The Prescott Lady Badgers overcame a scoreless first quarter to come back and beat the Lee Williams Volunteers 42-39 in the Badger Dome last night.

Hollie Dalton led Prescott with 17, but the Lady Badgers could not get the lid off the bucket for the first eight minutes. Trailing 10-0, Prescott scored and closed the gap to six, trailing 19-13 at the half.

"We turned the ball over too much and gave up too many second chance points in the first quarter. The girls never gave up though, and showed tremendous effort and heart while they fought back for the win over the next three quarters,"  said Prescott coach Bobbi Yoder.

The Lady Badgers inched closer in the third behind Dalton's seven points, trailing 27-22 to start the fourth. The final eight minutes saw Prescott scoring 20 points to finally climb out of the hole they dug in the opening quarter.

Kira Reily had a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Hollie Dalton had 5 rebounds and 2 blocks to go with her 17 points. Alisa LeBlanc scored 8. Eve Hawker had a basket and three steals.

One big noticeable improvement was the Lady Badgers free throw numbers. Prescott made 17-18, a 94% shooting percentage. The success at the line made the difference.

Yoder added, "It was a good win for us."
