Monitor Staff Reports
MABANK–Third-ranked Martins Mill took a quick lead and added to it throughout a 75-42 win over the hosting Mabank Lady Panthers Tuesday night.
The Lady Panthers were scheduled to play in the Wills Point tournament this weekend before returning home Tuesday, Dec. 7, to host another top-10 squad, fifth-ranked (3A) Bullard Lady Panthers, with a 4:30 p.m. freshman contest opening a three-game slate.
Next weekend, Dec. 9-11, the Lady Panthers will travel to Brownsboro to play in the Great East Texas Shoot-Out before returning to host Wills Point Tuesday, Dec. 14.
Each of the last few years, the Martins Mill Lady Mustangs have secured Class 1A state tournament berths, and they showed superior quickness and excellent court awareness against the Lady Panthers.

In the third quarter, the Lady Panthers tried to chip away at the Lady Mustangs’ lead, but Martins Mill led by 23 going into the fourth quarter and outscored Mabank 15-11 in the final frame to forge the final 27-point margin.

Molly Groom added six points, Cheyenne Alldredge had five, Sara Springer had three. Kourtney Holyfield, Ashton Norman and Alex Brady all had two points, and Kelsey Mitchell chipped in a free throw.
