The A team downed Derby 46-6 and Arkansas City 28-23. “The girls came out strong (against Derby), dominating the game from the beginning and outscoring Derby 12-0 in the first quarter,” Newton coach Bob Graber said. “The girls controlled the boards, outrebounding Derby 49-13, and stealing the ball 26 times. We did a much better job of limiting mental mistakes and caused Derby problems with their defense. “(The Arkansas City game) was not a pretty game to watch. They play and call the game differently down there. It was a very physical game. The girls bent a little, but didn’t break. It took a half of play for us to adjust to the physical play. The girls finished 2012 with a 5-2 record. They have eight days now to get healthy and rejuvenated for the 2013 part of the season.” The B team downed Derby 18-17 and Arkansas City 31-11. “Suffering from a difficult night of shooting and turnovers, the Lady Railer B team battled a tough Derby team and trailed most of the game,” Newton coach Chris Headrick said. “Keeping their composure during the final seconds of the game, the Lady Railers had a 3-point shot by Celina Perez swish to win the game by one point. “Balanced scoring and a good defensive effort resulted in the seventh win for the Lady Railers B team,” Headrick said of the B game. The A team is 5-2, 2-1 in Pioneer League Division I play. The B team is 7-0, 3-0 in Pioneer League play.
