Wood leads Pioneers past Ashe girls

by Steve Behr Sports Editor

WEST JEFFERSON -- Savanna Wood's goal as a Watauga golfer is to shoot a low score. In her past two basketball games, she's been the high scorer for the Pioneers.


The junior scored 18 points in visiting Watauga's 56-25 victory over Ashe Wednesday night at Ashe's court. Just one night earlier, Wood scored 25 points, but it was in a loss to Wilkes Central.


Wednesday night, Wood was one of three Pioneers to score in double figures. Hannah Margolis added 16 points and Danielle Welsh added 10 points.


But it was Watauga's defense that made the difference Wednesday night. Watauga's zone gave the Huskies problems for most of the game.


It was particularly tough on Ashe in the final three quarters. After scoring 14 points in the first quarter, the Huskies scored just two in the second period, five points in the third quarter and four in the fourth quarter.


Watauga pulled away from Ashe by taking a 22-14 lead in the first quarter. It was 28-16 at halftime and 36-21 in the third quarter when the Pioneers pulled away in the fourth. Watauga outscored Ashe 18-4 in the fourth quarter.


Paige Spell led Ashe with six points. Morgan Hudler added five for the Huskies.


Watauga plays at Alexander Central on Friday.
