The visitors took a 14-9 lead at the end of the first period and then added nine to the margin by capturing the second quarter scoring race 15-6.
The Pettus defense pressured the Leopards and worked the ball in low to post Victoria Arrisola, as Kenedy did not have an answer for the Lady Eagle inside game.
Arrisola finished the night with 23 points and 14 rebounds to dominate inside.
The teams played evenly over the second half but the 29-15 halftime margin was too much for the Leopards to overcome. Both teams hit for 10 points in the third period, and the Lady Eagles outscored the home team 17-15 over the final quarter.
Arrisola led the Pettus team scoring, and Hailee Schauer followed with 11 points. Chloe Garza connected for eight points and dished out six assists. On defense, Chloe swiped the ball eight times against the Leopards.
