Elsewhere, the first time Perry and Northside met – back in late November – the Lady Eagles rolled to a 52-18 win.

Tuesday, at Northside, the Lady Panthers made it a little bit more difficult. Yes, they lost 64-33, but they more than matched that earlier point total in the first half alone.

The Lady Eagles led the game 13-10 after one. Perry had it tied at 22 late in the second but trailed 25-22 at the half.

A 16-3 third-quarter really did the trick for the host. That gave it a 41-25 lead heading into the third quarter, where it out-scored Perry 23-8.

Des-teyn Seaton and Alaya Grane each had 16 to lead the Lady Eagles, who improved to 9-6. The Lady Panthers fell to 5-10.

They led 19-11 after one and 32-26 at the half. They got the edge in the third, 19-15, to lead 51-41 heading into the fourth. There, they outscored the Panthers 21-15 for the win.

Kayleb Jackson led Northside with 11. Gage Williams had 10 and Keron Milton Jr. 9.
