TURPIN, OKLA. — Tough defense and balanced scoring were the keys for the Lady Red Devils as they picked up a win 46-19 over Turpin.
All thirteen Lady Red Devils scored with no one reaching double-digits.
Texhoma coach David Rosenberg doesn’t mind spreading the scoring around.
“We’ve been like that every night. I don’t think we’ve had the same person lead us in scoring consecutive nights. It’s been a different person every night.”
While Turpin continued their season-long struggle on offense, coach Chad Fox was happy with his team’s effort.
“Defensively I couldn’t be happier with them. You hold a ballclub like Texhoma like that.”
The problem was, after taking a 2-0 lead with 5:49 left in the first quarter, Turpin did not score until Shelby Hansen scored with 2:25 left in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Texhoma had realed off 17 unanswered points.
Texhoma took a 24-7 lead to the locker room.
The Lady Red Devils pushed their lead to 22 at the end of the third, on their way to a 46-19 win.
“We did a pretty good job defensively we only gave up 19 points can’t really complain,” said Rosenberg. “I did like our effort. We needed a win to really get us going again.”
Coach Fox continues to emphasize the same things to his team..
“We are still struggling with turnovers and giving up offensive rebounds,” said Fox. “If we can ever limit our turnovers and handle pressure and get to an offensive board, we can be competitive.”
Shelby Moore led the Red Devils with 8 points, and Kayla Husted added 6.
Shelby Hansen and Peyton Robinson led the Lady Cardinals with 7 each.
Texhoma faces county rival Hooker next Tuesday, and Turpin will face Beaver.
