Lady Trojans Dominate Hopkins Central, Fall to Madisonville

But the WC girls fell to one of the top teams in the region on Saturday, a strong Madisonville-North squad.

Webster is back in action Dec. 17-19 in Owensboro, participating in the Daviess County Lady Panther Holiday Classic.

That first win of the season for the young Lady Trojans came just at the right time Tuesday night. After dropping their first two games, the WCHS girls blitzed an out-manned Hopkins County Central squad in Trojan gym.

The Lady Trojans controlled the game from the opening tip, reeling off 20 unanswered points. Most coming of easy layup off Webster’s skin-tight full-court press.

“Central is rebuilding and we’re rebuilding so it was a good test for us,” WCHS head coach Christina Whitsell stated. “Our kids did a good job of getting up and down the floor and we think we’re pretty effective in the transition game.”

Cental didn’t get on the scoreboard until 1:26 left in the first quarter when Taylor Childress sank a pair of free throws. Webster closed out the first quarter with a commanding 24-3 lead. Freshman point guard Darrian McNary scored the first six points of the game and then Mayce Davis, another WC freshman, came off the bench and scored five straight.

“We did a nice job with the press, something that we added this summer. I think that really got the girls in the flow of the game and active on defense,” Whitsell added.

Webster extended its lead to 41-12 at the intermission and put it’s game on cruise control the rest of the way.

McNary led a very balanced attack with 17 points while fellow freshman Mariah Herrera was also in double figures with 12 points. Hayleigh Dame, WC’s inside force, turned in a solid effort with 12 points and eight rebounds.

Davis fnished with eight points while sophomore guard Kolbi Edens chipped in with seven, including the squad’s only 3-pointer. Raven Baxter, Lauren Grant and Bailey Townsend all scored five points while Bra Copeland added two free throws.

The game was marred by fouls as the Lady Trojans attempted an incredible 52 free throw attempts. The hit just 30. Central, coached by former WCHS great Paula Carver, was 9-of -18 from the charity stripe.

Webster had little trouble in the jayvee game Tuesday night, topping the Lady Storm 36 -23.Christian Papineau paced the attack with nine points while Bailey Townsend finished with seven points followed by five from Hayleigh Dame. Raven Baxter, Lauren Grant, Brea Copeland all tossed in four points while Maddie Duncan added one field goal and Mayce Davis hit one free throw.

It was a rematch of last year’s Regional semi-final game, and the results were the same. A Lady Maroon victory during the annual Messenger Tip-Off Classic held at Trojan gym Saturday afternoon.

Although most of the faces are different from last year, the Lady Maroons withstood a furious start by WCHS to cruise to the victory with a strong second half.

The Lady Trojans used it’s full court press to jump out to an 8-2 lead in the opening minutes of the first quarter. But Madisonville freshman Punkin McNary, who led all scorers with 29 points, scored 11 straight points in the final 5:01 of the first quarter to push North to the lead at 18-15 at the first break.

Both teams struggled offensively in the opening minutes of the second period until WC freshman Darrian McNary sank a driving layup followed by a rebound and putback from Brooke Ross that trimmed the lead to just two points, 21-19.

That would be as close as the Lady Trojans would get the rest of the way as North’s McNary sparked a 19-4 run with three straight layups. Darrin McNary was the only Lady Trojan in double figures as she finished with 10 points.
