Lady Hounds 49, ASC 28
The Huntington Lady Hounds moved to 3-0 in MPSA District 5-1A Monday with a 49-28 win over Amite School Center in Liberty.
Huntington (9-5) held ASC scoreless in the first period to take a 25-13 halftime lead.
&uot;Defense has always been our strong point,&uot; said Lady Hounds coach Penny Moak. &uot;We used a man-press that worked until we got into foul trouble at the end of the first half and had to back down. As long as we can stay in that, we can shut teams down.&uot;
Sara Ashmore led Huntington in scoring with 11 points and Emily Hazlip added another nine.
&uot;I thought we had a balanced attack as far as even scoring through the quarters and the people in the game,&uot; Moak said. &uot;We didn’t have one person do all the scoring. It was a team effort.&uot;
Huntington next travels to Bogalusa, La., Friday for another district match-up against Ben’s Ford Christian School in four games beginning at 4 p.m.
