Lady Rams absorb 61-12 shellacking against Frenship

Jan. 6—WOLFFORTH, Texas — The bad news is it really hurts to get drilled by 49 points.

The good news is the Portales High Lady Rams are highly unlikely to see another team anywhere close to the talent level of Frenship again this season.

Ranked fourth in Texas Class 6A by MaxPreps — and coming off just their second loss of the campaign — the Lady Tigers put a 61-12 whipping on PHS on Tuesday night.

"Probably 90 percent of their roster is taller than anybody we've got, and more mobile," Portales girls coach Wade Fraze said. "On a positive note we competed pretty well in the fourth quarter."

The Lady Tigers (22-2) substituted liberally in the final stanza — but then they did that most of the night, Fraze noted.

One thing he said his squad did pretty well was guard the 3-point line against a prolific long-range team. Frenship managed just two treys for the game.

Ten players scored for the Lady Tigers, including senior guards Abbi Holder with 16 points and Andie Caddel with 11. Frenship led 16-3 at the quarter and completely dominated play until the final stanza, when the Lady Tigers outscored PHS 7-5.

Junior guard Angel Ornelas accounted for most of what offense the Lady Rams (8-4) managed with seven points. Junior post Evannie Fulfer led the team in rebounds with seven.
