DANVILLE – The Central Lee girls basketball team is on a roll.
The Lady Hawks upset West Burlington at home in the final seconds in a makeup game Monday night 55-54, and then rolled to a 49-45 win over Danville Tuesday night to move to 10-4 on the year.
One of the more unnoticed aspects of the recent Hawks’ success is that different players are stepping up at different times.
On Tuesday Maura Watkins put up 16 points to lead Central Lee and Mya Lampe, who leads the conference in 3-pointers, hit four enroute to 14 points on the night.
Alivia Myhre had 16 rebounds to go with her five points.
Danville led by a bucket after the first quarter and the two teams traded buckets throughout the second quarter with Danville holding onto a 29-26 lead at the break.
The Hawks’ defense went to work in the third period holding Danville to just six points, while Watkins put up five of Central Lee’s 10 points in the period to take a one-point lead 36-35 going into the final period.
Watkins kept the pressure on the Bears with seven more points in the final period to help Central Lee push the lead for the four-point win.
Macy Watkins chipped in with eight points for the Lady Hawks. Makayla Morrison drew all kinds of defensive attention and had just two points on the night, along with Karlie Pohren and Bailey Schwartz to round out the Hawks’ scoring.
Makenzie Morris led Danville with 16 points, while Ava Smith added 13.
