Alex Haymon scored 20 points for the Goose Creek Memorial girls basketball team Friday night.

Normally, that would mean better things for the Lady Patriots, but not this night against District 22-5A leaders Friendswood.

The visiting Mustangs invaded the GCM gym and raided it to the tune of a 49-23 whitewash as the Lady Patriots (15-14, 6-3) saw only three points scored from the rest of its roster in the defeat.

GCM is in a tie for second place in the district with Texas City.

“We started off really slow and nobody was looking to score: We looked intimidated from the get go,” GCM 

head coach Briceida Razo said. “We have to go back to the drawing board and make some adjustments so we can make sure we finish in the top four.

“We weren’t taking care of our defensive assignments and we had 17 turnovers at halftime. We just weren’t taking care of the ball. We weren’t looking to score or pass. We just wanted to get rid of the ball and wanted no business with it.”

GCM trailed by 15 to the Mustangs at halftime. It lost the first matchup 52-39 at Friendswood.

“We are going to go back and work on fundamentals and pick up our intensity,” Razo said. “We have to assume everyone is out to get us. We will play with that mentality moving forward
