Warriors swat Hornets

BEECH GROVE — The Danville Warriors (12-10) took the buzz out of the Beech Grove Hornets (3-18) with a 53-30 win last night, advancing them into Saturday night’s sectional final.

A persistent and pesky defensive effort by the Warriors led to 27 Hornets turnovers, 15 of which were Danville steals that resulted in 19 Warrior points. Having already beat Beech Grove in the regular season 62-37, Danville coach Terry Hammons was confident his girls would follow up with a repeat performance.

“When we played them earlier this year we got them to turn the ball over so that was something we used to set the stage to try and take any bit of their confidence out,” Hammons said. “A team like that you have to get them shaky early and we got them to turn it over so they weren’t getting any shots at the basket.”

When Beech Grove was able to shoot it, it was hardly a success. The Hornets went a meager 12 of 51 from the floor while Danville was a little bit better, hitting 24 of 60. At the end of a very sloppy first quarter, the Warriors led by six as both teams were still trying to settle down and get into a flow of the contest. Danville found its rhythm and clicked in the second quarter collectively outscoring the Hornets 19-6 and led 31-12 at half.

“That’s the way we’ve been all year,” Hammons said. “We may have one person that spikes up and scores 17 or 18 points in a game but that’s the way it’s been, by committee. Everybody has taken their turn being the leading scorer as opposed to having that one, main person that is our leading scorer.”

Junior Chelsea Gould led Danville on this occasion, finishing with 11 points to add to her five steals while sophomores Cami Collins, Morgan Bear and freshman Hannah Newby all contributed eight points.
