Ever since Magazine lost to Mansfield and Acorn in the first round of conference play, they’ve been making everyone else pay the price. Call it revenge ball or taking out their frustrations for those losses. One thing is for sure though. They’re focused on some second-round payback. On Tuesday, January 19th the Lady Rattlers continued their roll over opponents in a lopsided 67-33 victory over the Union Christian Lady Eagles.
The Lady Rattlers strolled into Union Christians gym and strolled back out in dominant fashion. Points were the name of the game and Magazine seemed to have a competition amongst themselves as to who could score more with five players scoring in the double digits. Jordyn Krigbaum was the B52 for Magazine as she dropped bombs on Union Christian to lead the team with 16 points. Kylie Robinson came up just one point short of robbing the points leader in the game position from Kringbaum as she came up with 15 points.
Elizabeth Greek lived up to her name on the court as the Queen Goddess plucked the Lady Eagles for 13 points in the game. Rounding out the points for Magazine was the fearsome fangs, Kiara Vasquez and Tanna Thomas, who both raked in 11 points in the game. The win brings the Lady Rattlers to an overall record of 8-5. With their second round of conference play, the Lady Rattlers will start with Lavaca on Friday, January 22nd. Magazine isn’t taking any chances against anyone. The Lady Rattlers stand at 3rd place in the conference with a 4-2 record and are zoned in on conference perfection for the rest of the season. Magazine will host the 2A West Regionals at the end of the regular season and what would be better than going into the tournament as #1.
