Basketball: Lady Devils Break 14-Game Rivalry Streak and Smother Lady Patriots

By Kris Freeman for White House High School

WHITE HOUSE – A smothering defense by the White House Lady Devils broke a 14-game rivalry losing streak to White House Heritage on Friday night, as the hosts pulled away for a 49-22 win.

Freshman Marley Hyde scored 12 and senior Alexis Bess scored 11, but it was the defensive pressure by the Lady Devils which allowed zero points in the first quarter and only two in the fourth.

White House built a lead of 20-1, and the closest Heritage got was 10 points.

White House did not play a boys game because the Patriots were under quarantine.

The last time White House Lady Devils defeated White House Heritage was January 17, 2014 at home.
