DRUMMOND – The Lady Trojans ran their record to 4-1 on the year with a 10-point win over Twin Bridges Friday night.
Drummond opened the game by establishing what would eventually be the game’s winning margin, 17-7. But the middle two periods saw the Falcons climb back into the game to trail by two after three quarters, 31-29. That’s when the Lady Trojans regained command of the game and put it away with a 15-7 run over the final eight minutes of play.
“The girls did a lot of good things today we still have some stuff to work on,” said DHS Head Coach Nate Bignell. “They fought through a lot of adversity tonight to get this victory.
“I'm excited to see how they are going to take what we've learned tonight and use it for tomorrow.”
Juniors Hannah Bradshaw and Sydney Phillips were the leading scorers for the locals with 14 and 11 points, respectively.
