Congratulations to the Lavaca Lady Arrows for advancing to the 2A-West Regional Semi-final game and qualifying for the Arkansas 2A State Tournament. The Lady Arrows definitely flexed their muscles tonight in Danville against the Decatur Lady Bulldogs. The Lady Arrows came into the game as the number one seed after a huge win against the Danville Lady Little Johns. Decatur came in hoping to end a 2 game slide, losing to Cotter and Eureka Springs. Tonight though was all about the Lady Arrows!
Coach Wyles had told me that the keys to the game was to “Play with great defensive intensity…and to be very efficient on offense.” Tonight, Coach Wyles got exactly what he wanted. The Lady Arrows held Decatur to 32 points and pounded the ball into the low post scoring 57. Lavaca had two players over 20 points. BethAnn May led the team with 21 points and Skylar Hyatt added another 20. Sierra Lamb also had a solid game with 11 points.
“I’m extremely proud of these girls for qualifying for the state tournament next week, but our mind is on winning a regional championship this week.“ CoachWyles
Coach Wyles gave his assessment of the game, “I thought the girls did a great job carrying out our game plan and points of emphasis for the game. We executed really well on offense, continued playing with a defensive mindset, and rebounded extremely well tonight. I thought Beth Ann and Skylar did a fantastic job controlling the paint, combining for 41 of our 57 points tonight. I’m extremely proud of these girls for qualifying for the state tournament next week, but our mind is on winning a regional championship this week.” The next time the Lady Arrows take the court will be at 4PM on Friday in the Semi Final Game. They will play the winner of the Flippin-Hector game which will be Thursday at 4pm.
