Hanna, Elk Mountain, Medicine Bow (HEM) high school girls basketball team faced Rock River on Saturday. The first half was close and it was a battle. Then the Lady Miners started to have the game get away from them the second half.

The score ended with the Lady Longhorns winning 41 to 27.

Coach Jackie Jones said she felt the first half, her players had done well.

"I think we did a really good job of holding their best players in check, but then the second half, those players started making plays and scoring."

Jones was happy with her team getting a few three pointers in the first half.

"Those three pointers were what made the difference in the first half," Jones said, "Then we came out the second half, hit a nice shot and then Taylor Scott got a steal."

Scott got the game ball in Jones' eyes.

"She stepped up her game defensively and she took my words to heart that I had said before the game and did what needed to be done for the team," Jones said. "She is maturing into a real leader."

Scott had 12 points and 8 steals.

To win, Jones said she knows that the team has to get into their offensive patterns that they practice.

"That is absolutely something we have to focus on with the next basketball games," Jones said.

Amy Campbell 8 points and had 11 rebounds.

The next scheduled basketball game was Monday, but as of press time, the score was not available.
