Arrows blast Comets 54-36Published 10:38am Wednesday, December 19, 2012
The Hillcrest Comets could not overcome the sharp three point shooting of the visiting Ashby girls as the Arrows took home a 54-36 Little Eight Conference victory Tuesday.
Both teams were still in search for their first win of the season as the Arrows jumped out to a 32-19 lead at the half.
Hillcrest tighten their defense in the second half, but the damage had already been done as Ashby left the court with the win.
“Ashby played more aggressively than we did,” Comets coach Charlie Brue said. “They were able to hit six three point shots and put us out of the game.”
Madison Van Santen led the Arrows with 14 points, while Cassandra Jordan chipped in 12 points and four rebounds. Abbigail Ras was also in double figures with 10.
Kelsey Nersten and Abbe Monacelli each had 12 points for the Comets.
The Comets will now go on break and will be back in action Jan. 8 at Brandon-Evansville in a 7:30 p.m. LEC battle, while the Arrows will host the Hancock Owls Friday at 6:15 p.m.
