Good shot selections propel Trojans
Lexi Weaver started the scoring on the wing. Kelsey Hoffman repeated a shot from the wing and Jessica Hoffman also contributed a bucket from the wing. Cameron Koppenhaver jumped in on the action from the baseline and Laura Sweger found two inside jumpers and the Trojans led 18-6.
The second quarter found the Lady Eagles keeping near the Trojans offensive pace. Gabby Yerger hit an offensive put back. Tori Wolfe used two drives and two free throws.
Both teams committed turnovers in the final two minutes of the second frame. The Eagles had chances at the free throw line, but would miss five free throws in eight attempts. Autumn Walker’s offensive putback gave UDA a 29-15 halftime lead.
Turnovers plagued Line Mountain in the third quarter as they were out-scored 10-8 and trailed 39-23. The Lady Eagles tried to come back, thanks to the efforts of Amber Hackenberg, who nailed three straight shots in the end of the third and start of the fourth quarter to keep the Eagles hopes alive. But the Eagles could not overtake UDA.
“I thought we moved the ball well tonight and had good shot selections. We look forward to seeing what we can do in the upcoming league playoffs.” said UDA Head Coach Rich Hoffman.
