DANIELE EWERT'S DOUBLE-DOUBLE SENT LIONS TO BIG 6A VICTORY
Prattville’s Lady Lions basketball team opened play with a 12-3 run Thursday night, December 22, at Powell Gymnasium and never looked back to enjoy a rout of the Sidney Lanier Lady Poets, 48-33.
With the victory the Lions improved to 4-6 on the young season. The Lions will travel to Letohatchee December 30 to take on the Calhoun Tigers. Prattville will then take a break for the holidays and return to action with a trip to Opelika January 3rd.
Daniele Ewert put on a show for the Lions against the Poets. The talented junior finished the afternoon with a double-double, scoring 23-points and pulling down ten boards, and also had five steals. Ewert set out the final four minutes of the game as Prattville built a 24-point lead midway of the final quarter.
Ewert put the Lions on track for the big win over class 6A Sidney Lanier by scoring 10 of the Lady Lions first 14 points and a early 12-3 run. Prattille never trailed during the game.
Lanier put on a mini rally as the second period began. Tashara Judkins and Jasmine Taylor rallied the Poets to close the gap at 18-13 with 2:56 left in the half. Ewert's trey from the corner kept Lanier at bay. The Lions ended the half on top 25-16.
The third period proved to be Lanier’s waterloo. The Lions blistered the Poets, 15-0, to lead, 40-16, as the final period began.
Prattville kept the double-digit 24- point lead until midway of the final period. With the large lead Lion coach Virginia Kerger pulled Ewert and most of the starters and played reserves the final four minutes.
Bridgejae Patterson followed Ewert with six points. The Lions also played without eight grade sensation Aaliyah Holmes, who set out the game with an injury sustained in the Opelika game last week. Her status for the season is currently unknown.
Tashara Judkins paced the Poets with 12-points. Judkins is an outstanding young player with the Poets.
