Pantherettes Continue Win Streak

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

The Pantherettes found themselves in unfamiliar territory Friday night against the Lady Longhorns of Cedar Hill. In the second quarter, Duncanville was trailing Cedar Hill. But, before the night was over, Coach Cathy Self-Morgan was celebrating a 62-56 victory, along with the birth of her newest granddaughter. “I’m kind of partial to baby girls,” says Coach Self-Morgan.

It also seems the Pantherettes are partial to doing whatever it takes to win ballgames.

The Pantherettes wrapped up the first quarter with an 18-11 lead off the shooting of Kiara Perry and Morgan Bolton, each scoring 5 points. Perry also provided a fine defensive effort, totaling a steal, a rebound and 3 blocked shots in the quarter.

The Lady Longhorns made an offensive run, taking the lead for a good portion of the second quarter, before Perry (7 points) and Tasia Foman (5 points) spearheaded the comeback to go into the half with a 32-31 lead. Empress Davenport provided 2 points as well as 3 rebounds and a blocked shot in the quarter.

In the third, Perry continued her outstanding offensive effort with 7 points in the quarter, with Davenport and Ariel Atkins providing a rebound, and a blocked shot each to help the Pantherettes go into the final period with a 47-43 lead.

In the fourth, Bolton provided the offensive firepower with 8 points, going 6-6 at the foul line in the quarter and 7-8 from the charity stripe for the night. Perry continued to dominate the boards with 2 more rebounds, along with 2 rebounds from Shannon Franklin.

Duncanville had four scorers in double figures, led by Perry with 21, Foman with 13, Bolton with 14, and Davenport with 13.

For Cedar Hill Courtni Gibson provided 12 points, while Jada Terry had 11 points, and Alecia Smith put in 10 points.

The win keeps the Pantherettes undefeated in district play. Next up for the Pantherettes is the Lady Gophers of Grand Prairie High School at DHS on Tuesday, January 24at 6PM.
