Talking about the differences between the Mount Olvie game and the Pope John game, Emily Dilger said they were able to get more penetration throughout the game.  Erin Scott added the girls “attacked the zone better than in the past and found the open players.”

When they left the floor at halftime the score was 20-14.  The girls held the lead from the start.  They were strong defensively getting the rebounds and forcing turnovers midcourt and on the throw in.
