East Central scored the game’s first nine points and led 24-9 after eight minutes.  Hope Fox scored 11 in the period for the Trojans, sinking a pair of triples, and also scored on a traditional 3-point play.  Katie Brewer recorded a pair of field goals to lead Batesville with four.

After scoring the final seven points of the first quarter, the Trojans also got a field goal to open the second stanza.  The East Central advantage reached 19 points before Batesville started to chip away at it. Ashley Nobbe dialed up a pair of long distance dedications, the first time the Bulldogs got back-to-back buckets in the opening half, to trim the deficit to 13.  The teams traded points for the rest of the half with East Central up at the break, 37-24.  

Nobbe’s six points led BHS in the second period while EC’s Josie Trabel netted six to top the Trojans.  

A field goal by Nobbe and a trifecta by Abby Westerfeld cut the Bulldog deficit into single digits, 37-29.  The Trojans’ Brilan McCory hit a pair of 3-pointers surrounding a field goal by Nobble to push the Trojan edge to 10, 43-33, headed to the final eight minutes.

Trabel, the Trojans’ leading scorer, had been held to just eight points through three quarters.  She came alive in the fourth with a personal 7-0 run early to give the hosts a 17-point lead.  Batesville got a pair of field goals before Trabel, again, scored the Trojans’ next seven points.   McCory helped close out the 62-41 victory, going 4 of 4 at the line in the closing minutes.
