Katy falls to No. 11 Dulles in bi-district playoffs

Posted

MISSOURI CITY – Katy’s girls basketball team had a size advantage against No. 11 state-ranked Dulles in their Class 6A bi-district playoff game Thursday, but Dulles’ defense and shooting were too much for the Tigers to overcome.

Dulles created several turnovers and made 12 3-pointers to top Katy, 65-39, at Hopson Field House to remain undefeated and move on to the area round.

Dulles improved to 23-0. Katy finished its season, 11-10. The Tigers played the Vikings tough, but just didn’t have enough offense to keep up with Dulles’ hot shooting.

Dulles made seven three-pointers in the first half, with junior guards Nya Threatt, Jakiya Thompson and Peyton Overton each hitting two treys. Senior guard Victoria Moore also hit two 3s and scored 10 points in the half to help the Vikings to a 21-9 lead early in the second quarter.

Katy responded with a couple of layups by senior guard Sasha Fernandez and a 3-pointer by junior forward Darcy Swanson, keeping the Tigers within striking distance with a 27-16 halftime deficit.

The 3-point barrage by Dulles kept coming in the second half, however, as the Vikings made three more triples in the third quarter. Thompson hit a pair of treys and junior guard Dai Dai Powell hit one as Dulles scored 19 points in the period to take a 46-29 lead.

Threatt took over in the fourth quarter, scoring on four slashing layups off of steals to build as much as a 21-point lead. Powell and junior guard Kaylie Johnson each added a 3-pointer in the quarter.

Katy junior guard Ashlei Angel and sophomore forward Lyric Barr combined for eight points in the fourth quarter.

Threatt led the Vikings with 18 points, with Thompson scoring 16 points and Moore with 12. Fernandez and Barr led Katy with eight points each, with Swanson, senior guard Amber Bourgeois and sophomore post Brianna Nelson all getting five points each.
