Saltillo Lady Lions Continue in Hoopfest

The Saltillo Lady Lions dropped their first two games in the Winnsboro Hoopfest Thursday. The Lady Lions lost pool games to powerful Winnsboro, 58-11 and to Georgetown East View, 49-43.

In the Winnsboro game, the host Lady Red Raiders jumped out to a 17-3 first quarter lead and never let up. The Lady Lions were led by Tori Mobley who had 6 points. Madison Simmons had 4 points and Maddie Smith had 1 point.

Against East View, a bad fourth quarter resulted in defeat for Saltillo. The Lady Lions led 15-7 after one quarter, 26-17 at halftime and 39-23 after three quarters. East View then outscored the Lady Lions 26-4 in the fourth quarter to take an improbable 49-43 win. The Lady Lions got 11 points from Madison Simmons, 10 from Maddie Smith, 7 from Tori Mobley, 6 from Anna Reeder, 5 points from Jocelyn Ochoa and 4 from Jordan Sustaire.

The Lady Lions are now 4-9 for the season. They will continue play at Hoopfest in the Silver Bracket Friday evening in the Winnsboro High School Gym.
