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.
