Lady Knights Use Long Ball To Defeat Pioneer

The LadyKnights improved their record to 2-0 after another scrappy, physical win over the Pioneer Panthers Tuesday night 52-33.

The defense started out strong again as Southwood was able to hold Pioneer to only 3 points through the first period, and only 12 at halftime.

Unfortunately, the lid seemed to be on both baskets, as Southwood only led 15-12 at the break. The scoring would take off in the 3rd quarter as Erin Lehner would open with a 3 pointer before MaKenna Pace carried the load. MaKenna connected on 3 key 3pointers and 2 free throws to win the quarter 19-11 to extend the lead to double digits. After the lead hovered around 10 points for most of the 4th quarter, the LadyKnights forced several key turnovers that led to some easy baskets to close the game on a 10-2 run and win by the final margin of 19 points.
