Kora Keith and Emily Madden were both in double figures when Purcell went on the road February 9 to knock off Lindsay, 38-23.

Keith led all scorers with 11 while Madden added 10.

Purcell opened up a 16-13 lead at halftime before taking command in the third and fourth quarters.

“We struggled shooting the ball in this game,” head coach David Sikes said.

“But to me it’s why I’m so proud. We played hard despite not shooting well and did what we had to do to get the job done.”

“They are a solid team that beat us earlier in the year in a back and forth game.

“We were able to beat them at our place a few weeks ago again in a back and forth game. We respect them and I think my girls will be ready.”

The girls are 12-7 heading into the district tournament.

Lindsay pinned a 43-24 loss on Roger Raper’s Dragons, who fell to 12-6 on the season.

“We still haven’t been able to have a legitimate practice in two weeks and with the next round of weather who knows what will happen,” Raper said.

Raper’s Dragons are coming off a 54-35 victory over Marlow last Friday night bouncing back from the loss to Lindsay.

Sophomore Lincoln Eubank, who has been a three point machine of late, went off against the Outlaws draining five buckets from downtown and going 6-6 at the line to lead all scorers in the game.

Mojo Browning found the bottom of the net three times from beyond the arc and finished with a baker’s dozen.

Marlow’s girls pinned a 48-41 loss on the Dragons.

Purcell hosts Davis in the district tournament Friday with the girls starting at 6:30 p.m. and the boys around 8 p.m.
