It was a great night for the Arrows!! The Mansfield Tigers rolled into town to take on the Arrows on the hardwood, but they found the home team to be a more than formidable opponent.
After a slow start the Lady Arrows turned up the heat. The first quarter ended with the Lavaca leading 7-3. But a solid defense turned to fast break opportunities and the Lady Arrows went into halftime up 23-5. First half saw 2 fast breaks from Hope Headley, 2 from Sierra Lamb and another from Skylar Hyatt. BethAnn May was strong down in the low post. Shailey Rudd and Amaya Mendez add 4 more 3’s off the bench. By time the smoke had settled the Lady Arrows won 56-23.
Then it was time for the boys to hold court. They picked up where the girl left off. Strong defense led to break away points. Strong play down in the paint from Cayden Hearn, Jordan Fenner, and Matt Melton. Mark Miller had a great game down low as well as beyond the arch. Tyler Armistead, Andrew Wright, and Jayger Wagner frustrated the Tiger offense all evening. The Arrows took a 36-21 lead into halftime and when all was said and done the Arrows had won the game 73-50. The top Arrow of the night was Matt Melton with 20 points.
This is going to be a great season. If you missed the game tonight, you wont want to make a habit of it, because these Arrow teams are fun to watch.
