Hays’ Career Night Leads Cody Past Kelly Walsh, Broncs Fall Short
Written by Cole Havens on January 13, 2022
Molly Hays had a game high, and I believe career high, 29 points, Thursday night as the Fillies pulled away from Kelly Walsh for the 66-52 victory.
This marks the Fillies eighth straight win to open the season.
The Fillies got off to a great start Thursday evening as they jumped out to an early 17-8 lead after one quarter of play.
The Fillies and Lady Trojans would trade barbs thorughout the second quarter and with time winding down in the half, Hays would lay in a 2-pointer right before the buzzer and Cody took a 10-point lead into the intermission, 30-20.
The 3rd quarter was much of the same, pretty back-and-forth but a step back three by Jessa Lynn gave the Fillies a 46-33 lead after three and it was all over from there.
The Fillies dropped in 20 fourth quarter points, Hays scored 14 of her 29 in the final frame and the Fillies pulled away fort the win.
Hays led the way with 29 points, Kennedi Niemann added 17 and Jessa Lynn had arguable her best game of the season knocking in seven.
With the win the Fillies are now 8-0 on the season.
In the second game of the double header, Kelly Walsh showed why they are the No. 2 team in Class 4A as they routed the Broncs for the 66-25 win.
Kelly Walsh hit nine 3-pointers in the game, six in the first quarter and cruised to their 10th win of the season.
Cody was led by Robby Porter with seven points.
With the loss, the Broncs are now 2-6 on the season.
