Lady Falcons shut down Lady Mountaineers

(Continued)

McALESTER —

A free throw from Amber Black finally got Brushy on the board with 2:16 left in the first, but Howard answered immediately, putting back an offensive rebound. Howard then stole back-to-back passes, the first of which led to a fastbreak bucket from Erving lead.

Howard ended the first quarter with a deflection that Cox turned into a fastbreak layup and a 22-1 lead.

“They were all over us, and we’re not quite used to that yet,” Brushy coach Greg McCoy said.

“When they attacked us, we kind of went into a little shell.”

The Lady Falcons could’ve stuck with their 1-3-1 for the entire game. But with the game basically over after the first six minutes, Mitchell switched to a halfcourt defense in the second quarter.

The new defense didn’t bother the Lady Falcons one bit, as Cox stole a pass and then grabbed a deflection on Brushy’s first two possessions of the second.

Cox scored on the fastbreak both times to put Frink-Chambers up 26-1.

Makayla Cole’s free throw ended the Lady Falcons’ 10-0 run, but they simply went on another. Erin Kelley hit a jump shot, Brooklyn Slater scored off an offensive rebound, Lynnsey Davis  scored off a pass from Howard, then Kelley scored twice off steals for a 36-2 lead.

Brushy ended the first half with its first solid defensive moment, with Cole picking off a pass that later sent Katelyn Baggs to the foul line. Baggs made both free throws, but by that point the score had become so lopsided that the clock ran nonstop — other than for an injury timeout — through the entire second half.

Howard and Eaton each scored 8 for Frink-Chambers, and Cox and Kelley each scored 6. By the end of the game Mitchell had subbed in her entire bench, getting at least 2 points from 10 different Lady Falcons.
