Weston 65 Dodson 23
At this point of the season it looks like it is safe to say that Weston is better than Dodson. This is evidenced by the Lady Wolves dominating the Lady Panthers by 42 points on their home floor only four days after winning by 44 in Dodson.
Single digits scoring! It was an aggressive defensive effort by the Lady Wolves that paved the way as Weston limited the Lady Panthers to single digits in every quarter. Counting the last three quarters of their first game it extends the streak of not allowing double digits to Dodson in a quarter for seven straight frames.
Briley is best! Nine players scored for Weston but none as much or as often as Briley Peterson who scored a game high 17 points – all in the first half that saw Weston race to a 41-16 lead. Emma Kate McBride drained four long three pointers to check in with 15 followed by 11 from Mallory Tolar.
Mary Catherine Hay scored six, as did Faith Beamesderfer, whose pair of three pointers gave her a new season high in points. Lakerria Austin added five, Jacie Ledford and Sara Beth Bond scored two and Lainee Trosclair made a free throw to round out the scoring for Weston. Janiyah Weary scored 12 to lead Dodson with Sadie Beaubonef getting five, Logan Womack four and Jaden Graham two.

Quitman 55 D’Arbonne Woods 36
There is no place like home! This is not referring to being called the home team like Quitman was when they played at Jonesboro-Hodge three days before that saw Quitman lose their first of the year after six straight victories. No! What we are talking about is actually being home – in your own gym and dressing in your own locker room! It was just what the doctor ordered as Quitman started back up their “giant killer” act by comfortably downing Class 2A, D’Arbonne Woods by nearly twenty.
Bethany Leach who seemingly gets better each game once again led Quitman in scoring with 24 points including 12 in the final frame on four baskets and four for four shooting from the line. Long range marksman Clara Womack nailed three treys to score 18 and Brayli Stewart added nine. Cali Deal and Emma Carter scored a basket each. D’Arbonne Woods fell to 0-6 on the year.
Charity not free! One major difference in the game was what took place at the charity stripe. For D’Arbonne Woods the price they paid was not free of charge by any means of the imagination. Actually they paid dearly from the free throw line as Quitman made 9 of 14 (64%) compared to DWC sinking only 6 of 24 (25%) foul shots.
