Eagles vs. The Warriors

On Saturday the 14th, The Georgetown Lady Eagles traveled to Austin to face Class 6A Westwood in a non-district game. It was the second outing of the young season for the Lady Eagles and the third for the Lady Warriors. At halftime, GHS held an 11-point advantage and appeared to have the momentum, but the far away was ready to set the stage for a 54-52 victory by the Lady Eagles, who used the scoring and rebounding of 6-foot-4 junior center Niah Williams in the closing minutes to hold off the Lady Warriors.

    

Westwood, which made only one of 16 3-point attempts in the first half, knocked down seven of 13 attempts from beyond the arch in the second half — four in the third quarter and three in the fourth period as Arisha Chintala and Serena Barauh took an eraser to Georgetown’s lead. In fact, a tree by Chintala with 4:25 remaining in the fourth quarter put Westwood ahead 38-35 but was countered 22 seconds later by a 3-pointer by GHS senior Jordyn Stout. The Lady Eagles kicked the lead back out to six at 51-45 on a pair of baskets by Williams and a bucket by Harris. The Lady Warriors and Lady Eagles then traded a 3-pointer by Chintala with a basket by Williams. With 1:06 to go the score was 53-50 Georgetown after a basket by Westwood’s Desi Davalos and the Lady Warriors pulled even closer when another basket cut the GHS lead to 53-52. In the closing seconds, Williams grabbed the rebound was fouled, and made a free throw with one tick left on the clock.

   

“It was a good win for us in a very physical game,” GHS coach Rhonda Farney said. “Niah came through big for us at the end. It’s always a good test to play Coach (Doug) Davalos’ team. In many ways, they play a lot like us. They are physical and put emphasis on their entire program.

 “Our freshman and JV kids also did a good job today.” Junior guard Jacqui was a key figure in Georgetown’s first-half performance, scoring 10 of her team-high 12 points in the first 16 minutes. Harris and Williams each added 11 points and tossed in five and seven rebounds, respectively. Spencer topped the steals chart with six and Williams had three blocks. Chintala led Westwood with 17 points, while Barauh and Davalos scored 12 each. 

 

After a pair of wins over 6A opposition, Georgetown will open a busy week at Eagle Gym when it entertains Class 3A Lorena at 8 p.m. Monday.  The Leopards opened the season ranked 17th in its classification by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.  However, Lorena has opened with a 1-2 record, whipping Florence, 74-21, and losing to Salado, 58-46. and China Spring, 47-34. After Lorena, the Lady Eagles will play host to Round Rock Stony Point at 8 p.m. Friday and Round Rock McNeil at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Georgetown won both sub-varsity contests with Westwood.  Coach Corey Cunningham’s JV improved to 3-0 on the season with a 53-38 victory, while Katie Youngblood’s Freshman Blue (2-1)posted a 42-18 win. Sophomore Madelyne Furr led the JV with 15 points as all nine Lady Eagles’ ended in the scoring column with Brooke White and Taylor Meyners adding eight and seven points, respectively.  Lacy Waring, Ava Linyard, and Caroline Rutledge scored 12, nine, and eight points for the Freshman Blue.

 

In sub-varsity action, this week the JV and Freshman Blue play at 6:30 p.m. and 5:15 p .m., respectively, in the main gym against Lorena and Stony Point and will both play McNeil at 4 p.m. against McNeil on Saturday. The Freshman White (0-2) will entertain Lake Belton and China Spring at 6:30 p.m. on Monday and Friday.
