Lady Spartans Obliterate Bluefield

It was a pretty easy tune-up game for the Greenbrier East Lady Spartans on Monday, December 13 when they defeated the Bluefield Beavers 86-33 at Spartan Gym in Fairlea.

The Spartans (5-0) were too much from the get-go for Bluefield as the Beavers were overmatched by a wide margin at every position on the floor.

After another later than usual start due to the Beavers arriving a little late, the Spartans started off hot once the action went live on the court.

Cadence Stewart opened the scoring with a short jumper, Layla Pence got an old fashioned three-point play and then Stewart drained a left corner three.

East jumped ahead 13-0 before Bluefield’s Kara Brown stopped the run with a basket underneath for her team. The rest of the quarter was all about Daisha Summers and Allie Dunford.

Dunford controlled the game from her point guard position and placed perfect passes to her teammates which allowed them opportunities to score, which Summers took advantage. Summers had a nice spin move and finish for two, hit 3-of-4 foul shots and then scored underneath again late in the first period.

After one quarter, East led 25-6.

The Spartan outscored the Beavers 30-9 in the second quarter as Bluefield started thinking about going ahead and warming up the team bus.

In the second half, Pence and Summers controlled the paint inside and 11 different players ended up scoring at least one basket in the game for East.

Caroline Dotson had 10 second half points off the bench to keep the interest at a semi high level even though the game was theoretically over before it started.

Summers led East with 27 points. Stewart had 12, and Dotson and Pence each finished with 10.

No Bluefield player hit double figures.

Despite the easy victory, the Spartans shot only 5-for-25 from 3-point range and 43 percent overall.

Summers was the Magic’s Computer Repair player of the game.

The Spartans get a few days off before facing a tough Musselman team this Saturday, December 18. Tip-off is scheduled for an early 11:00 AM start.
