DeKalb County guard Alex Meadows began the game with a 3-pointer from the right corner, but Bree Smith promptly tied the game by banking in a 3-pointer from the top of the key on the other end.Meadows drained her second 3-pointer from the left corner to make it 6-3, but Wilkinson then started inserting her will.Wilkinson cut the deficit to one with a steal and layup, then gave Warren County its first lead later in the quarter with a three-point play.Wilkinson’s hoop and harm ended up sparking an 8-4 run to end the quarter as the Lady Pioneers led 13-11. Wilkinson’s free-throw line jumper with 2:36 left in first provided the two-point margin.Dishman was the lone Lady Pioneer to score in the first six minutes of the second quarter.
