WHITE HOUSE – The new year could not have started any better for the White House Lady Devils Friday night at home, running ahead to a 17-0 lead in a blowout win over East Robertson.
White House won its fourth game in six tries and earned a season sweep over East Robertson with a 56-31 victory, with a return to District 9-AA play looming on Tuesday when Westmoreland comes to town.
Junior forward Emma Wall powered her way to 18 points for the Lady Devils to lead all scorers, and White House emptied its bench with every player except for one getting into the scoring column. Senior Allyson Trimmer opened the game with a three-pointer, but then Wall added 15 points in the first half alone to build a 35-19 edge at the break.
The White House defense was stifling in the first quarter as East Robertson barely got off a shot, scoring on a free throw by senior Ashlynn Wright with one minute to go in the opening frame to make it 17-1. Wright had 13 points to lead the Lady Indians but like three other teammates, had four fouls. Both teams were in foul trouble as there were 47 called in the game total.
White House extended the lead to 43-23 by the end of three and then got contributions from freshmen primarily late in the fourth quarter to put the game away.
Trimmer ended the game with nine points and classmate Grace Maupin had eight. Starters Baylee Miller and Alexis Bess also had two each.
Hannah France, Bailey Newman, Danielle Williams and Chloe Hart all came off the bench with three points each, and Audrey Hudson scored two, Faith Johnstone two, and Rachel Williams one. Hannah Crabtree played significantly but did not score.
East Robertson got nine from senior post Riley Cook, three from McKenzie Hebert, and two from Savannah Hinkle, Sabrina Abney, and one from Mac Hinkle and Kylie Perry.
East Robertson dropped to 1-10 overall and travels to Kenwood Saturday.
White House (5-9, 1-2) welcomes Westmoreland (10-6, 3-1) Tuesday at 6 p.m., then has road games at Greenbrier (9-5, 1-2) on Friday and at Harpeth (0-15) the following Tuesday before coming back home to face third-ranked Cheatham County (13-2) on Jan. 18th.
