GIRLS HOOPS: Lady Eagles top Ike for 3rd straight win

Youngsville’s girls basketball team won its third straight to improve to 3-2 in Region 3 and 6-7 overall, 51-30 over Eisenhower on Monday at Eisenhower High School.

“We played very well tonight,” said Youngsville coach David Becker. “We’re still learning to win, but they basically wanted this game.”

Eisenhower coach Mike Logue’s game plan was for the Lady Knights to shut down the Cratty twins, but Kennedy Cratty scored seven points in the second quarter and 10 in the third and the Lady Eagles pulled away. She finished with 23 points, 14 rebounds and six steals, Karissa Cratty seven points, 10 rebounds and four assists, and point guard Katie Chuzie is playing her best basketball of the season, said Becker, with six points, six assists, five rebounds and two blocks.

Becker said Aubree Hendrickson stepped up with 11 points.

“Our defense tonight, if we can string together an entire game like that (in future region games), we’re going to be tough,” said Becker.

Holly Chapman scored 15 of Eisenhower’s 30 points, and teammate Kirsten Baran had five rebounds.
