JV Lady Mules vs. Lubbock Roosevelt (12-16-2014)
The JV Lady Mules utilized tough defense to rattle the Lubbock Roosevelt Lady Eagles Tuesday night in Acuff. The Lady Mules jumped out to a 13-2 first period advantage and sailed to a 36-20 defeat of the Eagles.
“Our defense was to much for them to regain their composure in the first quarter,” said Lady Mule coach Edie Niblett. “We only had four ladies scoring but everybody contributed on defense to help win the game.”
“This is a very unselfish team and they pass to the person that needs the ball. Brittney Mendoza and Desi Gutierrez were hot from the perimeter. Marissa Reyes and Jasmine Garza scored in the lane. It was a true team effort and a great way to go into the Christmas Holidays.”
The Lady Mules are now 10-4 on the season.
Both teams scored eight points in the second period and the Lady Mules led 21-10 at the half. The Lady Mules continued to out score the Eagles 6-4 in the third period and 9-6 in the final frame.
Mendoza led the Lady Mules with 12 points and Gutierrez dropped in 11. Garza added eight points and Reyes finished with five.
The Lady Mules will return to action after the Holidays by hosting the Bovina Fillies January 6 and will open district on the road in Shallowater against more Fillies.
