Carthage, TX-The Panola Fillies went undefeated after beating Our Lady of the Lake (92-43) and Murray State College (74-50) in the Panola Classic Friday and Saturday.

Against Our Lady of the Lake, the Fillies found themselves tied at the end of the first quarter after a rocky start. Early foul trouble and turnovers forced Head Coach Eddie Kite to go to the bench early. Sophomore guard, Patience Opke, and her tenacious defense sparked the team enabling the Fillies to close out the period on a 26-11 run. The Fillies once again had evenly distributed scoring efforts from the team as everyone scored. Stefany Lorenco and Daria Eremeeva led the charge with 15 apiece, while Okpe (14) and Maria Adashchyk (11) rounded out double digit scoring for the Fillies. Sophomore Jaye Cage and Ekaterina Karchevskya poured in 9 points off the bench.

The Fillies put together a good half effort both defensively and offensively solid program in Murray State College. The Fillies were able to force and capitalize on turnovers and get out to a 42- 18 half time lead. Okpe once again would lead a mid-game surge going four for four from deep in one quarter while recording a game high 20 points. Cage would lead the Fillies in assist with a game high 5. Both Okpe and Nailah Blount would grab 8 boards apiece.
