Konawa girls cruise past Coalgate

Coalgate —      The Konawa Lady Tigers jumped all over the Coalgate High girls team in the opening period en route to a 59-37 thrashing of the Lady Wildcats here Friday night.

     Fueled by an aggressive full-court press and a harassing defense, Konawa was up by 11 at the end of a quarter, 16-5.

     "We opened with a press and constant pressure," said Konawa coach Gordon Garner. "We had to do something. We're not very large with our two five-footers, but I was pleased with the way we played."

     By halftime, it was a 31-21 Konawa lead. The second was Coalgate's best quarter by far, scoring 16 points, or exactly the same number of points the Konawa defense allowed the Lady Wildcats in the entire second half.

     Konawa scored another 28 points in the second half to win easily.

     Brooke Snow's 20-point scoring output, combined with Brittany Galimba's 15 points and eight steals, kept Coalgate at bay on its home court.

     Snow didn't just score, she poured in a dozen of her points from behind the arc on four 3-pointers.

     Erin Isaacs and Danielle Khoury limited the Lady Wildcats offensively with a half dozen rebounds apiece.  

     The win was the fifth against eight losses for Konawa, which enters tournament play Monday against Tupelo in the Tupelo Invitational.

  • Whitworth resets Ada's 3-point record

    As senior Walker Whitworth was bombing in the final five 3-point shots of his remarkable Ada High career, he was resetting the school’s triples record at 151. Across the way at the A-Town Barber Shop, barber Erick Gray did not even know he owned the record of 146, much less that someone was breaking it.
