Lady Hatchets defeated Vincennes Lincoln for third win

VINCENNES — The Lady Hatchets improved their record to 3-1 and 1-1 in conference play by defeating Vincennes Lincoln, 46-34 on Tuesday night.

The Lady Hatchets got off to a quick start leading 15-9 at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, WHS had a difficult time finding the bucket only scoring nine points and went into halftime with a 24-15 lead.

In the third quarter, the Alice’s outscored the Hatchets, 11-10, but the Hatchets were able to hang on to the lead to close out the victory.

“We did not rebound the basketball very well at all in the first half. We were giving too many wide open set shots for Vincennes, and they knocked those shots down,” said WHS coach Gretchen Miles.

“In the second half, the kids really locked it in on the defensive end of limiting Vincennes to one shot and rebounding the first miss. Ally got off to a hot offensive start and they definitely helped with momentum in the first half of play.

She was able to get the ball to put her in a position to score, whether it was inside or out around the perimeter.

“Jenna and Emily continue to improve with handling the basketball and getting the ball where it needs to go, and being on attack mode going north and south and staying away from going east to west. Audra and Cheyenne continue to battle inside and do a lot of the little things that may not show up in the stat column, but are key areas for us in order to win.”

WHS was led in scoring by Ally Hunsinger with 25 points and 11 rebounds, Cheyenne Jones with eight points and seven rebounds, Lupe Perez with five points and four assists, Jenna Johnson with four points and Emily Mahan and Carrie Lane with two points each.

In the JV game, the Lady Hatchets improved to 3-0 by defeating Vincennes 34-24.

Izzy Waggoner led all scoreless with 15 points, followed by McKenzie Norton with seven.

The Lady Hatchets will travel to Barr-Reeve today. JV start time is at 6 p.m.
