Pantherettes Lasso the Lady Broncos

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

A smothering Pantherette defense limited points and offensive opportunities for the Mansfield Legacy Lady Broncos on Tuesday evening at the Sandra Meadows Arena on the DHS campus.

At the end of the first period the Pantherettes had a 31-6 lead and would continue the defensive pressure and offensive onslaught to defeat the Lady Broncos 72-21.

Legacy came in with an overall record of 6-6 against the 13-1 Pantherettes in the first game of 5-5A district action.

Legacy entered the game coming off a 67-33 win against Lake Worth on December 6, while the Pantherettes defeated North Crowley on December 9 by a score of 61-47.

Leading scorer for the Pantherettes was sophomore guard Airel Atkins with 20 points, followed by senior guard Morgan Bolton with 13 and junior post Antiona Robinson with 11. Atkins also led that strong Pantherette defense with 9 steals, with 5 of those coming in the first period. Robinson also came away with 9 rebounds and 2 blocked shots for the game. Bolton contributed 6 steals in a game that saw the Lady Broncos have a difficult time bringing the ball past half court most of the evening.

Leading scorers for the Lady Broncos were Rylie Morrison and Danielle Walters with 6 points each and Taryn Johnson with 5 points.

Next up for the Pantherettes are the Lady Longhorns of Cedar Hill on Friday, December 16 at 7:30pm at Cedar Hill High School.
