Parshall maintained its double digit lead in the third quarter before exploding for 22 points in the third quarter. The Lady Braves’ defense held the Lady Trojans to just 17 points in the second half for the easy 30 point win, at 66-36.
Cheyenne Packineau led all scorers with 28 points while Alexis Woods and Michelle Risan both scored 11 for the Lady Braves. Mariah Sellon led the Lady Trojans with 18 points.
