The Prairie Home girls junior high basketball team raised its season record to 5-2 by beating the Bunceton Lady Dragons 33-16 Friday night in CCAA action at Prairie Home.
The Lady Panthers trailed Bunceton 4-3 after first period’s end before rallying back with a 9-2 advantage in the second quarter to go up 12-6. Meanwhile, after the Lady Dragons outscored Prairie Home 8-7 in the third, the Lady Panthers again came back with a strong fourth quarter with a 14-2 scoring edge for the victory.
Prairie Home coach Dalton Armontrout said this was overall their best game of the season. “Everyone had their part in it,” Armontrout said. “It was good to see. We cut down on turnovers. We still had 23 but that needs to come down as well. We also moved the ball well on offense and rebounded well. A couple things we need to do better is layups and free throws. We left a lot of points off the board because of missed layups; wide open layups and free throws. We were 7/25 from the line.  We have to be better at the line. We’ll look to continue to add to the win column in the tournament next week.”
Madison Brown finished the game with a double-double for Prairie Home with 20 points and 13 steals. Brown also had five rebounds and one assist.
Paiton Williams added six points, eight rebounds, four steals and one assist while Allison Simmons chipped in five points, 17 rebounds and two steals, Makayla Davis with two points and one rebound and Kamden Holliday with five rebounds and five steals.
Hein had the team-high for Bunceton with 10 points.
