On January 23rd the Lady Stallions played a non-conference game against United Faith Christian Academy and pulled off their second win of the season. They defeated the Lady Falcons 73-52 who play in the NCISAA Southern Piedmont Conference.

This is a significant win for the Stallions and especially the returning players in their freshman class of the “Core 5” who are making an impact while gaining valuable experience in preparation for next season and beyond. This group is the foundation for the coaches to build upon. Especially, over this summer during the offseason.

Meanwhile, a freshman guard who has quickness and is a good ball handler Natalie Goodfellow scored a team-high 17 points along with 6 assists and 4 steals. Nasha Allen added 16 points and 10 rebounds for the double-double, Jazlyn Jordan 12 points and 6 rebounds, Lilly Todd contributed 11 points and 7 rebounds and senior Ashley Aberly netted 7 points while grabbing 13 rebounds to control the boards. Jossie Hester, an All-Conference player who is averaging 30.3 points per game for the Falcons lead all scorers with 32 points.

Langtree Charter Academy  72 – Queen’s Grant 42 

The Lady Stallions proved to be no match for the more experienced and athletic team from Langtree Charter Academy on Friday night on the Stallions home court.

In the first half, the Lady Lions took a 39-19 lead into the intermission. Primarily on the hot shooting hand of Emerie Tilmon who scored all 11 of her points in the first two periods. While, senior Ashley Aberly scored 8 points for the Lady Stallions to keep pace within striking distance.

In the second half, the Stallions could not keep up with the Lions overall team quickness who beat the Stallions consistently in transition. The Lions shot an efficient 49 percent, passed the ball with some precision, played good defense and simply outgunned the home team. After the third period, the Lions extended their lead to 58-27 to maintain a solid competitive edge over the Stallions.

Queen’s Grant played a very competitive fourth period actually winning the period on the scoreboard 15-14, however, it was to little to late to have any impact in the final outcome. The Stallions showed their potential and never gave up playing good defense to the final seconds of this contest.

The Stallions leading scorer was Arberly 10 points, Goodfellow 7, Nasha Allen 6 and Lily Gorum 6 points. For the Lions Seraiah Davis 14, Tyaysia Sharpe 12, Tilmon 11 led the scoring for the victors.
