Centertown used a second-half charge to pull away from Morrison in 7-8 grade girls basketball action Tuesday night.
The Lady Warriors held a four-point lead at the half, but won by a comfortable 41-23 margin as eight different players scored.
The game started with both teams handling the ball well. Morrison didn’t have any trouble setting up its offense. The Lady Eagles just couldn’t land a shot.
This led to the Warriors taking an early lead they didn’t relinquish.
The second quarter proved to be different for Morrison as they put up 11 points to Centertown’s 7, closing the gap between them. Centertown still kept the lead thanks to its first-quarter performance.
It was 17-13 at the break.
With Morrison gaining, Centertown turned it up in the third quarter, dominating the game. By the end of the quarter, the Warriors had doubled the Lady Eagles score. Centertown created plenty of turnovers and it looked like the Lady Warrior defense was overwhelming Morrison.
Although, Morrison did match Centertown’s score in the fourth quarter with eight points for each team, they couldn’t take control like the Warriors did early in the game.
Centertown beat Morrison, 41-23.
