“I thought the girls played fairly well tonight on defense. In the first half we had a few break downs, but in the second half we played great team defense,” Lynnville-Sully head coach Jerry Hulsing said. “Being able to hold NM to two points in a quarter was big.”

Both team shot 42 percent from the field and hit six free throws. The Hawks held a 33-22 rebounding edge against the Warhawks. They scored 14 second -chance points to North Mahaska’s seven, and converted Warhawk turnovers into 13 points.
