Lady Hounds pick up first ‘W’

After opening the 2015-16 season with three consecutive defeats, the Manchester Lady Hounds got new head coach Jacie Simon her first win as they knocked off the Augusta Lady Panthers 43-39 in a game played on Sat., Dec. 5 at Manchaster High School.

The Lady Hounds rode the hot hands of senior Morgan Johnson and junior Kylie Lucas, who both tallied 19 points in the win, a varsity career high for Lucas. Augusta was paced by 19 points from junior guard Dana Garrett.

The first quarter of the contest went the way of the visiting Lady Panthers as they outscored the home team 16-12 over the first eight minutes. Johnson’s big night for the Lady Hounds began in that opening stanza as she hit a three-pointer, two from inside the arc, and a free throw for an eight-point start.

Manchester bounced back in the second quarter, outscoring Augusta 14-9 to head to the locker room for the halftime break holding a slim 26-25 advantage. Lucas was hot in that second period for the home team, scoring seven points as the Lady Hounds surged in front.

The time in the locker room at the intermission must have cooled off both teams as they combined to score just a total of eight points in the third quarter, five of those belonging to the Lady Hounds, four of them coming on a pair of Lucas buckets. Even with the low-scoring period, Manchester still held a 31-28 lead headed into the final eight minutes of play.

In the final quarter, the Hounds got a basket from Kelsey Friend off the bench, two from Johnson, and two from Lucas to hold off the Lady Panthers and post the 43-39 victory.

Manchester (1-3) will be looking to make it two in a row on Thursday, Dec. 10 when they host the Fairfield lady Lions in a Southern Hills Athletic conference match up, with the JV tip off set for 6 p.m.
