JV Lady Devils get third win

Coach Tony Williams and his North Adams Lady Devils JV girls basketball squad were on the road last Thursday night, Dec. 10. looking for their third win in four outings in this young season. They accomplished their goal as the Lady Devils used a balanced scoring attack with all nine players in the score book getting in on the attack, and defeating the Fayetteville Lady Rockets 37-30.

“This was a solid win for us against an improving team,” said Coach Williams. “We shot the ball well early which gave us some confidence. Our defensive pressure gave the trouble early.”

The Lady Devils led at every stop, using a pair of three-pointers from Caitlin Young and another from Allison Harper to spring in front 14-8. Two buckets from Brooklyn Stout and perfect performances from the foul line by Brooklyn Wylie and Abbi Stacy helped lead the visitors to a 25-16 halftime advantage.

The lead continued to grow in the third quarter as the Lady Devils dialed long distance with three-point baskets by Stacy and Madee Shipley and though they only mustered a pair of free throws in the final period, it was enough to post the seven-point victory.

“We need to sustain our defensive intensity throughout the entire game,” added Williams. “We had several plays that we didn’t finish which gave them some easy scores. We will work on getting our defensive rotation better and getting to the glass on both ends of the floor at a higher rate.”

With all nine players denting the scoring column, the Lady Devils were led in the win by 7 points from Caitlin Young, all of those in the first quarter, her only quarter of JV action on the night. Abbi Stacy and Brooklyn Stout added 6 points apiece with Allison Harper and Brooklyn Wylie adding 5 each.

Fayetteville was led by 9 points from Faith Stegbauer.
