HAMLET â€”Â For the first quarter and a half, Triton was right in it.
But as things so often do with Class A No. 1 Oregon-Davis, the Lady Trojansâ€™ early deficits snowballed fast.
OD closed the second quarter on a quick 12-0 run to take a 39-21 halftime lead, then used a 22-4 third quarter to run out to a commanding 36-point lead and put the game out of reach. The end result was a 75-35 victory by the Lady Cats at home at The Den in Hamlet Thursday.
