Lady Hornets sweep week


Solid offensive play pushed the Pine Bluffs Lady Hornets over the visiting Potter-Dix Lady Coyotes, 46-33 on Tuesday.

With four lead changes early, it looked like the contest would be close; however, the Lady Hornets shook off whatever rust they had built up and began to dominate the game.

By the end of the first half the home team was up 32-16.

Scoring wasn’t as big for the Lady Hornets, but it was enough to keep them in the lead. The home team managed to score 14 points in the second half of the game while giving up 17 to Potter-Dix.

“Potter-Dix was one of the best teams we have played this year,” said coach Lindsey Forbes. “They are big, fast and well coached. It was a really physical game.”

Forbes said the team had some issues with fouls but had strong play from the bench.

“We got in foul trouble early and Brooke (Darden) and Ashlyn (Culp) did a great job, coming off the bench,” she said.

Defensively, Forbes was pleased.

“We played great team defense,” Forbes said.

Offensively, there was no one player taking over the game. According to Forbes, the girls kept the ball moving.

“Our scoring is really evenly spread. The girls are sharing the ball and having fun,” Forbes said. “It was a good test for us and we need to continue to improve each week.”

Azhane Bufford led the Lady Hornets in scoring with nine points. Bufford went three-for-six at the charity stripe. She was followed by Sierra Shelit with eight.

Jadyn Golding scored six points. Kammie Ragsdale, Brooke Darden, Melissa Fornstrom and Montanna Chrystal each had five. Fornstrom and Chrystal were each one-for-two at the free throw line.

Ashlyn Culp rounded out the scoring with three points.

Lingle-Fort Laramie

Kammie Ragsdale led all scoring as the Pine Bluffs Lady Hornets rolled past Lingle-Fort Laramie on the road last Saturday, 50-32.

Azhane Bufford complimented Ragsdale’s scoring effort as she lit up the scoreboard for 11.

The Lady Hornets took the lead in the first quarter. The lead changed a total of three times before the visiting Lady Hornets settled into the game and took command. At one point, the Lady Hornets led by as much as 23.

The third period saw the Lady Hornets score 13 while holding the home team to seven. They would mirror their offensive effort in the fourth but gave up 13 to Lingle-Fort Laramie.

Rounding out the Lady Hornets scoring was Sierra Shelit and Melissa Fornstrom with eight, Montanna Chrystal had six, and Jadyn Golding had three.
