The Tuloso-Midway Cherokees dominated the H. M. Kingsville Lady Brahmas Friday, 76-20, as the Cherokees remained undefeated in district play.
T-M won the tip-off and Courtney Rhyne scored a 3-pointer for the first score. Kingsville's Margaret Clack took the ball to score the only field goal in the first quarter.
Kingsville could not find the rim the rest of the half. Tuloso-Midway shut down the inside as each Cherokee player had at least three steals before the half, with a team total of 16 steals for the game.
Tuloso-Midway's Katelyn Givens and Brandi Park both scored six points in the first and second quarters each.
After dominating on both ends of the court, the Cherokees found themselves with a commanding 20-point lead in the first quarter.
By halftime, the T-M defense held the Lady Brahmas to only six points, with the score 40-6.
In the third quarter, the Lady Brahmas didn't fare much better, but they managed to score 10 points.
But with Cassie Taylor scoring two 3-pointers and Park putting up lay ups inside, T-M just seemed to have too many offensive weapons.
Kingsville only scored four points in the last quarter while T-M's Jenna Serna doubled that alone, with two 3-pointers and a lay-up.
"They have got a really young team," said T-M Coach Matt Oden, crediting his team's pressure defense for creating the steals.
The Lady Cherokees faced the Calallen Lady Cats at Calallen Tuesday and will go home to play the Robstown Cottonpickers Friday at about 6:30 p.m.
