The Boyd Lady Broncos got revenge on the Covenant Lady Lions on Thursday night. Boyd Christian hosted the high school game and came away with a 46-23 victory behind 16 points from Kinslee Grissom and 14 from Audrey Durham.


The last time they played, Covenant earned the win.


The game started evenly with both teams showing good defense. They ended the first quarter tied, but that’s when Boyd took control. The Lady Broncos started to get aggressive in the second quarter which offset Covenant’s more controlled nature.


The Lady Broncos made many steals against the Lady Lions, trying to intercept every pass. Boyd’s Anna Jones put up almost half of Boyd’s points in the second quarter, waiting under the goal to take a shot.


Boyd was leading 26-11 at halftime.


Covenant was able to slow Boyd down in the second half by adjusting to the more chaotic gameplay.


Covenant’s Savannah Duggin was able to control the ball for the Lady Lions in the third quarter and she landed a 3-pointer.Although they slowed Boyd down, the Lady Lions couldn’t score like they normally can.


By the fourth quarter, Covenant’s Addison Smith managed to rebound and then score a 3-pointer over Boyd, but Boyd’s Kinslee Grissom and Syd Durham both made shots thanks to turnovers.


Boyd’s Cydney Perry stole the ball on Covenant’s side and ran the ball almost the full court and made a layup.


The game ended with Boyd beating Covenant 46-23.
