GAME STORY: Abilene High girls rally past Weatherford for first win

The process wasn’t always pretty, but the result was beautiful for coach Terri Raughton and the Abilene High Lady Eagles, who rallied past Weatherford 43-41 for their first win of the season Saturday at Eagle Gym.

AHS, which came into the contest at 0-4, including a 61-49 loss at Keller Central on Friday, saw a comfortable lead evaporate in the second half against the Lady Kangaroos. But behind 19-point performance by standout guard Trakenya Roberson, the Lady Eagles were able to claw their way to the victory.

A 9-4 third-quarter run for Weatherford saw the AHS’ seven-point halftime lead reduced to two, and a 5-0 Lady Roos run to the start the fourth put the Lady Eagles in a 33-30 hole with 6:13 remaining the game. But Raughton’s squad answered with a 10-4 run over the next five minutes and held off Weatherford from there for the win.
