Recently, the Nevada Lady Jays have had tough tasks and challenges in hoops competition on the road against Camden Harmony Grove and in the Rock against Little Rock Mills for senior high girls basketball action.
The Lady Jays fought hard in both key match-ups, but fell in defeat to Camden Harmony Grove and LR Mills.
Back on Nov. 7, the Lady Jays took the trip to Little Rock to face the Mills Lady Comets and had a competitive match-up on the hardwood. The Lady Jays stayed within striking distance early, but the Lady Comets prevailed, 53-42. In first half action, the Lady Jays only had a five point deficit to the Lady Comets 15-10 at the end of opening period action. In the second, the Lady Jays and Lady Comets both sparked in double-digit scoring with 12 points apiece. At the break, the Lady Jays trailed LR Mills, 27-22.
In the second half, the Lady Jays posted in double-digit scoring for both third and fourth quarters with 10 points apiece, but the Lady Comets totaled for 26 points scored to pull away for the 11 point win.
Following their trip of hoop action in Little Rock, the Lady Jays took to more road play to face a good Camden Harmony Grove Lady Hornets team on Tuesday Nov. 14. The Lady Jays sparked for production, but the Lady Hornets came out victorious 59-38 in their non-conference affair on the hardwood for senior high girls basketball action.
In first quarter play, the Lady Jays trailed the Lady Hornets 15-5 heading to second period play. In the second, the Lady Jays were held to seven points with CHG dropping 19 points on the scoreboard. At halftime, the Lady Jays trailed CHG, 34-12. In the second half, the Lady Jays outscored the Lady Hornets 26-25 for both third and fourth quarter scoring, but in the end CHG secured the 21 point victory.
The Lady Jays will look to continue to make adjustments and build on their season for some momentum following the Thanksgiving holiday break as they'll continue on the road for hoops at Haskell Harmony Grove in Benton on Nov. 27-Dec.2 for tournament competition. They'll remain on the road with games against Hampton (Dec. 1) and at Strong (Dec. 5).
The Lady Jays finally will return home for hoops on Friday Dec. 8 hosting Lafayette County, then begin another long road trip of basketball action at Parkers Chapel (Dec. 12) and enter tournament play at Berryville over the Christmas holiday break in December.
Head coach Kevan Moore will take this time to prepare his Lady Jays for battle through their challenging season of senior high girls basketball competition to finish strong for the first half of the 2017-18 schedule and look to regroup and be ready to roll strong in January-February 2018.
