The Madisonville Lady Mustangs won three contests at the 2019 Aggieland Invitational in Bryan-College Station over the weekend with victories over Hudson, Pittsburg and Episcopal and dropped a pair of matchups to Houston Christian High School and Heritage.

The action at Aggieland was Madisonville’s last tournament before the start of district play on Jan. 10.

Jerkayla Dickey and Jyah Burns led the way for the Lady Mustangs in the 45-21 victory over Hudson on Thursday with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Dickey also recorded five steals to lead the team.

Daiona Johnson added seven points of her own along with a team-high five assists. Brianna Johnson led the Lady Mustangs in rebounds with seven.

Defensively, Madisonville allowed just 21 points to Hudson, seven of which came in the first half.

The win meant a matchup with Houston Christian High School on Thursday evening. Despite a strong start in their second contest at Aggieland, the Lady Mustangs managed just four fourth quarter points and fell 49-34.

Khyra Cooper led the way in scoring and steals for Madisonville with 12 and six. Her nine rebounds in the contest was second only to Tra’Shayla Smith’s 10. Smith also added eight points in the loss, good for second on the team. She was followed by Burns with seven.

The team bounced back in a big way Friday with a 70-39 win over Pittsburg. Madisonville set the tone for the entire game in the opening quarter with 30 points in the first eight minutes. Smith’s 22 points led the Lady Mustangs in the convincing win. She was followed by Cooper with 15, Daiona Johnson with 14 and Dickey with 10.

Their final victory of the weekend came against Episcopal Friday night by a score of 43-35. The Lady Mustangs were trailing throughout the contest before a 21-point outburst in the fourth quarter gave them separation.

Defensively, they allowed just 14 points in the entire second half.

Burns led the Lady Mustangs in scoring with 15 points and was followed by Cooper with 13. Cooper was also tied for the team lead in rebounds with six along with Daiona Johnson, who added nine points to the total and five assists. Johnson and Dickey each recorded four steals apiece to lead the team.

Despite another fourth quarter surge on Saturday, Madisonville dropped a one-point contest to Heritage to conclude their action at Aggieland. Their 17-point fourth ultimately ended in a 43-42 defeat.

Cooper led the team in scoring (18), blocks (six) and rebounds (six) in the loss. Dickey added 11 points while Daiona Johnson recorded seven assists. The Lady Mustangs allowed just 12 total points in the second half of the loss.

Madisonville competed in the Division II bracket at Aggieland, which was ultimately won by district opponent Fairfield. College Station was victorious in the Division I bracket for the second consecutive season.

The Lady Mustangs will compete in a pair of single home matchups against China Spring on Friday and Normangee on Tuesday to conclude their non-district schedule.

They will host Mexia at MHS on Jan. 10 to open their district slate.
