Freshman Jaida Parker led the team with 18 points, while senior Sydney Shaw scored the second highest with 12.

I think we played very well in the second half, but in the first half we got off to a slow start”

— Sydney Shaw

The Lady Eagles had a rough start to the game, with only 6 points at half time, while Penns Valley had 23.

However, the Lady Eagles battled back in the second half, outscoring Penns Valley 15-8 in the third quarter and 21-17 in the fourth.

“I think we played very well in the second half, but in the first half we got off to a slow start,” said Shaw.

The Lady Eagles dug themselves a hole and were not able to battle back hard enough to get a win. They look to improve on shooting and staying out of foul trouble in the next few games.
