Sophomore Kelsey Johnson also poured in 11 points and was the third Lady Eagle to score in double figures.

Junior Reilly Ronan and sophomore Mia Kosoglow, also were involved in the scoring spree adding 8 points each.

“I was very happy with the energy we played with. Offensively, I thought once we hit a few shots we got confidence and played with it,” said Coach Rhoades.

Tyrone had nine players record points, which showed team selflessness and the ability to move the ball. Also, that the team has a very deep bench and many reliable players they can count on during crunch time.

“We rebounded very well and had many girls step up and score for us. That is exactly what we need in order to have a successful season,” said senior Payton Wagner who also dominated the boards.

The Lady Eagles also, performed well on the defensive side of the ball holding PO’s top scoring junior Halle Herrington to only 5 made field goals.
