Lady Rebs fall to Valley View, advance at Kell

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Weather forced Highland to consolidate the boys' and girls' games against Valley View to Jan. 5, except for the seventh-graders who had their games cancelled. Swifton's Kell Classic games were delayed and will be spread across two weeks, because of the cold weather.

The championship game will be held on Jan. 16.

Both the Blazers and Lady Blazers found the baskets at the new A.L. Hutson Memorial Center to be very inviting and generous.

Dustin Jones scored 18 points, Kaleb Hendrix added 15 and the Blazer team hit six 3-pointers to beat the Rebels 71-40.

The Valley View women had 10 threes and Amy Philamlee had 35 points to nab a conference win over Highland, 67-49.

The Lady Rebels rebounded on Jan. 6 at the Kell Classic, beating Hoxie 58-35.

The Rebels had to wait until Jan. 9 to play their second round game in Swifton, losing to Hoxie 61-56.

In a game that saw 13 lead changes, the Rebels had a 51-50 advantage over Hoxie with just over two minutes to play.

Zach Crisler hit a bucket to retake the lead and he and his brother, Cade Crisler, made six of eight free throws to secure the win.

The game was tied 13-all after one, but the Rebels took a 27-23 lead into halftime.

The Mustangs went on a 18-9 third-quarter run to get up by five, but started the fourth with three turnovers allowing Highland to go up 45-44 midway through the fourth.

Brad Harris, playing his first game since mid-December, tied Kenny Nicholson for team scoring with 13 points each.

The Lady Rebels scored 19 points to Hoxie's six in both the first and second periods and Alex Issacs accounted for all of Highland's scoring in the third quarter to give the Lady Rebs a 46-31 lead.

Highland's defense held the Lady Mustangs to two field goals in the fourth.

Issacs led the team with 24 and Bobi Jo Cooper followed with 18.

After playing to a 14-14 tie in the first, the Lady Blazers hit four treys in the second and the Lady Rebels were three-of-14 giving Valley View a 30-21 halftime lead.

Highland didn't score until midway through the third and the Lady Blazers increased their advantage to 43-29 after three.

The Lady Rebels shooting improved in the fourth knocking down 20 points, but so did Valley View, who added 24.

Issacs had 16 points and Cooper put in 12 to lead the team.

The Rebs took a 7-6 lead with three minutes gone in the game, but the Blazers went on a 16-1 run to finish the first up, 22-8.

Donnie French scored 11 of Highland's 13 second quarter points.

Valley View scored 16 for a 38-19 halftime lead.

A trey by Rebels Jason Long and one by Nicholson kept Valley View from extending their lead, finishing the third up 53-35.

French led the team with 15 and Nicholson had 10.
