The Times (Northeast Benton County) - - SPORTS - MARK HUMPHREY Spe­cial to The TIMES

Pea Ridge shot lights out from 3-point land on the way to hand­ing Prairie Grove a 59-28 drub­bing on Fri­day, Dec. 21.

The first half was dis­as­trous for the Lady Tigers, while Pea Ridge seem­ingly had every­thing go­ing their way in­clud­ing the fact that Prairie Grove only at­tempted four free throws for the en­tire game.

Lady Black­hawks Kate­lyn Swope, Hol­lyn Davis and Gabbi Adams all hit treys for Pea Ridge as the Lady Black­hawks opened up a 21-3 lead in the first quar­ter. Prairie Grove’s uphill bat­tle was com­pounded when Pea Ridge scored the first 17 points of the sec­ond pe­riod to set the stage for a blowout. Swope had two more 3-point­ers dur­ing the run which pushed Pea Ridge’s lead to 38-7. Davis added an­other and the Lady Black­hawks took a 42-10 lead into half­time.

Davis nailed two more 3-point­ers in the fourth and fin­ished with 21 points. Swope added 12 and Gabby Adams 10 for the Lady Black­hawks, while Emily Grant led Prairie Grove (5-5, 0-3) with 14.

Early in the sea­son Prairie Grove coach Kevin Froud pre­dicted one of the big­gest chal­lenges to hav­ing a suc­cess­ful sea­son would be the Lady Tigers hold­ing their own on the boards. Pea Ridge out-re­bounded the Lady Tigers by 10 (35-25).
