GODLEY — The Godley Lady Cats (14-9, 2-0 in district) used an impressive show of defense to defeat the Maypearl Lady Panthers (9-12, 0-2), with their second consecutive 63-19 win over District 11-2A opponents.

The blowout score didn’t look to be an option at the half, as Godley only led, 19-9. But a 23-3 performance in the third quarter, followed up by a 21-7 score in the final quarter gave the Lady Cats the massive final margin.

Lady Cat head coach Mark Chauveaux explained the difference between the two halves.

“In the first half, we were really patient on offense,” Chauveaux said. “We created a lot of scoring opportunites, but we couldn’t make those shots.”

“At the half, we said that we have to make the most of those opportunities, or we had to start scoring with our defense. We were more aggressive after halftime, and scored getting steals and easy layups,” Chauveaux added.

Chauveaux also had praise for the Lady Cat defensive effort for holding their second straight foe under 20 points.

“That’s the best that we’ve played defense all year,” Chauveaux said.

Tiffanny Flores led the Lady Cats with 16, while Chelsea Brooks had 14.

“Chelsea was one of those in the first half that was missing the chances she usually makes,” Chauveaux said. “She stepped up in the second half, and made those chances.”

Godley looks to continue its unbeaten slate in District 11-2A when they travel to Keene on Friday to take on the Lady Chargers at 4 p.m.
