Derry grabbed an early lead on the Lady Gladiators and never looked back. A solid defensive effort kept South Allegheny from ever getting any momentum going, starting with only surrendering a single free throw in the first frame. The Lady Trojans took advantage of some mismatches inside to accrue their twenty-seven point halftime lead. While the offense was not as efficient in the second half, the defense continued to hold South Allegheny in check and allowed Derry to extend the lead.
The Lady Trojans will battle East Allegheny on Thursday (1/24) with the fourth spot in Section 3-3A on the line.
