No. 8 Seymour bests Murray 71-37

MURRAY – The Lady Mustangs opened up play Tuesday with Class 1A No. 8 Seymour fairly competitive, running plays that were catching the Warriorettes off guard early on.

But problems finishing at the bucket didn’t allow Murray to establish any gap and Seymour quickly starting making adjustments.

“We’re just struggling right now,” said head coach Jerry Shields. “We’re struggling getting the ball up the floor. We’re struggling to make six to eight foot shots. I’m not taking anything away from Seymour.”

The Warriorettes turned on a press that forced a few turnovers as the Lady Mustangs had trouble establishing an effective break.

When Murray was able to get into the halfcourt in the first half it was capable of moving the ball inside to post players like Ally Waske and Bre Klein, who each had a number of good looks at the rim.

Klein finished with a team-high 11 points while Waske added six points of her own.

Down eight after the first quarter, the Lady Mustangs opened up the second quarter with two assists from Klein to Waske to cut the lead to four, 17-13.

The Lady Mustangs’ ball movement showed as they finished with 10 assists on 15 made baskets for the game.

But the Warriorettes pushed the lead back out to 11 points and Murray wasn’t able to get within 10 points the rest of the way.

As Seymour upped its defensive intensity the Warriorettes showed why they’re ranked by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.

It was the third quarter where Seymour pulled away from the Lady Mustangs, outscoring their hosts 21-4 in the quarter to take a 58-26 lead.

“We’re not being able to be explosive to get around it (the press),” said Shields. “That’s what a lot of it’s going to take, just showing a little more explosiveness and giving a little bit more on the hustle.”

UP NEXT – Murray (1-3, 1-1) will look to rebound when it travels to Orient-Macksburg (0-5, 0-4) Friday.
