Lexington’s Lady Eagles won the first two games of the Lexington tourney just like last weekend in Dime Box. This time they met Leander Vandegrift in the finals. The results were the same, Vandegrift 57 Lexington 27. The Leander five jumped out to a quick lead, topping Lexington 23-8 in the first period. A 17-2 spanking in the second quarter gave Vandegrift a 40-10 halftime lead. The two teams played evenly in the last half, each scoring 17 points. Deja Griffin was the top scorer for Lexington with eight points.

The girls have now won eight games this season while losing six. A big improvement from last season when they won only five all season long.

The Lady Eagles started their trip through the Lexington Tourney with a 52-30 win over Burton Thursday night. Emilie Bell rang up 16-points in Lexington’s seventh win of the season. Deja Griffin also had a big hand in the win with 10-points. Griffin also pulled in six rebounds for Lexington in the opening round match.

Lexington won the game with a big 18-point second quarter. The Lady Eagles doubled up Burton in the period. Lexington then systematically moved ahead each of the remaining periods.

Lexington defeated Flatonia 43- 27 in Friday’s semifinal game. Bell again took the scoring honors with 14 points. Griffin and Angel Parks were near double figures with nine-points each. The win propelled Lexington into the tourney finals.
