After a slow start Tuesday night at Del Sol High School, 12-12 after one period, the Virgin Valley High School Lady Dawgs jumped on the  Dragons and took a 28-18 lead at the break. The Dawgs would not trail the rest of the way as they won easily 55-34.

Kourtney Metzger led the Dawgs in scoring with 16 points followed by guards Emma Barnum and Spencer Green with 10 and 9 points respectively. Bernice Fiso added eight followed by Briana Todd with six points.

The win gives the Lady Dawgs a 7-2 record good enough for second place in Sunrise League play, going into Friday’s match up with archrival Moapa in the Pirate’s new den.
