Boyd’s 21 points lead Lady Tigers to 47-29 rout of Destrehan
Hahnville senior KaeLynn Boyd scored 21 points, including nine in the first quarter, the lead the Lady Tigers to a big win over rival Destrehan.
It was Destrehan’s first district loss of the season.
The Lady Tigers used the energy generated by a sell out crowd to roll to a 47-29 victory over the Lady Wildcats. Hahnville (16-7, 5-0) took a 17-1 lead in the first quarter paced by the play of guard KaeLynn Boyd. Boyd scored her team’s first points of the game on a jumper and finished with nine points in the period.
After Boyd gave the Lady Tigers a 2-0 lead, Rea Fields added a layup to put Hahnville on top 4-0. Destrehan finally got on the board when Lexus Wells hit one of her two free throws, but that would be the only point the Lady Wildcats would score over eight minutes.
Boyd and Mariana Gilbert nailed back-to-back buckets to give the Tigers an 8-1 lead and Rickell Preston extended the advantage to 11-1 after making an acrobatic layup and hitting a free throw.
Boyd then finished with five of her teams last six points in the period to put the Lady Tigers on top 17-1.
The Lady Tigers extended the lead to 19-1 in the second on a jumper by Rea Fields and the Tigers went up 23-2 before the Wildcats made their first field goal – a three pointer by Jasmine Morris.
Destrehan did mount a comeback bid before halftime, using another three pointer by Morris and a jumper by Kayla Smothers to cut the Hahnville lead to 25-10, but the Lady Tigers proved to be too much to handle.
Hahnville took a 43-22 lead after the third and cruised to the win.
Hahnville’s Boyd led all scorers with 21 points, while Lady Tigers Rea Fields and Rickell Preston both finished with seven points. Morris led Destrehan with 11 points, while Lamitra Wells added eight.
