Lady Mavericks Still Undefeated, Take Down Lady Coyotes, Circle's Wildcats

The Dodson Lady Coyotes and North Country Lady Mavericks squared off in Dodson last Friday, January 20, in the Coyote Den.

The Lady Mavericks won 63-26 against a Dodson team that fought until the last buzzer.

Paige Wasson led the Lady Mavericks in the win with 24 points, eight rebounds, three steals, and two assists. Wasson hit six treys in the win. Teagan Erickson had 12 points and six rebounds. Kora LaBrie had seven points and five assists.

"I think that our defense was pretty good," North Country senior Kora LaBrie said of the win. "We weren't really flowing that well on offense, so I think that our defense was helping us get into that flow."

Dodson was led by Kataya KillEagle who had 16 points. Lindsey Fetter had five points, Jazlyn KillEagle had three points, and Lilyian Turnsplenty had two points.

Wasson was asked what they had to do to slow down the Lady Coyotes.

"We just have to have a hand up on their shooters because they can get hot sometimes, so it is really important that we keep our hands up and we communicate and flow."

Lady Coyotes

The Lady Coyotes dug themselves into a hole in their loss to Lustre last Tuesday, January 17, in Lustre. The team fell behind 32-14 at halftime, but thanks to a 14 point effort by senior Lindsey Fetter, and a defense that only gave up 10 points in the second half and none in the last 5:30 of the game, Dodson nearly caught their 3C foes.

Fetter led all scorers with 17 points. Kataya KillEagle had 14 points. Jazlyn KillEagle had five points, Emma Cole had two points, and Lilyian TurnsPlenty had one point.

On Saturday, the Lady Coyotes lost 43-29 to the Scobey Lady Spartans. Dodson only trailed 20-16 at halftime, before the Lady Spartans went on a 9-2 run in the third period, and closed the game out by outsourcing Dodson 14-11 in the fourth quarter.

Fetter led Dodson with 12 points. J. KillEagle had nine points, K. KillEagle had three points, TurnsPlenty had three points, and Emma Cole had two points.

Lady Mavericks Head Coach Amber Erickson sent out a press release after the conclusion of last week's games.

"It was another fun weekend for the Lady Mavericks," Coach Erickson said. "Taking on Circle in Hinsdale Saturday for senior night. Circle being one of the top teams from the other district is a solid team with size, quickness and plays very physical. I was happy with how the girls handled the physicality of the game and the aggressive man pressure.

"They held their composure the entire game and did so many things well on both ends of the floor," Coach Erickson continued. "I loved the way they executed offensively and defended their strong offensive players. I feel we are getting better every week and the girls are working hard and having so much fun playing together.

The Lady Mavericks are scheduled to face the Nashua Lady Porcupines on Friday, January 27, at 6 a.m. in Nashua. They will then travel to Glasgow on Thursday, February 2, to face the Lady Scotties at 6:30 p.m. The JV Team will face the Malta JV team on Tuesday, January 31, in Malta.
