Kanzas Stephens also scored five pints, Kenna Neal and Presley Hall each scored four points and Kiera Anderson added three points. Carly Rogers scored two, Kaelyn Neal scored two and Cheyenne Gearheart added a free throw.
On Friday the Lady Pirate went to Campton to play the Wolfe County Lady Wolves. The Lady Wolves are considered one of the best in the 14th Region and it showed. Powell was on he other end of the spectrum in this contest. Wolfe opened up taking a 25-10 lead and never looked back.
