Acey Jellison

Seymour's Acey Jellison (32) holds ball after getting fouled by Melcher-Dallas.

Talk about a model of consistency. No. 4 Seymour has dominated all of their opponents in nearly the same fashion and it was no different on Wednesday night when they would dispose of Melcher-Dallas 69-33.

The win was their 10th of the season and it was the ninth time they have scored more than 60 points and the 10th time they have held their opponent under 40 points.

The two played a relatively even first quarter with Seymour holding a 16-12 lead after the first eight minutes. Eight of the Saints’ 12 points came from Kynser Reed as she would lead Melcher-Dallas with 18 points on the night.

Seymour would kick it into gear in the second quarter outscoring Melcher-Dallas 26-9 to hold a 42-21 halftime lead. The Warriorettes were much sharper on defense as they started forcing turnovers and causing the Saints to take some unnecessary frustration fouls.

Riley Jewett put an exclamation mark on the half by knocking down a buzzer-beater three from the left wing. Jewett scored 12 of her team-high 16 points in the second quarter.

Seymour opened up the second half on a 9-0 run and wouldn’t look back, outscoring Melcher-Dallas 27-12 in the half to earn their seventh win by 30 or more points this season.

Joining Jewett in double figures was Nadia Howell and Acey Jellison, who both finished with 12 points.

No. 4 Seymour (10-0) will host Diagonal (9-2) at Howar Junior High in Centerville on Saturday at 4 p.m.
