Argylls rebound with big win

FAIRMOUNT, Ind. — After a loss to Marion on Friday night, the Madison-Grant girls basketball team bounced back Saturday to destroy Fall Creek Academy 61-13.

Leading 4-2 with 6:10 left in the first quarter, Madison-Grant (1-1) went on an 11-0 run and the game was all but over.

Cheyanne Hasty had six of the Argylls’ first quarter points en route to a 17-4 lead after the first stanza.

The Lady Engineers (0-2) beat themselves with 12 first quarter turnovers and 25 at the half. They found their turnovers would lead them to a 31-6 halftime deficit on Madison-Grant’s homecourt.

The Argylls only had five turnovers at intermission, and the third quarter saw Kaycie Pyle find her groove.

After only scoring six points in the first 16 minutes, Pyle poured in 13 points in the next eight minutes of play. She hit 5-of-6 from the field and all three of her 3-pointers in the quarter.

She propelled her team to a 52-6 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

“It’s like I said after the jamboree, Kaycie Pyle is going to end up at the end of the year being our leading scorer,” said Argylls coach Kyle Douglas. “She’s got the entire skill set to be a complete player. When she’s on, watch out. She can flat out shoot.”

He said that his team found out that when you play the game the right way good things will happen.

“What they got to see tonight was when you do things, the small things, and you do them well, success will come,” said Douglas. “When you do it the right way, you play the game the right way, success will come, and they got to see that tonight.”

Douglas said that after a strong fourth quarter in the Marion game in which the Argylls outscored the Giants 17-5 and after a good bounce back game Saturday, he feels like his team has a chance to make some noise this season.

“This team has a chance to be special, because they’re a team,” said the Madison-Grant coach. “They don’t give up. They get after you defensively. They never stop. They never stop pressuring. They never stop doing things the right way, and it shows.”

Douglas said his team hasn’t been perfect, but his goal is to see improvement, and to this point that has happened.

“We have to improve every time we step on the court, and (Friday) night (against) Marion we improved, tonight we improved,” he said. “I wasn’t too happy with the first half and the third quarter came those starters got back out there, and you could tell we improved in the first half. That’s all we can ask.”

Douglas said that his team’s focus shifts to next Friday’s game against the Tipton Blue Devils, and he hopes the Argylls continue to see the same improvement as they’ve seen to this point in the season.
