Hornets dominate Holtville

Dallas County (4-1) used a mixture of early offense and stifling defense to put Holtville (1-1) away quickly in a 38-10 win.

“This was a good game for us to work on our halfcourt offense, and we came out and got the job done,” said Dallas County coach Charles Thompson.

The win allowed the Hornets to bounce back from a 62-28 loss at Selma on Saturday.

A Rodnesha Vinson layup gave Dallas County an early 2-0 lead and triggered a 16-0 run capped by a Britney Richardson layup.

During the run, the Hornets held the Bulldogs scoreless for the first 12 minutes of the game before.

A Georgana Rountree jump shot finally got Holtville on the board at the 4-minute mark of the second quarter.

“They’re so much more athletic than we are,” said Holtville coach Jeff Hines. “They got the advantage from the get-go.”

Dallas County took an 18-4 lead into halftime and opened the second half with a 10-0 run sparked by back-to-back 3-pointers by Asherica Heard and Kim Ross to extend the lead to 28-4 late in the third quarter.
