Macks Creek edges out Weaubleau in the Hermitage Tourney

The Macks Creek girls’ basketball team was back in tournament action Tuesday night and the night went well for the Pirates as they topped Weaubleau 47-43 in the opening round of the Hermitage Tournament.

Macks Creek had consistent production from a number of different contributors in the win as junior Shelby Willis led the scoring attack with 16 points while freshman Jesse Willis added 15 and junior Kali Eidson recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The win puts the Pirates at 3-2 for the season and they will take on host Hermitage in the next round on Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.

Versailles falls to Richland

Versailles hosted Richland on their home floor Monday night and walked away with a 71-30 defeat.

Despite the tough loss, Versailles coach Tim Spiers said he saw some good things from his club.

“This is the most points we have scored this year and probably the best we have looked for a whole game,” the coach stated. “We struggled at the free throw line and did not block out very well, but this was the best we have run our offense.”

Cheyenne Espinosa lead the Tigers with nine points and Carrie Hoffa knocked down eight points of her own.

Versailles (0-4) hosts Cole Camp Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.
