NEW BOSTON, Texas — The Pleasant Grove Lady Hawks weren’t able to outlast the New Boston Lady Lions Friday in the Gunslinger Tournament.

Adi Koller produced nine points, seven rebounds, and three fouls with 12:14 in playing time.

“Adi led us in scoring and and had a few steals and Autumn does a great job putting defensive pressure on the point guards and forcing turnovers,” coach Codi Davidson said.

Emma Crabtree generated eight points, three rebounds, a foul, and 4:39 of playing time.

Reese Gibbs had six points, three rebounds, three fouls, and 8:33 of playing time.

Davidson says that free throws were what made a difference in the matchup.

“Free throws were the difference in the game tonight,” said Davidson. “New Boston made theirs and we missed ours, but we still have a lot of positives to note. We were aggressive on offense and defense and we didn’t let them get us flustered. We did a good job sharing the ball and we never stopped playing the entire time. We fought until the last second.”

Autumn Crouch provided four points, three rebounds, four fouls, and 13:38 of playing time.

Emma Henard had three points, a foul, and 1:12 of playing time.

Davidson was pleased with the contributions from the freshmen class.

“Our freshman, Reese Gibbs No. 4, was awesome tonight and may have earned herself a permanent spot on varsity,” said Davidson. “She gave New Boston’s No. 22 all she could handle. We gave Reese a job, don’t let No. 22 touch the ball and always box her our and Reese did just that and limited her to only three points in the game. Plenty of other girls did great tonight.”

Jazz Moses had two points, two fouls, and 8:04 of playing time.

Kenasia Henry gave Pleasant Grove an assist, a rebound, two fouls, and 6:54 of playing time.

Faye Addison had a rebound and a foul in 9:03 playing time.

“We still have improvements we can make but I 100% feel like we get better every single game we play,” said Davidson.
