Lucas Lovejoy sweeps Greenville; Lone Oak stays in first place


GREENVILLE —   A slow start hurt the Greenville Lady Lions in a 56-26 District 13-4A loss to Lucas Lovejoy on Friday night in the Lions Den.

  Lovejoy led 18-4 after one quarter and 29-15 at halftime.

  “We made too many turnovers,” said Lady Lions coach Lesa Darst. “We need to handle the ball better.”

  Darst said the Lady Lions ran their offense well at times and made some plays.

However, only four Lady Lions scored, led by Savanna Himes with 16 points. Monica Johnson and Cortney Luna both scored six points and Brittni Gilstrap added two.

  Paige Eberhart led Lovejoy and all scorers with 24 points and teammate Shani Rainey added 14 as Lovejoy improved to 9-1 in district play.

  The Lucas Lovejoy Leopards upped their District 13-4A record to 6-1 with a 68-44 win over the Greenville Lions at the Lions Den on Friday night.

  Quinn Havens pumped in 16 points, Sam Victor added 15 and Greg Watson and Jordan Reed added 12 each for Lovejoy, which improved to 18-4 for the season.

  Justin Wade fired in 12 for Greenville, while Brady Mulkey added 10 as the Lions fell to 11-8 overall and 3-4 in district.

  “Tonight’s game we had a lack of execution on both ends of the floor,” said Greenville coach Marcus Smith. “Lovejoy took advantage of it all night. We did a better job of executing in the second half, but we dug too big a hole in the first half. We have to learn from this game and be prepared for Wylie on Tuesday.”

  Greenville went almost seven minutes without scoring in the second quarter as the Leopards stretched a 16-10 lead into a 33-10 advantage.

  Marlon Mack’s 3-point basket with 1:26 left broke Greenville’s dry spell but the Leopards went into halftime leading 40-16.

  Greenville matched Lovejoy point for point in the second half but couldn’t dent the final margin.
