7th Lady Mules vs. Idalou (11-14-2016)
The seventh grade Lady Mules hosted the always tough Idalou Lady Cats Monday afternoon. Before the dust settled the Lady Cats may have wished they had stayed east of Lubbock.
The Lady Mules fell behind 6-2 but came roaring back to take a 13-8 lead by the end of the first period. The Lady Mule defense caused several turnovers that were converted to points and rolled on for a 36-28 win.
Natalie Ambriz and Paige Parker throttles must have been stuck wide open as the two girls raced up and down the floor daring the Lady Cats to keep up with the Lady Mules.
Ambriz had scored seven points by the end of the first period, and Parker had six. Both girls shared the ball with teammates as the Lady Mules zipped up and down the floor.
Parker broke the scoring ice for the Lady Mules with a steal and a drive to the hoop with just over three minutes left in the first period. At the two-minute mark, she gave a head fake and drove to the hoop for her second basket.
Ambriz then caught fire and drove coast-to-coast for a layup with 1:40 still left in the first period. Thirty-one seconds later she was again laying the ball up on the rim. Ambriz made her third layup of the quarter with 43 seconds left in the first period.
Parker drove the baseline for a hoop with just under 20 seconds to go in the opening quarter. Idalou fouled Ambriz as she attempted to put back a missed shot with time running out. She made one of her penalty shots.
Ambriz finished the game with 20 points. Parker made all 14 of her points in the first three quarters. Kayla Soto chipped in two points in the fourth period.
The Lady Mules hosted the Dimmitt Bobbies Monday night. They will travel to Slaton after Thanksgiving to play the Tigerettes.
