Johnson Countys Sadie Stout played the lights out in their opening night win in Hamptons 7th grade Christmas Tournament. Unfortunately she missed the final two games due to strep and both resulted in losses.
Hampton took third place by knocking off Johnson County 36-13 on Tuesday. Head coach Kechia Eller acknowledged that her absence was felt.
She plays a big role in everything that we do, said Eller. She runs our offense and leads us in scoring. It was tough not having her to set up things. We played well at times in spurts but we just couldnt get going.
The Longhorns got a basket each from Maddi Edington and Deanna Younce in the first quarter but it couldnt offset the five points scored by Bridgette Heaton and the two deuces from Destini Milhorn.
They led 11-5 thanks to a late steal and layup from Sarah Orr to close the quarter. The second quarter was almost a duplicate.
Sophie Cable sparked the Bulldogs by scoring five points in addition to collecting four steals. Milhorn kept up her stellar play by scoring a half dozen points.
They also got a big boost from Hazen Brumitt who added five rebounds, two of which resulted in second chance points by Milhorn.
