Trojans stop Tigers for 3rd straight win
Homer Central girls are going to have a very merry Christmas.
Hannah Casey scored 12 points and Morgan Hollenbeck netted 10 points as the Trojans improved to 3-3 overall with a 41-20 basketball victory over visiting Mexico in Thursday’s OHSL Freedom National Division match-up.
It was the third straight victory for Homer, the Trojans now 2-0 in division play. Mexico falls to 0-2 in league and overall action.
“It’s a great feeling,” Casey said of the win and the winning streak. “My teammates really put it together tonight. There was a lot of great teamwork that made this happen.
“My classmates have really come together,” the sophomore guard added. “I know we are looking forward to the tournament and playing Cortland..”
Homer will return to the court Dec. 27 for the Trojans Christmas Tournament, to host rival Cortland in the first round.
“We really have a good team,” senior captain Kailee Dimorier said. “We are small, but we are fast. We are able to use that speed. We also have some good shooters this season. That all makes it nice.”
Dimorier has been in the rebuilding process throughout her four-year varsity career.
“It the past, we have had teams that were just thrown together,” Dimorier explained. “The group now has a group of people who have been playing together for a while. They know each other and how they play together. That is an advantage.”
