Lady Demons beat Paris Greyhounds

-A A +A

The Williamstown Lady Demons shut out the Paris Greyhounds on Nov. 30 at WHS, securing the season’s second win in as many games.
Williamstown’s varsity cheerleaders coined the phrase “Greyhounds are all bark and no bite” for the evening, which proved true as the Lady Demons led the game for the entire game and put on a good show for the considerable crowd.

The young Demons team played like seasoned upperclassmen, leading 27-17 at the half.

Lady Demons freshman Rachel Montgomery spoke of her team’s overall season goals as well as her individual goals.

“Our team goals are to have a winning season, grow as a team overall, and to compete with top teams,” she said. “My personal goals are to be a good, positive leader of my team and to get the attention of college scouts.”

The Lady Greyhounds played a strong second half, nearly matching the Lady Demons’ 28 points with 26 in the half. However, Williamstown’s team, led by head coach Kasey Kennedy were able to hold off Paris and soar to a 55-43 win.

Despite two straight wins, the Lady Demons continue to look forward to a series of tough games that lie ahead in the coming weeks.
“As a team, I hope we improve on our transitioning and being able to trust each other to get the job done on the floor,” Montgomery said. “Personally, I just want to improve my overall game.”

Williamstown’s team is unique not only on game day, but every day of the week.

“The culture of our team is really unique. We like to be goofy with each other before games but when we run out for warm ups we know its time to play,” said Montgomery. “Our team is close on the floor and off.”

The Lady Demons will travel to Walton Dec. 7 for a double-header with the Demons team with tip off at 8 p.m. They will also play at home Dec. 8 versus Trimble County at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 10 at Simon Kenton at 7:30 p.m.
