After knocking off Midlothian on Friday, there would be no rest for the Lady Indians. On the road against a very tough Mansfield Legacy team the following Tuesday, Waxahachie’s “Fast and Furious” billing would be put to the test. Legacy, who’s team is guard driven and loaded with scorers, would put pressure on the Lady Indian’s defense from their first possession to their last. As the game got under way, the pace was frenetic with both teams running in transition on ever possession. However, it would not take long for Legacy to see how fast and how furious the Lady Indians are as a team. After running the legs out from under the Lady Broncos in the first two quarters, Waxahachie held an 11 point lead at the half, 40 to 29. Just as in the Midlothian game, the Lady Indians were sparked by the talented freshmen Mya Williams, who finished with 11 points in the first half. If the Waxahachie fans had a feeling of Deja Vu about Williams first half brilliance, Sarah Bush would reinforce those feelings in the second half. Just as in the Midlothian game, Bush would roll out a devastating offensive showcase on the Lady Broncos in the final two quarters by hitting for 17 of her team high 23 points. Again, just as a mirror image of the Midlothian game, Waxahachie closed out the fourth quarter with a balanced offensive attack with Sarah Bush scoring 11, Diamond Atchison 6, Jordan McGee 3, and Cassidy Morgan 3. In the end, it would take a team effort to outscore Legacy as the Lady
Broncos sophomore phenom Harmoni Turner went off for 37. Even the most staunch Waxahachie fan had to applaud Ms. Turner as she was nothing short of fantastic.
The win moves Waxahachie into sole possession of second place in the district at 5 – 1 and sets up an exciting match-up with league leading Mansfield Timberview. Timberview is currently ranked 1st in the State and #5 Nationally.
