Junior Lady Pirates win conference
The Drew Central Junior Lady Pirates (11-4, 4-0) won the regular season conference crown with a 44-24 win at Camden Harmony Grove last Tuesday.
Both teams were undefeated in conference play entering the game, but Drew Central held Harmony Grove scoreless in the first half en route to a 29-0 lead at halftime.
"We played extremely well in the first half," said head coach Michael Goad. "That's probably the best we've played all year. The best half for sure.
"We were both undefeated (in conference play) coming into the game, so we expected a battle. We kind of let the air out of them the way we came out and jumped on them so fast."
The 29-point deficit proved too much for Harmony Grove to overcome.
Adruna Simpson led Drew Central with 16 points, 11 of which came in the first half.
Aaliyah Block chipped in 10 points in the win.
