Double dip at Diamond Hill

Lady Rams cruise to 71-19 win over Lady Eagles; Rams have way with Eagles, 84-35, in 6-3A action

STAFF REPORTS

FORT WORTH – It was status-quo for both the Mineral Wells Lady Rams and Rams basketball teams Tuesday night in District 6-3A action at Fort Worth Diamond Hill.

The Lady Rams ran past the Lady Eagles, 71-19, to complete a district sweep, and the Rams also notched their second win in as many games

over the Eagles in an 84-35 victory.

With the wins, both teams will go into Friday’s district games at Springtown with second place in the 6-3A standings on the line.

For the MWHS ladies a win over Springtown, which defeated the Lady Rams by just six points in the first half of district play, would put MWHS alone in second place with one game remaining in district play.

The Lady Rams close the district slate against Kennedale, while Springtown finishes with Diamond Hill, making Friday’s game that much more important.

In the win Tuesday at Diamond Hill, sophomore point guard Natalie Ragland led the Lady Rams with 21 points, while senior guard Courtney Peña added 15.

“The girls played a great game offensively,” Lady Rams head coach Leslie Holman said. “We had an awesome night shooting the ball.

“If we can continue to shoot with that much confidence in our remaining games we will be fine. Overall, it was a great win for the team and now we can look ahead to Springtown.”

The Lady Rams jumped out to a 21-3 lead in the first quarter an built a 36-7 cushion at the half. The Lady Rams went on a 20-5 run in the third period to take a 56-12 lead into the fourth quarter.

Also scoring for the Lady Rams were Ashley Valdez with eight points, Madie Pappas with six, Kera Harrison with five, Tabby Santibanez and Riley Bullock, each with four, and Pam Hopkins, Katie Rivera, Scarlett Eaton and Ashlynn Robinson, each with two.
