Your Standley Lake Gator JV and Varsity team took on the Golden Demons on 2/12/16 in the Swamp. It was the parent and senior appreciation night as well. Golden HS does not carry a Level III team.
In the JV game, the Demons started off with a pair of baskets. Jennifer Holguin converted a Haley Rountree pass for a three and another Rountree dish for a bucket to get the Gators a lead 5-4. Golden drew a foul and hit their free throws. Holguin ("Texas") regained the lead for the Gators with a trey off a steal. The Demons tied it with a hoop to end the 1st. In the 2nd, Golden drew another foul. With the Gators' aggressive defense, the Demons were in the bonus and hit both 1-1 free throws. Again, they drew a foul and converted another pair of free throws. Adding on, they hit another basket before Nikki Silva (2 pts, 2 reb, 2 steals) stopped the run with a bucket (assist by Kaitlyn Maldonado (asst, 2 reb)). With 0:36 left, Golden drew another foul and hit a double bonus free throw to make it 10-15 at half time. In the 3rd, the Demons struck first with a hoop. Then, the Gators ramped it up getting a free throw from Halie Blincoe, three from Lina Vogler (assist by Haley Rountree (3 asst, 4 reb), another three by Vogler to tie it, a pair of free throws by Vogler, and a putback by Vogler to make it 21-17. Apparently the Golden coach was incensed and drew a technical foul. Jazmyn Ruybal (1 pt, 3 reb, 4 steals) sank a free throw to end the scoring in the 3rd 22-17. Sensing an advantage, the Gators kept up the energy getting another three from Jennifer Holguin (assist by Kelsey Clements). After a Demon three, the Gators got a trey by Lina Vogler (assist by Clements (2 asst, 5 reb, 2 steals)) and a basket by Vogler (assist by Jennifer Holguin (11 pts, asst, 5 reb, 3 steals)). Golden drew a foul and hit a free throw. Lina Vogler responded with a three to cause the Gator faithful to erupt in appreciation. The Demons drew another foul and hit a free throw. Then Vogler (20 pts, 6 reb, 2 steals) stole the ball and hit a layup. Halie Blincoe (2 pts, asst, reb, steal) drew a foul and hit a double bonus free throw, making it 4-on-5 the rest of the way, since Golden only suited 5 players for the game. Easing up perhaps, the Gators allowed a three and a layup, and a double bonus free throw to end it 36-28. In the effort, the Gators were 12-63 (19%) from the field and 5-12 (42%) from the line. The Demons shot 8-30 (27%) from the field and 10-22 (45%) from the line. The Gators' record improves to 2-13, 2-9. This was probably the Gators most complete game of the year.

Then, Hanna Davis hit a three (assist by Karah Burkel) and converted a steal into a basket. Savannah Martin followed suit with a steal and layup. Karah Burkel hit a bucket and converted a Jackie Paik pass for another. Paik converted a steal going coast-to-coast to end the 1st 13-4. In the 2nd, Martin picked off a pass to go coast-to-coast for a hoop. Again Paik (4 pts, asst, 3 reb, 4 steals) did for a layup. The Bulldogs stopped the 17 point Gator run with a jumper to make it 17-6. Hayley Davis converted an Aly Ernster pass for a basket. Then Hanna Davis got a nice drive and layup, and Savannah Martin ended the half with a putback getting it to 23-6. In the 3rd, Arvada started with a putback. Martin converted a pair of steals for buckets. Hanna Davis got a nice pass from Martin (10 pts, asst, 2 reb, 10 steals) for a hoop, and Karah Burkel (8 pts, 4 reb, steal) scored a basket and a putback. Arvada got a free throw before Hanna Davis and Hayley Davis (6 pts, 10 reb, steal, block) scored buckets. After a Bulldog timeout, Hayley Davis knocked down a hoop.
