Lady SaberCats still trying to recapture early season roll



Gomez drove into the lane and put up a shot that was off the mark. Palmer battled Hawkins for the rebound and put the ball back up for the game-winning basket.

“If I remember correctly, Callie and Momo (Hawkins) both had their hands on the ball,” Guziec said. “I just think Callie wanted it a little bit more right then and ripped it from her and put it back up.”

Richardson led the Jaguars with 18 points. Gomez added 14. Lay and Sydney Chastain posted 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Hawkins picked up where she left off five weeks ago. In her first game back she posted 18 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and two steals. Hayley Eaves added 11 points and Campbell chipped in with 9.

“Overall, I thought I saw some hunger from us I hadn’t seen in a while,” Southmoore coach Britney Kannady-Sayes said. “So I am proud of that. Obviously, we lost and that hurt. But we made some key mistakes, especially at the end of the ball game. If we play that hungry and learn from the mistakes, we can shake that off and move forward from here.”

Norman North girls 59, Moore 52: The Lady Lions had a chance to pick up their biggest win of the season when they trailed by only two points heading into the fourth quarter against the seventh-ranked Timberwolves Friday.

However, missed free throws and opportunities kept them from pulling off the upset on the road.

Amanda Patterson paced Moore with 17 points. Breanna Jones added 11.

Westmoore girls 45, Del City 38: Sydney Chastain scored 14 points to lead the Jags (11-9) past the Eagles Friday. Ashley Gomez chipped in with 9. But it was Kaci Richardson’s 17-rebound performance that was too much for Del City to handle.

Edmond Memorial girls 45, Southmoore 33: The Lady SaberCats fourth quarter struggles continued despite the return of Serithia Hawkins to the lineup. They were outscored 19-9 in the final eight minutes as they lost by 12 to the bulldogs.

Jamia Shepard and Cyndi Campbell led the Cats with 8 points each.
