EL DORADO — Savannah Scott bucketed 11 of her game-high 14 points in the second half Monday as host Union Mine easily defeated Marysville 55-15 in girls hoops action at the Snake Pit.

Scott’s game-high came on the heels of knocking down Saturday’s game-winning three-pointer against Del Campo, part of a whirlwind week in the Scott household as sister Aleigh, playing JV, also had a three to win one game and sank two free throws with seconds left for the go-ahead points in another.

Marysville wasn’t the best barometer for the Diamondbacks Monday as the Indians struggled in all facets; taking five minutes and 15 seconds to score in the first quarter, six minutes in the second and nearly 10 in the second half.

Union Mine won its third straight of a four-game-in-six-night homestand.

“Tonight really didn’t challenge us and was kind of ugly but every win is a good win,” D’back coach Chris Del Rio said. “Our defense which is quick, scrappy and takes risks has been really good this year and has kept us in games.”

Kinsey Del Rio’s five points off the bench staked Union Mine to a 10-2 lead after one quarter. In the second, Trisha Tolbert opened with nine straight, including a three, as the home team extended.

The lead was 20 after Katie Parker stuck a wing jumper, was fouled and drained the freebie. Scott then found Kaitlin Lishman inside and Courtney Bruno on the break as the D’backs went to the locker room up 26-6.

The Indians failed to crack Union Mine’s pressure defense as Scott, Kinsey, Del Rio, Bruno, Jordyn Trulli and Yvonne Taylor came up with numerous steals. Offensively, of the 10 D’backs suited up, nine scored.

It was all Union Mine in the third quarter as Bruno went glass, Scott converted a 3-point play and drove in for a layin, Bruno followed in a miss, Parker hit from the wing, Lishman scored down low and Hannah Bird’s basket made it 41-6 going to the fourth.

Scott hit two treys in the last quarter and Stephanie Preacher one as the D’backs coasted to the win.

“We wanted to get the ball into the post more (tonight) but if I had the opportunity and my feet were set I looked for my shot,” Scott said. “I thought we played down to their level at the start but had a better mindset in the second half and played our game.”

After Scott, Tolbert had nine points; Kinsey, Lishman and Bruno each had six; Parker added five; Taylor, four; Preacher, three; and Bird, two points.

Notes: For the record, in a one-on-one game between sisters, Savannah says she prevails.
