Lady Jays claim victory over Kaws

The Sabetha High School Lady Jays traveled to Perry on Tuesday, Jan. 31, to take on the 3-5 Kaws in the rubber match between these two teams this season. Sabetha came away with the victory at home and now were looking for the sweep with a road win. The Lady Jays outlasted their opponent in a nail biter and took the win 44-38.

Both teams started the game with a zone defense, and it was Ellie Meyer who broke the seal off of the rim to score the first points of the contest. Hillary Krebs had 5 points in the first stanza to lead her team and after one quarter of play Sabetha led 12-11.

Grace Kuenzi had 8 points in the second period as she hammered the boards and was a force in the paint, and Maggi Hughes buried a trey early in the quarter. Perry outscored their guests in the second quarter and both teams would go the locker room at the half with the score knotted at 23.

The Lady Jays were held to single-digit scoring in the third frame, while the Kaws would outscore their guests, 13-9. Lauren Huber had 5 points in the quarter on a triple and a deuce, but Perry held the advantage, 36-32, headed into the final quarter.

“We played better defense in the second half,” said Head Coach Alex McAfee. “We out-rebounded them.”

The Jays would battle back and hold the Kaws scoreless in the fourth, up until the final minute of the game.

Trista Argabright poured in the first 4 points of the frame and Krebs inked 6 points, both to help tie the game and then build a narrow lead.

“We were extremely proud of our kids. They stuck together and outscored Perry 12-2 in the fourth quarter,” McAfee said. “That was getting it done on the defensive end.”

Sabetha took the lead with three minutes left in the game and held onto it for the remainder of the contest to tally the win, 44-38.

With the win, the Lady Jays improved to 6-4 and remain at fourth in the Big Seven.
