Improved Hopkinsville Shocks Webster in Basketball Opener

Webster County  57
Hopkinsville        77

It was the season-open for both squads and Hopkinsville looked in mid-season form, using size, speed and good shooting to spoil Webster's opening game victory hopes.

"They've found some girls that can really play and some girls with good size," Whitsell explained.

Hopkinsville grabbed the early lead and never looked back with a 21-12 Advantage at the first break. WC junior Aleshia Stone kept Webster close in the opening stanza with seven points, including one of her two 3-pointers in the contest. She finished with 14 points.

Hopkinsville kept the solid playing going in the second quarter, out-scoring Webster 17 -12 for a 38-24 lead at intermission.

Webster played much better in the second half, trimming the lead to 60-42 after three quarters of play. But the Lady Tigers used its balanced attack to outscore WCHS 17-15 for the victory.

Webster's freshman point guard Darrian McNary led all scorers with 22 points, 13 coming in the second half. Freshman running mate Mariah Herrera was also in double figures with 10 points. Brea Copeland, Brooke Ross and Hayleigh Dame added two points each.

Hopkinsville had four girls in double figures with Tootie Williams' 18 leading the way. The homestanding Lady Tigers also claimed the junior varisty game 45-33.

Hopkinsville led from start to finish, including a 13-5 edge at the first break and 21-12 at intermission. Hannah Horback paced the Webster attack with 11 points. Lauren Grant added seven points while Mayce Davis finished with five points. Raven Baxter added four with Bailey Townsend and Brea Copeland added three points each.
