The Panola Fillies came out strong against the #6 team, Trinity Valley Community College, and won the game 70-63 on Wednesday, Dec. 10 in the A.J. Johnson Gymnasium.

“The Fillies put together a good team effort and remain undefeated at home,” said Eddie Kite, Head Coach.

The Fillies defense led to the victory. The Fillies began the game down 5-0 start from jump. After they settled in, the Fillies went on a 11-5 run and to take the lead. This would jump start a defensive stance that resulted in steals that led to a 36-27 half time lead.

The Cardinals would not lay down easily.  The Fillies saw their 11 point lead dwindle to 3. A strong defensive stance, forcing 6 turnovers and empty possessions, allowed Panola to head in to the last period with a 56-40 lead.

Despite being outscored 23 -14 the fourth quarter, the Fillies held on to the lead and won the game. Panola was led by Patience Okpe (21), Maryia Adashchyk (13), and Ekaterina Karchevskaya (10).
