Three score in double figures, Hawks pummel Ogden by 33

JEWELL — Other than the initial minute or two, this game was never close.

South Hamilton scored the final 17 points of the first quarter and gave Ogden no chance to stay in the non-conference girls basketball contest last night on Coach Jim Marsh Court.

“We really played well and executed well,” South Hamilton head coach Mark Henderson said following his team’s 66-33 rout of the Bulldogs. “It was maybe a little bit of a slow start, but once we got a couple of buckets and got into our press we were able to force some turnovers and got some easy looks. We shared the ball really well too.”

It was the second straight win for the Hawks (4-6), who led by 21 at the half.

Caleigh Hewitt and Ashlyn Erickson scored 12 points each to lead South Hamilton, and Makena Galetich pitched in 10 more. Henderson said Galetich probably could have poured in 10 more points, but opted to use her quickness to drive and dish to open teammates.

“She made some really nice passes,” he said.

Zoey Duns added nine points, Emma Lewis finished with six, and Tanna Thompson and Mackenzy Grady both had five. Ten South Hamilton players reached the scoring column.

Lillie Ferguson and Reagan Church both scored seven points for Ogden (0-8).
