Stonewall teams strong in openers

Stonewall — The Stonewall girls and boys basketball teams opened their 2013-14 basketball campaigns with a pair of impressive victories over Coleman Friday night in the Murphy-Roberts Gymnasium.

In the first game, the Lady Longhorns jumped out quickly and never looked back in a 60-32 victory. They forced 32 turnovers and blew the game open in the third quarter, outscoring Coleman 24-3. 

In the boys game, Stonewall cruised past the Wildcats, 55-18. The hosts picked up the defensive pressure during the third and fourth quarters, as they held Coleman to only two points in the entire second half.


Stonewall 60, Coleman 32

Stonewall got on the board very quickly, as freshman Taylor Barrett drained a 3-point shot just 10 seconds into the game. Coleman’s first score came at the 6:15 mark after two free throws by Geneva Owens. Stonewall’s lone senior, Shaina Bills, scored at the 6:00 mark to put the Lady Longhorns up 5-2. Over the next two and a half minutes, Stonewall could not get a basket to fall, but the SHS defense forced five Coleman turnovers. 

With 3:30 on the clock, Sarah Monday grabbed an offensive rebound and scored for a 7-2 Stonewall lead. After another Coleman turnover, a Mackenzie Davis 3-pointer extended Stonewall’s lead to 10-2 with 3:23 to go in the quarter. Monday scored again with 40 seconds on the clock for a 12-2 advantage. Shaelee Gardner scored another bucket for Coleman to make it 12-4 after one period.

Barrett scored the first basket of the second quarter for Stonewall at the 7:23 mark for a 14-4 lead. After forcing another turnover, Bills knocked down a three to push the lead to 17-4. Owens went to the free-throw line twice over the next minute and hit three of four to cut the Stonewall lead back to 10 at 17-7. After a Stonewall turnover, Owens found Gardner for a bucket to bring Coleman within eight at 17-9 with 5:55 to go in the half.

  • 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.
