Manchester sweeps Sharkey
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
Tuesday night at Manchester Academy was a good one as both the Lady Mavericks and Mavericks defeated Sharkey-Issaquena 56-38 and 75-47, respectively.
Both squads were led by a player who scored over 20 points. Jared Stricklin had a whopping 26 points against Sharkey and Kristen Morris led the Lady Mavericks with 22 points. Mary Moses Hitt also had a big night on the floor for Manchester with 19 points of her own.
The Mavericks opened up their game with 30 points in the first quarter alone, while holding Sharkey to just 13. The scoring would continue into the second quarter where Manchester added 17 points to its halftime total for a 47-25 lead.
The second half would see much of the same story with the Mavericks doubling Sharkey’s nine points in the third quarter. Despite trailing 65-34 headed into the fourth quarter, Sharkey outscored the Mavericks in the final quarter 13-10, making the final score 75-47.
After Stricklin’s team-high 26 points, Will Bearden finished second with 12 points and Jammie Jamison had nine.
