The Duncanville Pantherettes traveled to Irving MacArthur to start the second half of district 7-6A action and came away with the 70-51 victory.
The score doesn’t reflect that the Cardinals managed to keep the game fairly close, trailing by only five points with just under three minutes to play in the first half. But, from that point on the Pantherettes used their quickness and strong defense to stretch the score to an 11-point lead at the half, and then the final 19-point advantage to close out the game.
Lauryn Bowie led Duncanville scorers with 21 points in the contest, followed by Starr Jacobs with 17 points, Aniya Thomas with 13 points, and Aakilah Caldwell with 11 points.
Defensively the Pantherettes dominated the stats, totaling 28 rebounds, 5 steals, and 5 blocks. Bowie and Jacobs were credited with 6 rebounds each, while Thomas was credited with 3 steals.
Alyson Gamez had 21 points for MacArthur in the losing effort. Sarah Andrews contributed 14 points, and Tailor Broussard scored 11 points.
Next up for Duncanville is a 6 p.m. home game on Friday against the Grand Prairie Lady Gophers. Duncanville defeated Grand Prairie earlier this season by the lopsided score of 91-1.
