While playing the same opponent twice in one week could prove to be a problem for most teams, it was just the opposite for the Piedmont basketball teams last Friday night on the campus of Western Heights High School.

Playing Western Heights for the second time in as many days, the No. 7 Lady Wildcats recorded their seventh straight victory, while the Wildcats claimed another victory over their new found rivals in the Jets.

Piedmont’s Abbie Hall splits the Lady Jets defense applied by Shawntel Gaines (11) and Laniesha Webster during the first half Friday night at Western Heights High School.

The Lady Jets might have been able to keep the score close for a period of time, but it was only a matter of time before PHS took over.

And that’s exactly what happened in the first quarter, after WHHS took a 5-4 advantage with 4:30 remaining, the Lady Wildcats went on a 10-0 run to race out to a 14-5 lead, and eventually another victory.

Western Heights apparently learned from its initial meeting against Piedmont, as the Lady Jets tried to employ their own pressure defense on the Lady Wildcats throughout the first half.

However, too much transition offense and not enough defenses, showed that the Lady Jets plan wasn’t going to get off the ground on the night.

At the halftime break, it was all Piedmont as they led 32-12, before increasing the lead to 49-24 heading into the fourth quarter.

Hayden Priddy led the offense for the Lady Wildcats with 14 points in the contest, followed by Kayden Carver with 13 points.

Alex Hall chipped in 12 points with Bre Reid adding nine points.

Western Heights was led by Karen Hopkins with 12 points in the game against Piedmont.

Anytime you play sometime three times in a season, things are bound to get physical, and a little heated.

For the No. 3 Wildcats and the No. 11 Jets, this was simply just another chance to bring out the best in one another Friday night at Western Heights High School just outside of Oklahoma City.

Once again though, it was the Wildcats proving to be too much down the stretch as they kept the Jets in check all the way, as they cruised to a victory.

A major part of the success for Wildcats in the game against the Jets was thanks in part to the play of Adrion Williams. Williams scored 28 points on the night to lead all scorers as PHS kept up its most recent winning streak.

At the end of the first quarter the Wildcats led 17-10 before taking a 31-23 advantage into the locker room at halftime.

PHS led 43-34 going into the fourth quarter.

Cameron Peters added 15 points on the night for the Wildcats against the Jets, with Jayden Shively scoring seven points in the contest.

Dupree Millhouse and Kendell Franklin both added five points for the Wildcats.
