ANSON — A little extra defensive intensity and much better offensive execution after the break helped the Anson Lady Tigers to a 39-23 win over De Leon and a first-place finish in Pool A of the Anson Lions Club Tournament on Friday.
Gracie Feagan scored 16 points and Valerie Fells added seven more to lift Anson (15-3), which advances to the semifinal round where it will meet Roscoe at 8:30 a.m. Childress and Roby will meet in the other girls semifinal at 11:30 — both games will be at AHS’ primary gymnasium.
The winners will converge to play for the tournament championship at 6 p.m.
On the boys’ side, three cancellations from Hamlin, Richland Springs and Vega (the first two due to extended football seasons), cut a 12-team round robin to just nine, forcing some last-minute changes in the schedule.
Gunter, Wellington and Post advanced as the pool winners and will play a three-team round robin for the title on Saturday.
