Clarksville, TN – The West Creek Lady Coyotes pounced on the Northwest Lady Vikings Tuesday night and did not let them up, springing efficiently to a 58-37 District 10-AAA victory.
Well executed offensive plays led to an abundance of scoring by nine different Lady Coyotes. They hit the court running and put the Lady Vikings in a hole they could not dig out of.
“I thought we did some good things tonight. Offensively, we were able to run our offense almost perfectly at some points,“ Lady Coyote’s head coach Rebecca Rideau said. “Defensively, we are still getting beat back in transition. We’ve got some kinks that we need to work out, but overall I think they are playing okay.”
