3rd period barrage leads to D’Hanis win


     A 20-3 difference in the third quarter provided most of the margin of victory on Friday, Jan. 14, as the D’Hanis Cowgirls crushed Medina, 56-27, in District 31-A action at Roy Kile Gymnasium.

     Now 4-2 in league play and 12-4 on the season, the Cowgirls had Tuesday night off. 

     Play resumes with the second half of district play on Friday, Jan. 21. The Cowgirls will host Leakey, and will then travel to Rocksprings on Tuesday, Jan. 25. D’Hanis will be looking to avenge its only two district losses with this week’s matchups. Both games are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. 

     Mabry Herrmann paced the Cowgirls on Friday with 18 points, including six buckets in the third period. Alysha Garcia hit a couple of early threes on the way to a 14-point night. Kylee Thompson added 10.

Up 24-12 at the break, the big run in the third period put D’Hanis ahead 44-15 heading into the final eight minutes.
