From start to finish Friday night, the Sabetha girls’ basketball team never trailed and picked up a critical 44-31 Big 7 league win over ACCHS in Effingham.  

The Lady Jays started fast jumping out to a 5-0 lead and never looked back, as junior Skylar McAfee tallied 7 first quarter points to give Sabetha a 10-5 lead after one.

Thanks to three ACCHS turnovers in the second quarter the Lady Jays were able to extend their lead to 11 at halftime, 24-13, while McAfee continued her strong play finishing the half with 11 points.

Sabetha pushed their lead to 19 points after three quarters, as ACCHS never threatened in the second half missing five of six attempts from the free throw line in the final two quarters.

The win keeps the Lady Jays (9-6, 7-4 Big 7) in a tie with Royal Valley for fourth in the Big 7, and Sabetha now gets set for a critical matchup with Nemaha Central Tuesday at home. ACCHS (6-8, 3-7) now travels to Jeff West Tuesday.

Sabetha: Skylar McAfee – 13, Kinley Schuette – 9, Morgan Schuette – 7, Hillary Krebs – 5, Maggi Hughes – 5, Jessica Payne – 4.

The Tigers started strong though jumping out to a quick 5-0 lead, but a 3-pointer by Sabetha’s Brett Staullbaumer got the Bluejays started.

The Bluejays worked themselves out to a 12-7 lead after the first quarter, and held the Tiger to just two points in the second quarter to hold a 37-9 lead at halftime putting the game out of reach.
