HASKELL -- After losing its first two games of the season, Harmony Grove (2-2) has made statements out of its last two opponents, winning by a combined 112-35. The Lady Cardinals put a hurt on the Woodlawn Lady Bears to open the Bill Gibbs Memorial Tournament on Tuesday, winning 55-26.
â€śI thought we had really good effort in the second half,â€ť Head Coach John White said. â€śThe shot selection was better and the effort in general helped us pull away with a big third quarter.â€ť
Though the score was heavily weighted in Harmony Groveâ€™s favor, the first half was a much closer game.
