The Lavaca Lady Arrows got redemption tonight against the Danville Lady Little Johns in a game for the 2A-4 District Championship. Danville came into the District Tournament as the Conference Champions, having run the table at 12-0. For the Lady Arrows, they came in as the two seed and Conference Runners-up having only two losses, both to Danville. The night belonged to the Ladies of Lavaca!! The game went into halftime with Danville leading by five. But Lavaca came out and changed the game. Sierra Lamb hit a big three to put Lavaca ahead and it was game on. Defensively, Lavaca was stellar. They never let Danville get comfortable and in the end the lady Arrows were able to gut out a two point win 30-28. Coach Wyles was extremely pleased with the hustle and defensive play of his Lady Arrows. After the game he told me, that it was a great defensive battle. In fact he did not substitute players all night. This game was close, but the girls never relented, they never gave up, they just kept digging.
Lavaca will go to regionals as a one seed and will be playing Decatur at 4pm on 2/20. Regional games will be played at Danville. Come out and watch these ladies play, you will not be disappointed. The Lady Arrows are bringing a high level a play and a lot of confidence into the Regional Tournament.
