The 8th grade Lady Quakers inched closer to at least a tie for the regular season EOBC
championship with a 34-24 win over much improved Minerva. The Lions took a 9-8 lead at the end of the first quarter before the Quakers raced back to take a 20-15 halftime lead..Expanding their margin t0 31-19 after three periods, the Quakerettes took the air out of the ball during the 4th quarter, exercising an efficient delay game for the final margin.
Two regular season games are scheduled this week before the league tournament begins Saturday at West Branch. The Quakers will travel to West Branch on Monday evening before hosting the Carrollton Warriors in their final home game on Wednesday. Brackets for the tournament will be released after Wednesday’s league finales.
