The hard work over a season resulted in the Leyton Lady Warrior Girls Basketball team compiling a 14-and-5 record, earning them a bye until the Championship Game on Thursday in the D2-11 Subdistrict Tournament. The Lady Warriors look to have an easy path to a Subdistrict title, and a District Final game, as Thursday's game could end up just being a formality as the Lady Warriors surge into the post-season.
The Lady Warriors were on the road last Thursday for their final regular-season match up, traveling up to Oshkosh for a contest with the Garden County Lady Eagles. The 9-win Garden county team was no match for the Lady Warriors, as they quickly built a 12-to-6 lead at the end of the first period. A tight second quarter kept Garden County in the game, but they trailed 21-to-14 at the end of the first half. Garden County would need a big third quarter to have a chance in the game, but the Leyton defense denied them scoring opportunities as Lady Warriors increased their lead after three quarter to 36-to-24. Leyton stayed steady in the fourth and did not let up, taking away the victory by a final score of 49-to-33.
Leyton will await the winner of second seed Potter-Dix and third seed Banner County's matchup on Tuesday. Most likely, Potter-Dix will get past the winless Banner County squad to set a match up with Leyton. The last time the teams met was on January 13 in Potter, and the Lady Warriors routed the Lady Coyotes by 30 points, 51-to-21.
