|Girls Basketball: A win in 10-4A opener by Scott Farrell||Comment (0)|
Hartley Hobson scored a double-double, and HP held Carrollton Smith scoreless for the first few minutes of the second half as the Lady Scots (8-5, 1-0) won both teams' District 10-4A opener at Highlander Fieldhouse.
Hobson scored four field goals, including a three-pointer, and four free throws to score 12 of HP's 26 first-half points. The Lady Scots ran off a 7-2 run after taking a 13-11 lead after the first quarter, and their transition game provided a handful of easy baskets. HP held Smith to only two field goals in the second quarter, and had a 26-16 halftime lead.
HP's defense continued into the fourth quarter, keeping Smith without a field goal for 4:30 spanning the third and fourth quarters. Katherine Krause sank two field goals in the fourth quarter, and Sydney McDaniel had a three-pointer to go with two put-backs by Dabney Rice to extend the lead to 21 at one point.
HP travels to Greenville for a 7:30 p.m. game on Friday.
