The Aspermont Hornets traveled to Roby to take on the Roby Lions in another district basketball match-up on Jan. 18th. Coach Carreon, whom is an ex-Roby athlete himself, sent the message that he had no allegiances to his alma mater and his team was primed and ready to take the Lions down.

To begin the game, Lady Hornet Sadie Gentry took it upon herself to light the nets on fire with two fabulous 3-pointers. Jenna Berry also began aggressively by draining 6 pts while Gracie English sank 4 pts and Kenadee Shugart put in 2 pts. The 1st quarter score had the Lady Hornets taking the lead with a score of 7-18.

Rotan Junior, Koy Bell jumps fortip off against Roby Lions last Firday Night

The Rotan Lady Yellowhammers had an opportunity to improve their district record above 500 (won by forfeit over Paint Creek Lady Pirates, winning over the Lady Bobcats of Rule, a loss against the Lady Pied Pipers of Hamlin, and a loss against the Lady Hornets of Aspermont). On January 4, the team hosted the Lady Lions of Roby. Two minutes and forty-four seconds into the game, the Lady Hammers only trailed by 2 points (2-4) with 5:16 remaining in the opening period. As the game progressed, the opportunity seemed to fade…as one would look at the scoreboard at the end of each period: End of the first period: Hammers 5 and Lions 15; end of the second period: Hammers 15 and Lions 32; end of the third period: Hammers 23 and Lions 49. In the final period the Lady Hammers matched the Lady lions with 10 points added to the score board…Hammers 33 and Lions 59 as the team dipped below 500 with a 2-3 record. The team will regroup and prepare for their next district game.
