We started off very slowly and were down by one after one quarter of play, 7-6. We picked up the defensive intensity and had a big second quarter scoring twenty one points and went in at halftime with a 27-13 lead. We also had a nice third quarter as we limited San Isidro to only four points while adding eighteen for us and held a convincing 45-17 lead after three quarters of play.
We did a really good job of pressuring their point guard. Our post players stepped up inside and made some nice moves around the basket. Scoring for the Cowgirls were as follows: Mamie Shelton-22, Destinee Thomas-13, Danielle Dawson-10, Allie Donnell- seven, Hailey Ruiz and Jasmyn Smith-three. This was a nice team win as every Cowgirl contributed to the victory. Team members for the Cowgirls are as follows: Anna Castren, Lidia McBee, Allie Donnell, Mamie Shelton, Destinee Thomas, Jasmyn Smith, Danielle Dawson, Heather Gillin, Mariah Mesa and Hailey Ruiz.
