Page 2B m Hays Free Press January 19, 2011_ MOTHER'S DAY OUT AT THE Y + Hays Gids Basketball Continued from pg. 1B "This was an extremely big win for us tonight," Hays head coach Danny Preuss said. "They came to our place earlier in the year and got us. This time, we were a lot more focused and played with a lot more confidence." The Lady Rebels fmished with a season- high 10 three-pointers, including three in the first quarter alone as Nicole Alcan- tara, Shannon Peace and ]avon Saucedo all drained bombs to give Hays an early 15-8 first quarter lead. Meanwhile, the Lady Rebel defense held Turner, who poured in 30 points in Canyon's 51-43 win in the first meeting, to 2-of-ll shooting in the first half. "We wanted to make sure that she didn't beat us this time around," said Hays forward Jaieasa Jones, who led all scorers with 20 points. Hays built its biggest lead of the game just before halftime at 37-17 following 3-point- ers on three consecutive trips by Saucedo, ]ones and Rachel Calabrese. A steal and coast-to-coast layup by Sauce- do and another 3-pointer by ]ones in the second half helped Hays seal the win. "Earlier in the season the girls were ques- tioning whether or not they were a playoff team," Preuss said. "Now, they axe confident that they are a playoffteam."

"In fact, I think the King game was our best defensive effort otthe season so far. We just weren't able to find the net." Lehman opened pool play with a very impressive 6-2 win over Crockett with charging Crockett goalkeeper to spark the Lobos to a 2-1 haiftime advantage. The second half dearly belonged to the Lobos as they tacked on four more goals to cruise to victory. "We came out very aggressive and deter- mined to get off on the right foot," San- som said. "Our defense did a good job of keeping the ball on their side of the field. We wanted to attack a little bit more in the the defensive pressure and although they s!pent the final 15 minutes on Rouses side of the field, they were unable to score again and the match ended in a 1-1 tie. "We definitely had our opporumities to score in the game," said Sansom. "But we just couldn't get the goal when needed to win. It was pretty disappointing."
