The Panola Fillies improve to 3-0 in conference after a Saturday, Dec. 8, Region 14 battle in Carthage.  The Fillies overcame a 19-point first half deficit, coming out with the 3-point victory behind a huge scoring surge in the second half.

The first lead of the game for the Fillies came at the 3:23 mark with Adashchyk scoring two back-to-back buckets to put the Fillies up 3 with 2:50 left in the game.

With 10.1 ticks left on the clock, Weronika Nowakowska scored the game-winning bucket, going the length of the court and drawing the foul and 1, to give the Fillies a 75-73 lead with 3.0 left in the game. The Fillies forced a turnover and made 1 of 2 free throws to end game victorious, 76-73.
