Chisholm sweeps Pioneer in opener


ENID, Okla. — Chisholm 54,Pioneer 32 (G)

Chisholm’s girls held Pioneer to single digits in all four quarters, answering each with double figures of their own in cruising to a season-opening win against the host Lady Mustangs 54-32.

Sophomore forward Morgan Lawver paced the Lady Longhorns early, scoring 11 of her team’s first 12 points on four-of-four shooting from the field in the opening quarter.

Chisholm took its first double-digit lead early in the second quarter when Faith Mirelez’s driving layup put her team up 18-8, and never looked back in the wire-to-wire victory.  

“For our first game out, we’ve got some stuff we need to work on, but it’s good to see it against other people with the fans and everything around,” Chisholm coach Terry Middleton said.

Megan Galusha took over the scoring load after the  opening frame, scoring 13 of her 15 points in the final three minutes to pace the Lady Longhorns and keep Pioneer at arm’s length throughout.

“She’s not bad,” Middleton joked of the sophomore guard’s performance. “I’ve known what I’ve had with her for quite a while now. She’s a special player. She’s just one of those girls that makes it all go. She’s really quiet about it, but she’s fun to watch.”

Kammi Gruber finished with 10 points for Chisholm, Baylee Hammons added 7 and Mirelez added 5.

Lexsie Mann was Pioneer’s only scorer in double digits, finishing with 10 on a night the Lady Mustangs never got comfortable, shooting 11-of-39 with 17 turnovers.
