Stonewall pair leads East girls to victory on own home court

Stonewall —



Two Stonewall girls basketball players — Breann Gipson and Haley Snell — made the most of their final game on the home floor Wednesday night.

The pair had only two points each at the half, but they ignited a second-half comeback for the East in posting a 48-41 victory over the West in the 40th annual Ada News All-Star Classic at Stonewall High School’s Murphy-Roberts Gymnasium.

Gipson tossed in 12 points to go with six rebounds in earning Most Valuable Player honors, while Snell chipped in 11 points to go with seven boards, three steals and a pair of assists in helping the East to the victory.

The East squad fell into an early 12-0 hole, was down 12-2 after one quarter and trailed 21-15 at halftime. However, a huge 21-5 third quarter enabled the East to rally and take control. The West, which trailed 36-26 heading into the fourth, did make it interesting down the stretch and cut the lead to four but got no closer.

Trailing 24-19, the East climbed back into contention as Gipson nailed 1-of-2 free shots and executed a layup with 5:08 to go in the third to make it 24-22.

After a layup by Byng’s Raetchel Gray pushed the West lead back to four, the East scored 14 unanswered points for the 10-point advantage after three periods.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Latta’s McKenzi Lamb and Snell gave the East a 28-26 edge with 3:51 remaining in the third. Consecutive layups by Tupelo’s Kate McCoy and Snell, along with a pair of jumpers from Allen’s Beyla Skelton, gave the East the 10-point margin. Snell assisted on both of Skelton’s buckets during that span.
