Comets hang on for win over Indian Trail

By Michael S. Hoey


The Delavan-Darien girls basketball team got off to a great start and held on to win by one, 38-37, in a home non-conference game against Kenosha Indian Trail on Jan. 14.

Coach Marty Speth said he was happy with the start.

“I thought we passed well and got good angles on our cuts,” Speth said. “We took the ball to the hoop with better spacing and we rebounded really well in the first half.”

DDHS’ press defense also was successful in forcing turnovers and making it difficult on the Hawks offense.

The Comets got out to a quick 6-0 lead on two baskets by McKenna Williams and one by Rylee Crull. After an Indian Trail basket, the Comets pushed the lead to 10, thanks to Williams and Crull.

Williams continued to pour it on and outscored the entire Indian Trail team 20-12 all by herself in the first half. The Comets led 27-12 at the half.

“She drove the ball at the right time, did not really force it, and made the bunnies (short shots),” Speth said.
