TMP 56 Abilene Cowgirls 26

Abilene – The Lady Monarchs brought back three starters from a team that went 19-4 a season ago and it showed Friday night in their dominant victory over Abilene.  TMP improved to 9-2 this season with the win in a game that was never close.  The Lady Monarchs got up by as many as 34 points at the end of the 3rd quarter with a 54-20 lead, that led to a running clock in the final quarter.

TMP had three players in double-figures with Sophia Balthazor 18, Jaci VonLintel 12, and Emilee Lane 10. The Cowgirls fell to 3-11 with the loss.  They were led by Jenna Hayes and Claira Dannefer who both finished with 8 points.  They shared the Nex-Tech Wireless Player of the Game Honors.

Abilene Cowboys 47 TMP 43
