Sawyer ended the night with 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 steals. The Nettes held the Lady Cougars to only one point in the first quarter. Christoval averages 70 points per game. Sudan led Christoval with a score of 7-1 going in to the 2nd quarter. The Nettes’ defense held the Lady Cougars until 5 minutes left in the half when Christoval went on a shooting spree. They put up 14 points quickly giving Sudan a 1-point lead going in to the half with a score of 16-15. In the words of Nettes’ Coach Benny Lockhart, the Nettes “lost their minds” and blew their lead.
