WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (1/16/13) - The WCHS Lady Trojans reeled off three victories last week including their All “A” Regional opener against Trigg County Monday night.

Webster also dropped a slugfest to arch-rival Henderson County, the only team that has defeated the Lady Trojans this season. WCHS now stands 15-2 on the season.

It might be a state record of some type ... certainly a school record at the least. The WCHS Lady Trojan defense allowed just one field goal in the entire game while thrashing Trigg County in the opening round of the Region 2 All “A” Classic Monday night in Dixon.

Trigg’s only field goal of the game came at the 7:01 mark of the first quarter. By that time, Webster had jumped out to a 17-2 lead at the end of the first quarter and a commanding 44-4 bulge at intermission.

The ‘mercy rule’ was implemented the entire second half with a running clock the rest of the way.

Webster put 11 girls in the scoring column with Mariah Herrera and Hayleigh Dame leading the way with 10 points each. Kaylee Duncan added nine points, Darrian McNary eight, Kristen Keeney and Macye Davis six points apiece and five points from Kolbi Edens. Christian Papineau and Hannah Pritchett scored four points each while Georgia Keeney and Bailey Townsend tacked on two points each.

Webster will travel to Crittenden County on Thursday for a semi-final game against Caldwell County. The Lady Tigers defeated host Crittenden County 55-39 in their opener on Monday.

The Lady Trojans enjoyed one of their best shooting nights of the season en route to an easy win over Christian County Monday night in Dixon. Webster nailed 31-of-69 attempts from the field plus 3-of-9 3-pointers in the dominating victory. WC’s only setback was 11-of-22 accuracy from the free throw line.

The Lady Trojans earned an 18-11 lead at the first break and then broke the game open in the second quarter with a 25-13 surge, highlighted by a 11-2 run in the opening minutes of the stanza.

Mariah Herrera, who led all scorers with 21 points, fueled the run with six straight points. She also had a game-high eight rebounds. Darrian McNary contributed another solid, all-around game with 14 points, six rebounds and two assists. Kolbi Edens finished with 11 points, five rebounds and a team-high five steals. Leading 43-24 at halftime, the WCHS girls continued the pressure in the third quarter to grab a 19-12 scoring advantage heading into the final eight minutes. Christian Papineau added five points and seven rebounds while Bailey Townsend finished with five points and three boards.

Hallie Gibson scored four points, followed by four points and four rebounds each from Georgia Keeney and Hannah Pritchett. Kaylee Duncan also scored four points while Kristen Keeney and Hayleigh Dame finished with two points apiece. Webster held a strong 47-33 rebounding edge and forced 16 CCHS turnovers.

The Lady Trojans jumped on Daviess County from the opening tip Tuesday night in Dixon and never let up, sending the Lady Panthers back to Owensboro with a stinging defeat. It was the second win in as many days for the WCHS girls. The Webster full-court press forced four straight turnovers on DC’s first four possessions of the game and gained a quick 5-0 lead.

That advantage grew to 20-12 at the end of the first quarter. Mariah Herrera, Kolbi Edens and Darrian McNary all had 3-pointers in the opening frame as the Lady Trojans nailed seven 3-pointers in the win. The Lady Panthers opened the second quarter with its only offensive run of the game, a 12-5 surge that cut the WCHS lead to 20-16.

But another Edens 3-pointer, the second of four ‘treys’ in the game for the WC senior, jump-started a 11-0 run. Webster closed out the period with another 8-0 blitz to pull away to a 44-20 bulge at halftime.

Herrera led all scorers with 24 points, 20 coming in the first half along with a team-high five steals and six assists.

Edens added 13 in the half and finished with 16 points plus four rebounds. McNary was also in double figures with 11 points plus four steals. Webster never let up in the second half, out-scoring the Lady Panthers 19-12 in the third quarter and owning a 16-11 advantage in the final eight minutes.

Christian Papineau added nine points in the victory while Kristen Keeney and Hayleigh Dame finished with six points each. Dame also had five rebounds. Hannah Pritchett, Bailey Townsend, Hallie Gibson and Macye Davis added two points apiece while Georgia Keeney netted one free throw to complete the scoring. Webster forced a season-high 31 turnovers by the Lady Panthers and held a 29-24 rebounding edge.

Henderson County 52

For the second time this season, Henderson County outlasted the Lady Trojans, only the second loss of the season for Webster. Henderson, which boosted its record to 12-1 overall and 3-0 in district action, had beaten the Lady Trojans by three points in December in Dixon.

Way too many turnovers and very poor shooting was the key in Webster’s loss Friday night in Henderson.

The Lady Trojans committed 26 turnovers and managed just 13-of-57 shooting, along with only 1-of-7 from behind the 3-point arc and 21-for-39 from the free throw line. Henderson didn’t fare much better from the field, hitting just 15-of-63 attempts from the field and 19-for-36 free throws in the slugfest. The WC girls did hold a strong 44-33 rebounding edge but the inability to put the ball in the basket was a key.

Henderson also took care of the basketball much better this time around. The Lady Colonels committed 24 turnovers in the first meeting of the Second Region giants, but in Friday’s contest, Henderson sliced that number to just 14. Webster’s ice-cold shooting began from the on-set, falling behind 12-3 at the first break. That proved to be the margin Henderson needed for the victory.

The Lady Trojans rallied in the second quarter behind eight points from Mariah Herrera. She finished with 19 points plus eight rebounds. WCHS out-scored Henderson 17-11 in the period to trim the lead to 23-20. HCHS used a 13-12 scoring edge in the third quarter to gain a 36-32 lead heading into the final eight minutes.

Darrian McNary added 15 points in the loss, grabbing six rebounds as well. 6-foot-2 sophomore Kristen Keeney came off the bench to score four points plus a season-high 11 rebounds. Bailey Townsend added four points and three boards while Macye Davis also scored four points. Christian Papineau completed the scoring with two points and five rebounds. Hayleigh Dame added four rebounds while Kolbi Edens added six boards but was held scoreless in the contest.
