Hounds waylay visiting Boyd

Peaster girls’ offensive woes prompt tumble to Lady Jackets

PEASTER —

PEASTER — The Peaster Lady Hounds could well have used some of the massive amounts of offense the Greyhounds were assembly-lining on Thursday. The Boyd Yellowjackets were the unfortunate recipients of Peaster’s scoring fest, as the Hounds cruised to a District 9-2A opening win, 67-33.

The PHS boys sprinted out of the blocks to take a 24-3 lead at the close of the first period, primarily off the hot hand of Ty Ballard, who shoveled in shots from near and far. With 14 points in the opening quarter en route to a game high 23 points, Ballard, along with Josh Petermeier, ruled the boards for most of the night — or at least when they were in the game.

Peaster head coach Derron Smith went to the bench with regularity after the first stanza, and kept up the rotation for the duration.

Other top scorers for the Hounds included Petermeier, with 15 points, and Parker Grudt, who added 10.

The competition promises to get tougher in just a couple of days, as Peaster travels to take on Brock at their house on Saturday. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m.

The Lady Jackets did not score with the frequency the Peaster boys displayed, but they did not have to, as Peaster girls struggled to find the offensive rhythm or at least a hot hand to try to keep pace with the Boyd squad.

Turnovers hindered the Lady Hounds offensive push, and the Boyd defenders made sure the open looks were kept to a minimum. 

Peaster had few chances to make up the difference at the free-throw line, with just a half dozen opportunities in the second half. Olivia Seli led the Peaster effort, with six points.

Peaster will not have long to wait for another chance to boost their offense, as they meet Brock’s girls on Saturday at the Eagles’ gymnasium. Game time is set for 6: 30 p.m.
