Strong start propels Midlothian past Ennis JV hoops

The JV Lady Lions played Midlothian even up over the last three quarters of Tuesday’s ballgame, but a rough start proved difficult to overcome.
Ennis trailed 15-4 after one and lost the game by that same margin, 42-31. Jayna Trigg and Porsche Washington led the charge with 11 and 10 points respectively, while Jaquana Gatlin (6) and Jalisa Malone (4) also chipped in.

The Panthers were on-point early with seven field goals in the opening quarter, as Ennis received two points apiece from Malone and Gatlin. The maroon team showed some fight in the second quarter, however, controlling the action defensively to win the frame 9-2.

Midlothian didn’t produce a single basket in the quarter and went 2-7 from the free throw line. Trigg got going with four points for Ennis and Gatlin kept up her effort with three more.

“We did a better job of switching screens and picking up on what they were going to do,” said coach Morgan Moylan.

“We also showed some improvement on our press at that point. That quarter got us back into the game and gave us a chance going into the second half.”
