Lady Devils open season with 67-42 win over Clay

Coming into the 2015-16 season with the usual high expectations, the North Adams Lady Devils basketball squad lived up to those, at least in their season opener, as they used a big second half to roll past host Portsmouth Clay by a final count of 67-42.

After leading just 23-16 at the half, North Adams outscored the Lady Panthers 44-26 in the final two periods to pull away for the win.

“We didn’t start the game with the energy that we need to have every game,” said North Adams head coach Rob Davis. “We have to be ready to get after it on both ends of the floor, right from the start, for 32 minutes. Our energy picked up in the second half and we started to get the momentum.”

“Give Clay credit. They kept battling the entire game and put out a tremendous effort. They will only get better as the season goes along since they have no juniors or seniors, just three sophomores and nine freshmen.”

After that slow start, the Lady Devils got a left off the bench from freshman Grace McDowell, who poured in eight second quarter points. The third and fourth quarters saw the North Adams girls go to their depth as 10 different girls scored in the second half.

“Overall we are pleased with the team victory,” said Coach Davis. “It’s always nice to start the season with a win and now we are ready to focus on our next game with an improving Whiteoak team.”

In the win at Clay where 11 different Lady Devils cracked the scoring column, it was sophomore Lakyn Hupp leading all scorers with 17 points. Hupp was joined in double figures for the Lady Devils by McDowell with 14 and Staci Dinsmore with 11. Avery Harper added 8.

The Lady Devils will host their home opener on Tuesday, Nov. 24, when the Whiteoak Lady Wildcats come to Seaman.
