V-A too much for Lady Bulldogs

VELMA — Having a one-two scoring punch is viewed as an asset for the team.

The Velma-Alma Lady Comets have something a little better, a one-two-three scoring attack.

Teddi Southerland (23 points), Aria Johnson (22) and Kylee Saville (18) were more than the Healdton Lady Bulldogs could handle on Friday night as V-A cruised to a 77-47 victory.

“Teddi shot the ball extremely well tonight and got hot from the outside,” V-A coach Jerry Garrett said. “Kylee got a lot of fast break points for us, and used her quickness. Aria brought that inside presence for us. I’m just proud of the overall effort of the girls.”

Healdton got within 10 points at the 2:46 mark of the third quarter, but just over two minutes later the Lady Comets were up by 20 points at 54-34.

At the end of the third, V-A was well in command at 59-36.

Most of the evening had gone in favor of the Lady Comets, as they lead for most of the game with the exception of a 2-2 scoreline early in the first quarter.

While Healdton’s Lynsie Cantwell put in 25 points on the night, it wasn’t enough to stop the scoring storm from Southerland, Johnson and Saville.

V-A held an 18-9 lead at the end of the first quarter, which was increased to 36-22 at halftime.

“I was very proud of the girls coming back like they did tonight,” Garrett said. “We played well enough to win on Tuesday night against Walters. These girls have plenty of experience and were able to learn from that game and come out strong tonight.”

Other scorers for the Lady Comets (10-5) included Shalyn Files with four points, followed by Bita Humphreys with three points. Samantha Moore, Christina Stone and Kaylie Keenan all added two points. Nikki Wright put in one point.

Abbie Etter put in six points for the Lady Bulldogs (9-6) while Ashley Collier added five points.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
