Lady Rams best Jumpertown
The Lady Rams started the season on slightly unsure footing, but got back on track with a 58-44 win over Jumpertown following the Thanksgiving break.
The Vardaman girls traveled to the home of the Cardinals but made the trip worth the miles by bringing home the win. The Lady Rams led 10-7 after the first quarter and extended that to a four-point lead at the break. They gained more ground in the third, outscoring the Lady Cardinals by 10 points and held off a fourth-quarter rally to take the victory.
Coach Deanna Winter is still finding the right mix on the floor and made some adjustments in the game that worked to their advantage.
“We found a few new players who want to play and really got after it,” Winter said.
But even with the win under their belt, Winter is not satisfied and wants her team to continue to grow and improve.
“It was really sloppy,but it’s something to build on,” Winter said.
The Lady Rams were led in scoring by Alaysia Madkins with 16 points and Shylsses Rimmer with 10.
On the boy’s side of the court, the Rams fell to the Cardinals, 69-56, with Michael McKinney leading with 16 points. Quon Cummings posted 13 points and Chico Walker had 12 while Tavis Townsend added ten.
The Lady Rams faced North Pontotoc in the finals of the Myrtle tournament Saturday, nipping at the Lady Vikings’ heels, 24-21 at halftime.
But a big offensive second half saw the Lady Vikings score 37 points in the second half to take the 61-35 win.
The Lady Rams tied things up at 24-all in the third quarter, but the Lady Vikings put pedal to the floor and ran their points up on the board.
Alaysia Madkins led in scoring for Vardaman with 14 points.
Both teams saw their Dec. 10 game against Myrtle cancelled due to the Vardaman Christmas parade but will be back in action Friday hosting Wheeler.
