No contest: OHS rolls in 60-point win

Gracie Martin gets by her defender for a layup during Oneida’s 83-23 win over Jellico at OHS Gymnasium on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 | Sarah Dunlap/IH

Twelve different Oneida players scored points, and the Lady Indians lit up the scoreboard Tuesday (November 20) with an 83-23 win over Jellico.

It was the most points scored by Oneida since an 86-34 win over the Blue Devils on February 10, and the largest margin-of-victory for the Lady Indians in more than two decades.

Jayden Thomas and Kendyl West each scored 12 points, teaming up for seven of their team’s nine 3-point shots to pace the Lady Indians to the lopsided win.

The outcome of Tuesday’s game was never really in doubt. Thomas and Gracie Martin each scored five points in the first quarter as the Lady Indians jumped to a 24-2 lead.

The second quarter was even more impressive, at least from an offensive perspective. Oneida put 32 points on the board in the 8-minute stanza, with West hitting three 3-pointers and Thomas knocking down three more. 

The second half was all about the Lady Indians’ reserves, and Faith Cross came off the bench to score seven points, while Caroline Keeton scored six more.

Jellico had a devil of a time scoring throughout. The Blue Devils did not have a field goal in the first quarter, and finished with only six for the game after going without again in the fourth quarter. In fact, Jellico only scored twice from inside the 3-point line. 

The win was the second in three tries for Oneida as the Lady Indians entered the Thanksgiving break.

ONEIDA (83): Thomas 12, West 12, Bell 8, Cross 7, Martin 7, Keeton 6, Newport 6, Lamb 6, Boyatt 5, Stiltner 5, Boyatt 4, Wisner 3, Sexton 2.

JELLICO (23): Brandenburg 6, Moses 6, Perkins 4, Henderson 3, Horres 2, Anderson 2.[/s2If]
