Morrison’s Lady Eagles were flying high when they met West’s Lady Wizards on Tuesday night, commandeering a 32-10 victory at Bobby Ray Elementary.The Lady Eagles played a fundamentally sound ballgame, executing well and making the inside shot consistently. Always a trademark of the Lady Eagles, their hard pressing, hands-up, aggressive defense continued to do well for them, causing turnovers they capitalized on repeatedly.Heading up the Lady Eagle offense was Jessica Alvarez with a game-high 12 points. West’s Kyleigh Ramsey wasn’t too far off in individual scoring, making 8 points to make up most of West’s total.
