Jr Lady Pirates Forge Ahead With Win Over Hackett


On Monday night, the Cedarville Jr Lady Pirates and the Hackett Jr Lady Hornets hit the court running faster than a water balloon shooting off the end of a water hose. The Jr Lady Pirates have only lost four games this season so Hackett knew they were going to have to bring their A-game. The first quarter had each team’s defense shutting down the other’s offense with the game barely getting off the ground with a score of 4-3 Cedarville going into the second quarter.

And that’s when the Lady Pirates opened the flood gates. They put up 13 more points before going into halftime while completely shutting down Hackett with a score of 17-3. After a halftime pep talk by Coach Broc Adams, the Lady Hornets were re-energized and ready to ball. Both teams kicked things into overdrive and the race was on. By the time the dust had settled, it was the Cedarville Jr Lady Pirates who crossed the finish line first with a final score of 27-19.

Cedarville’s Rylee Partain and Makalie Carter have been running the Jr High ship all season with their hotter than asphalt in the middle of August court play. Monday the girls earned 12 and 9 points respectively. Serenity Johnson jumped into the action with 4 points and Katelynn Moore-Guerra logged 2. Hackett’s Aaliyah Escoffier was the Queen Hornet with 8 points in the match followed by Alex Bunch who was hard to catch with 5, shooting star Alona Rothwell who netted 4, and Brooklyn Decker who lit up the board with 2.

The Lady Hornets are gearing up for their second battle with the Booneville Lady Bearcats tonight at Booneville. This win put Cedarville tied for second in conference play and with a win this Friday night over the Lady Little Johns at Danville, the Jr Lady Pirates will move on to be numero uno.
