Lady ‘Landers pull away from Johnson County

Published 3:09 pm Wednesday, January 3, 2018

Junior post Trinity Vines had a game-high 15 points with seven rebounds and five assists as Cloudland dominated the Lady Longhorns 59-39 on Tuesday night at Sonny Smith gym.
“Trinity has always worked hard, she is a good kid, and always wants to get better and be a good teammate,” Lady Highlanders head coach Mike Lunsford said. “They are all good teammates, and they are unselfish. They like each other, and that is very important. They root for each other to do good.”
The Lady ‘Landers (11-3) quickly jumped out to a 20-7 lead after one quarter with junior guard Megan Lunsford connecting on three treys in the period and Vines hitting one as well.
“This was one of the best games of passing the ball we have played all year,” Lunsford said. “We worked on that one play with Megan, and I felt we could get one, possibly two, but we got three in a hurry, and her shot never touched the rim.”
Cloudland opened a 31-18 lead by the break and kept the pedal to the metal in the second half as well. Taylor Cox led Johnson County with nine points followed by Taylor Parsons with eight. Lunsford and Stacia Wilson both contributed 11 points to the Cloudland ledger.
