Lady Devils continue to roll, knocking off Fayetteville 57-30

The beat goes on for Coach Rob Davis and the North Adams Lady Devils as they picked up their fourth win in a row on Jan. 7, knocking off the Fayetteville Lady Rockets 57-30 in Southern Hills Athletic Conference action on the home court at NAHS. The Lady Devils jumped out to a big first quarter lead and got a big game from senior Staci Dinsmore, who came very close to a rare quadruple double as she scored 18 points, had 11 steals, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists.

“We really got after it right from the start,” said Coach Davis. “We knocked down some shots early which always helps build confidence on both ends of the floor.”

North Adams took control of this SHAC title right from the opening tip, getting a basket from Madison Jenkins on their first possession, and then using their intense defensive pressure to get a steal and easy score from Dinsmore. A basket by Grace McDowell and a three-pointer by Dinsmore pushed the lead to 12-5 as the Lady Devils were in the midst of a 12-2 run to end the first quarter. A stick back by Avery Harper, a three by Taylor Wylie, and another McDowell bucket left North Adams with a big 21-7 advantage after the first eight minutes of play.

The lead continued to grow early in the second period as another Wylie trey made it 26-11. Two baskets by Harper stretched the lead to 34-15 and after the Lady Rockets got scores from Kate Boler and Samantha Murphy, a steal and layup by Lakyn Hupp and another basket on the inside from Harper sent the two teams to the halftime break with North Adams on top 38-21.

The story of the third quarter was again the North Adams defense as they did not allow a single field goal, the only Fayetteville points coming on three free throws by Samantha Murphy. In the meantime, the Lady Devils got a pair of Dinsmore baskets, another basket in the paint from Harper, and closed the period with a Caitlin Young jumper for a commanding 50-24 lead.

As he has had the luxury to do in some lopsided recent wins, Coach Davis used all of his bench in the final eight minutes and the offense came from Harper, who stayed in the contest long enough to get three fourth quarter baskets. When the final horn sounded, the Lady Devils had their tenth win of the 2015-16 campaign, downing the Lady Rockets 57-30.

The aforementioned 18 points by Dinsmore led the Lady Devils (10-2, 8-1 SHAC), but Harper was close behind with 17.

“Avery had a really nice game inside, making some nice moves and finishing at the rim,” said Coach Davis.

“This was a great league win for us. We need to keep coming out every night giving our best and good things will happen.”

The Lady Rockets were paced by 14 points from senior guard Samantha Murphy.
