Express News #2 Lady Rattlers Still Rolling in District Play

Your Lady Rattlers continue their unbeaten streak in district play, knocking off Churchill and Madison last week.  The Churchill contest was never in doubt, with S Wagner’s 19pts/14reb/4stl/3blk performance leading the way.  C Iwuala added 14pts/5reb/2stl, and K Hawkins, N Wilson and B Bornet each chipped in 5 points.  Hawkins also added 3 steals; final score 53-25.

Madison proved to be something else entirely as the Lady Rattlers got off to a super slow start and the Lady Mavs stayed with them for a 20-20 halftime score.   The third quarter didn’t get any better for the Rattlers, as Madison took a 12-point lead into the fourth on some great three-point shooting.  Thankfully in the fourth quarter the Rattlers came out and dominated, scoring 16 points more than Madison in the quarter to win it 46-42 and keep their streak alive.  C Iwuala led the Lady Rattlers with 14pts/9reb/3blk, and S Wagner had 7pts/16reb.  K Hawkins kept the Rattlers in it early with her energy and defense, and finished with 12pts, tying her season high, and added 3reb/4ast/3stl to round out a very balanced game.
