie Ellsworth scored 12 points each. Janiya Davis and Keanna Walker-Gilbert combined for 25 points of Manor’s points. 

 

Georgetown swept the two sub-varsity games with the young Mustang’s. The JV, now 8-0 in district and 16-8 on the season, won 71-18, with 20 points from Megan Herring and 13 from Lauren Cavanaugh. The unbeaten Freshman Blue ran its season and district marks to 24-0 and 7-0, with a 63-11 victory in which Ainsley Pelczar and Madelyne Furr scored 21 and 14 points, respectively. The GHS Freshman White (8-9) dropped a 21-16 decision to the Jarrell JV. Abby Brent scored 10 points to lead the White. “I was really pleased,” Farney said of the program’s younger players. “The JV played all out and shot the ball well. The Blue continued to do well and the White was playing its third game in seven days against either a Jarrell freshman or JV team.” On Tuesday against Cedar Creek, the JV and Freshman Blue teams will be playing at 5:30 p.m. When the Lady Eagles return home Friday to play Hutto, it will be Cancer Warriors Night.
