The Chapel Hill Lady Devils won this past Monday while traveling to New Boston. The Lady Devils got off to an unusual slow start at New Boston. The defense wasn’t quite there and missing some normal shots for them. New Boston won the first quarter 13-19 to take the lead, but that would soon come to a swift end. The Chapel Hill defense clamped down and the offense started to click and the next thing you know it was all Lady Devils. Chapel Hill didn’t give up a basket to New Boston and all the Lady Lions could muster were three three throws in the second quarter as Chapel Hill won the quarter 21-3 and took the lead 34-22 at half-time.
The #15 Mount Pleasant Tigers hosted the Oklahoma City Storm on Friday night for their first home game and the start of the 2020-2021 season. After their record-breaking season last year, the start of this season has been much anticipated with four of the Tigers’ starting five returning as well as many of the reserves. Senior and sophomore standouts Zaveion Okoh and Payton, who are also cousins, paced the Tigers with a combined 44 points and connected on several alley-oop slams.
After several years of not making the playoffs, the Chapel Hill Lady Devils had a phenomenal season this fall. Not only did they make the playoffs, but tied for second in district.
Tonight we struggled early and could not get any long runs of success to go our way. The season is just starting and tonight exposed key areas where we will have to improve as a team. Offensively, we have to be strong with the basketball and make sure we don’t cripple ourselves with careless decisions. Defensively, we had to make adjustments throughout the night and credit goes to the girls for being able to adapt on the fly. We hope to see everyone next Monday as we continue to build.
