PHEBA â€” Rebekah Falkner scored a game-high 16 points, Holly Hudson and Alaina Hill reached double figures with 10 points each and the Hebron Christian Lady Eagles (3-2; 3-0 District 3-A) defeated the Kemper Lady Rams, 58-29, in a MAIS basketball game Tuesday on the campus of Hebron Christian School.
â€śWhen you get an early lead, it allows you to work on the specifics with the first unit,â€ť Hebron Head Coach Bruce Franks said. â€śWe need all them hitting on the same cylinders.â€ť
Alicia Dempsey led the Lady Rams with 10 points during the losing effort. Alli Vick was the second leading scorer for Kemper with seven points.
Hebron jumped out to a 20-2 lead before closing the first quarter of action still holding an 18-point advantage, 24-6. The Lady Eagles remained dominant in the final eight minutes of the first half, taking a 32-12 lead into the halftime intermission.
Though typically not a leading scorer, senior Subrina Oswalt set the defensive tone for the Lady Eagles in their third consecutive district win over Kemper.
â€śI really though Subrina Oswalt played really well tonight,â€ť Franks said. â€śThe biggest thing with Subrina is she can struggle offensively, but she always brings the defense. She will always do whatever it takes to help her team win.â€ť
