Holding their opponents to single-digit scoring per quarter has been the norm this season, and this game was no different. The only time the Lady Warriors saw double-digit scoring was in the last period when they matched Duncanville’s 17 points.

The Pantherettes dominated in every area of the game. DHS pulled down 16 more rebounds and were led by Antoina Robinson’s six. To go along with her rebounds, she tied three other players, Kiara Perry, Ariel Atkins and Tasia Foman, with 3 steals each.

Offensively, the Pantherettes were led by Tasia Foman and her 21 points. Also scoring in double-digits was Kiara Perry with 15, and Ariel Atkins with 12.

Atkins got in foul trouble early with three fouls in the first half that limited her playing time.
