PRESCOTT – The Lee Williams Lady Vols defense has come to rule the day. It is what they set their game plan on and what makes their offense run. Getting stops and forcing turnovers is how they will win games this year. Tuesday night they went on the road and defeated Prescott, 40-27.
After struggling offensively for most of the game, Lee Williams (10-6 4A Conference, 1-2 Grand Canyon Region) tightened up on the defensive end of the floor after the Badgers (2-10, 0-4) took a 26-25 lead in the third quarter.
The Lady Vols went on a 15-3 run in the fourth quarter to close out the game. Chania Scott and Sadie Snay lead the Vols in scoring with 14 and 13 points, respectively. Madi Arave and Kristin Finch each had four, and Kaylee Bond, Siava Allen tallied two and Cassidy Torrey added one.
The Lady Vols will play another region game at Mohave at 7 p.m. Friday.
