8th Lady Mules vs. Idalou (11-14-2016)
The eighth grade Lady Mules kept their winning record intact by defeating the Idalou Lady Cats Monday evening 36-28. A 10-4 scoring run in the opening quarter gave the Lady Mules they needed for the win.
Idalou reclaimed most of the differential in the second period to trail the Lady Mules 14-12 at the intermission. The Lady Mules did not suffer a lapse in scoring in the second half and scurried away from the Lady Cats.
“This was a good win for us,” said Lady Mule coach Jalissa King. “Idalou is always a strong basketball school, and they played a solid game. It was a close game the entire time. Anahi Barrera played a strong game with 10 rebounds and four assists.”
“Jordan Zapata and Grace Leal each had three steals. The girls worked hard until the very last second.”
Anahi Barrera led the Lady Mules with 16 points and Katelyn Kelly dropped in six points.
The eighth-grade B-Team extended their winning streak to 2-0 by defeating the Lady Cats of Idalou 30-22. The Lady Mules jumped out to a 10-3 lead in the first period and cruised through the next three periods for the win.
Priscilla Medina led the way with 10 points. Anzley Rodriguez and Clara Vara added six points each.
“This was a tough game for our girls,” continued Coach King. “Last year they did not see teams as fundamentally sound as Idalou. They worked hard and played well together.”
The Lady Mules hosted the Littlefield Lady Cats Monday night and will travel to Slaton to play the Slaton Tigerettes November 28.
