EARLSBORO – The Maud Lady Tigers had rhythm offensively from start to finish and beat the Macomb Lady Hornets 55-33 in the consolation round of the Jim Walling Classic Wednesday.
“We played well defensively the whole game,” Maud coach Bruce Harrell said. “Offensively we played better as the game went on. We had a slow start but started to shoot the ball better later in the game.”
This was a rematch of a game earlier in the season. Maud was able to come out on top both games.
“Macomb was a team we only beat by two a month and a half ago. We have a couple more games to play this week, with the way the way the tournament was re-scheduled. Now we just need to get a couple more wins.”
For the first game all season that coach Harrell was able to get all his players some quality minutes.
“In the past we've struggled with numbers,” he said. “Last year we played with seven girls. This year we have 15 and zero seniors. This was the first game we got all 15 in and playing five straight games, that's a good thing.”
Maud's Kaylee Sanders led all scorers with 20 points. Jocee Sparks Sparks and Megan Willis chipped in 13 and 11 points respectively.
Macomb's Karina Ramirez and Makenzie Burleson each scored eight points for the Lady Hornets.
