Hayes Sisters Combine For 41 Points As East Hamilton Clips Page, 64-55

Madison Scores 23, McKenna Gets Career-High 18 In Victory

Saturday, November 17, 2018 - by Larry Fleming

When teams face East Hamilton’s Lady Hurricanes this season, they automatically will try to control the Hayes sisters defensively.

Page didn’t fare so well with that Saturday.

Madison Hayes, a highly recruited junior, and McKenna Hayes, a promising freshman, combined for 41 points as East Hamilton rallied in the second half to beat the Lady Patriots, 64-55, in a Hall of Champions basketball game at Cookeville High School.

McKenna Hayes’ 18 points was a career high and she knocked down a game-high six 3-pointers, five coming in the second half and three in the fourth period, in helping the Lady Canes to win their second game to open the season.

She did not score from inside the long-distance arc.

Madison Hayes, who scored 34 points in East Hamilton’s season-opening win against Hardin Valley on Tuesday, turned in a consistent offensive effort with seven points in the first period, nine in the second and seven in the third for a game-high 23 points.

Eliziah Laboo scored 12 points for the Lady Canes, six in each half.

Stephanie Garland led Page (1-1) with 21 points and put up 12 in the first half when Page took a 19-18 lead into halftime.

The Lady Patriots were 8 for 8 at the free-throw line and made eight 3-pointers, one less than the Lady Canes registered.
