The Ballinger Lady Cats continued their winning season 78-19 with a win Monday night over San Angelo Lake View, bringing the team to a 5-0 record. They take on Garden City on Thursday.
In a 64-31 win against Menard for the Lady Cats, the biggest takeaway - it shouldn’t have been that close. This brings the Lady Cats to 4-0 for the season so far.
Leading scorers for the Lady Cats in the game against Menard were Vivian Guerrero and Bryla Perkins with 14 apiece. Guerrero would also lead the team in rebounds while Jadyn Gore pitched in 5 rebounds for her highest single game total on the year.
Kinley Gray scored 10 points with two 3-point shots in the game while also giving the Lady Cats an amazing 8 steals. Kinlee Bowman was not her usual self as she failed to reach double digits in either points (9) or rebounds (3). She did, however, hit the only free throw of the game for Ballinger in a dismal 1 for 10 performance from the line.
The biggest downside of the game for the Lady Cats was the discrepancy in fouls. Nineteen times Ballinger fouled their opponent while only being fouled six. The foul differential awarded Menard with so many points that the 31 they scored only included six points from the floor.
Ballinger will be hosting Lake View November 20 and Garden City November 28 before also hosting the Ballinger Classic November 30th and December 1.
