Multiple Teams · Lady Scorpions Basketball Triumph

The girls had a program sweep of Barry Goldwater last Friday night.
“The girls came out ready to play on Friday against Barry Goldwater. Zhanea got us jump started with a quick 4 points motivating the girls to play hard defense and get steals. Dasani, Tyra, and Ariel worked hard to get turnovers and have easy opportunities on offense. Morgan got her first steal of the year. The defensive effort made this win possible. Dasani and Ariel were our leading scorers with 9 points each.” Freshman coach Ashlee Engle
“Sophomore Guard Amayah Manning and Freshman Guard Lylonee Mata lead all scorers with 10 points and 12 points, respectively, as the Bulldogs proved to be no match for the DE Junior Varsity team.

In the end Desert Edges pressure defense was the difference, as they put the game away in the second half by going on a 10-2 run in the final minutes of the 3rd quarter.
Madison Gardner and Gabi Frederick also contributed in the scoring department adding 6 points each.” JV Coach Brent Hughes
In the varsity game, the girls came out very flat and found themselves down 20-24 at halftime. We outscored the Bulldogs 20-7 in the 3rd and eventually won by the score of 50-39.
