Potter-Dix junior Madison Williamson is the Lady Coyotes' leading scorer.

After a week filled with cancellations of games due to the recent snowstorm that blasted through the panhandle, the Potter-Dix Lady Coyotes finally got back on the court Monday night, hosting the Lady Longhorns of Kimball High School. The Lady Coyotes have struggled a bit to start the season, only earning one win against three losses. But the Lady Longhorns have had an even tougher time, with no wins in five games so far.

The first quarter of the game featured tough defensive play by both teams, with the Lady Coyotes pressuring the Lady Longhorns, causing turnovers and preventing any good shot opportunities. The first quarter ended with the Lady Longhorns going scoreless, while the Lady Coyotes were able to put up four points. The second quarter had Potter-Dix get into a rhythm on offense, moving the ball well and getting good looks while putting up 12 points in the period while limiting the Kimball squad to just four points, to go into the break up 16-to-4.

The second half again featured tough defense, but the Potter-Dix girls were able to put up 8 points against the Kimball girls' three to increase their lead to 24-to-7. The final period had Kimball score a bit more, getting 10 points against the Lady Coyotes' 9, ending the game in a 33-to-17 Lady Coyote victory. Potter-Dix moves their record to 2-and-3 while Kimball remains winless at 0-and-6. Kimball juniors Grace Anderson and Julia Winstrom each had six points in the loss.

Potter-Dix is next scheduled to travel to Grant to match up against Perkins County on January 3, while Kimball will host South Platte on January 3.
