Pantherettes Pounce on Lady Longhorns

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

The Lady Longhorns kept it close, up until the halfway point of the first quarter. With 4:19 remaining in the first, the Lady Longhorns pulled within one point as Duncanville led 7-6. But, the Pantherettes took over from that point and played perhaps their best defensive game of the year.

ettes_ch_002The Pantherettes only allowed one more bucket the first period, and kept the defensive pressure on to end the first period with a 17-8 lead. The Lady Longhorns could never get an offensive rhythm established as the Pantherette defense pressured Cedar Hill the full length of the court, and when the Lady Longhorns tried to get their half court offense off the ground, Duncanville shut it down.

By the final buzzer Duncanville had more than doubled Cedar Hill’s point total to take a 69-33 victory.

The Pantherettes managed 18 steals for the game and out rebounded the Lady Longhorns 22-14. The defense allowed only Lady Longhorn to reach double-digit scoring, with Senior guard Kendra Howard scoring 13 points.

ettes_ch_003For the Pantherettes, four players scored double-digits. Ariel Atkins with 20 points, Tasia Foman scored 17 points, Kiara Perry with 14 points, and Antoina Robinson scored 10 points. Seven of the eleven players on the Pantherette roster scored.

Perry and Destiny Means led with 6 rebounds each, while Atkins had 4 steals and Perry, Foman, and Robinson had 4 steals each.

Next up for the Pantherettes is a road trip to Grand Prairie to take on the Lady Gophers, before returning home to face Mansfield, and then the last game of district play is a road game against the Lady of Eagles of Desoto.
